I have uploaded the temperature, now and adjust sketches to my data logger a couple of times now. If I disconnect the board from the USB port of my computer it seems I lose them. I haven’t turned the board off, just unplugged the USB cord. Is this suppose to happen? I’ve been following along on the second workshop YouTube video and had to stop because I am waiting for my cellular card and the screw terminal stereo jack adapter to arrive so I can hook up my CTD sensor. Thoughts?
Do you have a coin battery in the slot? Could that battery be dead? If you don’t have a battery in the coin slot or if it’s dead, then the clock will reset to Jan 1, 2000 every time the board is unplugged from the computer or battery
Yes, I do and it’s inserted print side up. I guess it’s possible the battery is dead, although it’s new. I also just saw that the day and date are not changing. I last set it on Tuesday and left it plugged in and turned on and when I hit the Serial Monitor it’s still showing Tuesday 2/9/2021. Is that also a sign the battery is dead?
CORRECTION: Day and date are not changing. Time is changing.
