Sparki doesn’t respond to the remote

If Sparki is not responding to the remote try the following:

1.) Make sure the thin, clear plastic tab at the bottom of the remote is removed, activating the remote
2.) Make sure Sparki is programmed with a program that works with the remote. The program Sparki is pre-loaded works with the remote, but uploading a new program erases this. You can restore the program Sparki came with by uploading the ‘Restore Default’ example in SparkiDuino
3.) Likewise, you can test that Sparki is reading the remote by trying the ‘Remote’ example. It will show you the remote codes it reads. This code does not have movement programmed, though.
