DFPlayer mini : Unable to begin

userHead Account cancelled 2019-07-03 22:01:10 7234 Views4 Replies
Hi every one,

I'm trying to make this exemple code working but my ESP32 keep saying me that it was unable to begin the serial communication.

Serial monitor output
Code: Select all
DFRobot DFPlayer Mini Demo
Initializing DFPlayer ... (May take 3~5 seconds)
Unable to begin:
1.Please recheck the connection!
2.Please insert the SD card!
This is my setup

I'm using an ESP32 DOIT Devkit v1, I've tried to put the resistor as a pull down for the TX line as see on another tutorial, same for the RX line.

I really can't see what I'm doing wrong, if someone can help me to get this running it would be amazing

Thanks
2022-01-21 18:15:10 I am trying to play music using Arduino Uno and nano serial Rx and tx pin but I don't get success to achieve this
got many type error like
"DFRobot DFPlayer Mini Demo
Initializing DFPlayer ... (May take 3~5 seconds)
Unable to begin:
1.Please recheck the connection!
2.Please insert the SD card! "

while we connect rx and tx pin to 1 and 0 respectively
rather than if i connect those pin to pin 11 and 10 its working
what is the reason behind this?
i don't know
please solve this and show me a right way and give me solution...
code is listed down..
Code: Select all
#include "Arduino.h"
#include "SoftwareSerial.h"

  Serial.println();
  Serial.println(F("DFRobot DFPlayer Mini Demo"));

    Serial.println(F("2.Please insert the SD card!"));
    while (true);
  }
  Serial.println(F("DFPlayer Mini online."));

  myDFPlayer.volume(30);  //Set volume value. From 0 to 30
  myDFPlayer.play(1);  //Play the first mp3
}

void loop()

2021-05-24 17:59:02 I skilled the identical issue. I observed that the solder joint at the TX pin changed into bridged to the SD card holder, efficiently bridging the pin to ground. Try a continuity check among the TX and ground. If they're related you've got got a terrible joint.I changed into capable of get rid of the extra solder and it labored quality after that. Its a medium issue soldering task.

I experienced the same issue. I found that the solder joint on the TX pin was bridged to the SD card holder, effectively bridging the pin to ground. Try a continuity test between the TX and ground. If they are connected you have a bad joint.

I was able to remove the excess solder and it worked fine after that. It's a medium difficulty soldering task.
