Did any of the updates fix the issue? Have you tried Chromium? Firefox is not a supported browser so we have less knowledge of that one.

Re: Vilros Pidock 400 (Real?)

The youtube video comments say "insane price" and that what you get is worth 100$ -- I agree that 239$ is insane price, and missing speakers and battery. Given what it costs to have injection moulded designed and cases made, $239 doesn't seem so insane. EVERYONE underestimates how much it...

Try sudo rpi-update; sudo reboot and retest on the beta development 5.10.73 kernel.
I'm not sure if switching to a beta branch is good enough, as I want the software to be stable
It doesn't seem stable at the moment, so probably not much change by testing the latest code.

Re: Scratch and Lego Raspberry Pi Build HAT

Hi, good question, but with a sad answer. No, there is no Scratch integration.

However, we do publish the protocol to talk to the HAT over UART, so if someone wanted to, they could make a Scratch system that could talk to the HAT.

Re: Can I delete my old posts

The problem with removing old posts is that other posts that rely on them for context are then left sourceless, which often makes entire threads useless, so we prefer people leave things in place.

Re: 3.3V versus 5V Power

The GPIO's are NOT 5v tolerant. So you should power devices from 3.3 if that is an option, or use level shifters if the device needs 5v.

You don't have to. Start with C if you want, then move on to C+. Or Python. Or whatever you want.

Re: No clue what just happened

I suspect the SD card is about to fail.

Get another one and install the latest Pi OS on it, using a USB->SD adapter you should then be able to get the files off the old SD card.

Re: Gaming Seat From a Tesla

First, get the seat working from the standard switch block - presumably it just needs power (quite a lot of power I suspect). Once you have it moving around, then you can look to replacing the switch block with something controllable from a Pi.

Re: UART Garbage - Pi Zero

I suspect that this is a voltage mismatch. The Pi needs the uart running at 3.3v, and may devices run at 5v. The symptom is often garbage characters.
