A few months ago I bought a RasPi 3 B+ to act as an overglorified doorbell using reed switches to tell the Pi to play a custom MP3 with the "Playsound" Module into the Company's PA system.
It worked flawlessly up until 2 days ago when we experienced a power outage. The Pi and PA system are on battery back up until we got power back so no damage should have been sustained. I've troubleshot all of the wires, switches, audio plugs and all non Pi hardware and they all work fine. I have the Pi set to use analog instead of HDMI even though it doesn't have a monitor plugged into it just to be safe. I can get YouTube videos and the raw .mp3 itself to play on VLC through the A/V port without any problems but but my Python script no longer plays sound through it, but the script WILL play sound through HDMI.
Safe to say I've spent way too many hours trying things to get it work and I've exhausted them all. I just don't understand why it would work flawlessly for so long and then just stop. I haven't even updated Python or any of the libraries required to make it work.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated!
My spaghetti Code run on Python3.5:
import RPi.GPIO as GPIO #import the GPIO library import time from playsound import playsound GPIO.setmode(GPIO.BOARD) GPIO.setup(12, GPIO.IN, pull_up_down=GPIO.PUD_UP) GPIO.setup(36, GPIO.IN, pull_up_down=GPIO.PUD_UP) name = "Admin" print("Hello " + name) chime = "chime.mp3" while True: if GPIO.input(12): print("Front door is closed") time.sleep(2) if GPIO.input(12) == False: print("Front door is open") playsound(chime) time.sleep(2) if GPIO.input(36): print("Back door is closed") time.sleep(2) if GPIO.input(36) == False: print("Back door is open") playsound(chime) time.sleep(2)
