Sense Hat on Raspberry pi 4 not showing all sensors

Hi there!
I am using a Sense Hat on Raspberry pi 4.
I have exactly the same problem that bubba198 reported on 14 July. I tried the proposed solution but the problem persists! Sense Hat sensors are still missing as you can see in my screenshot.

Please Advise!

There is already a solution for it for bubba198 Sense Hat support on Raspberry Pi

Thank you for the quick response !

If you mean this
"cd /etc/myDevices/plugins/cayenne-plugin-sensehat
sudo sed -i ‘s/True/False/’ /etc/myDevices/plugins/cayenne-plugin-sensehat/sensehat/startservice.py
sudo python3 setup.py install
sudo service myDevices restart
"

I have already tried ( twice …) . No Luck . Any other solution or idea to try ?

run this command and share the log:-

sudo service myDevices restart
tail -f /var/log/myDevices/cayenne.log

check your connection with sensehat. The raspberry pi is not detecting it. You may want to manually check and see if you can read data from sensehat first.

Thank you !
I will check the hardware connection . Any suggestions for reading/testing manually ?

https://projects.raspberrypi.org/en/projects/getting-started-with-the-sense-hat

Thank you !
I will read and try . First try using python3 returns error " Cannot detect RPI Sense …etc " .
My Pi obviously does not see my Sense Hat for some reason , even though it has all its led lights brightly on .
Thank you again !

is it continuously on??

Yes

Like this all the time

that means some issue with the sensehat or connection. The light should turn ON and then turn OFF once booted.

dtoverlay=rpi-sense

was missing on /boot/config.txt

After adding and rebooting PROBLEM SOLVED !
Thank you

I have done all of the suggested changes. The lights go off as they should, and also have access and read each one of the sensors and the LED-matrix via python examples. So there should be no connection or hardware problem. Still the

tail -f /var/log/myDevices/cayenne.log

gives

On the dashboard I have only the SensHAT Digital and SensHAT Analog actuator.

What happens here ?

Thanks

can you try

cd /etc/myDevices/plugins/cayenne-plugin-sensehat
sudo sed -i ‘s/True/False/’ /etc/myDevices/plugins/cayenne-plugin-sensehat/sensehat/startservice.py
sudo python3 setup.py install
sudo service myDevices restart

I have already done that. Here is my current startservice.py file:

“”"
This module provides script for starting the Sense HAT service. This service is needed so that it can be run
as root to use the sense_hat module, while allowing clients that are not running as root to access Sense HAT data.
“”"
from sensehat.manager import start_server

if name == “main”:
start_server(True)

of course I have done it once more… but still…

^C

I pressed CTL-C because after some pause a next read of rows comes out…

since you are able to read the data from sense hat using python, I would suggest you to use https://github.com/myDevicesIoT/Cayenne-MQTT-Python to send sense hat data to send to cayenne as it will take some time to resolve this issue.

Ok… It seems I am of the lucky ones… Hopefully you come eventually with a solution…

thanks for the fast answer…
