So I tried to make two snap-o-lanterns. One I wrecked trying to put the microcontroller into the socket (clumsy people should not try to make electronic kits). The second one seems to be fine despite some issues with the 6 pin DIL header (okay I actually put it in the wrong way and had to remove it).
The finished kit only has one LED light up now and then. That's it. No movement and nothing else happens. I have checked the soldering. It looks okay. Anyone have any ideas of what I can do? I'd really love to have one working snap-o-lantern after paying $60 (delivery and the kit) and spending hours on them.
The other thing I am wondering: if I bought the kit, do I have to program the microcontroller somehow? It doesn't say how in the assembly instructions.
