I’m trying to use 3 VL53L0X sensors with my Arduino nano, I’m using the pololu VL53L0X library for this. This worked fine before, but occasionally it would get stuck trying in the .init function of the first sensor. My code is the exact same as the example code in the library. Now it’s almost constantly getting stuck on initing the first sensor, I thought there was a short somewhere in my circuit so I redid all my wiring. It worked for a bit then, but my Arduino released the Magic Smoke™ since I was drawing too much power with 3 sensors.
Subsequently I added a PSU and a voltage regulator and purchased a new Arduino nano, and it worked, for a few minutes after I took a small break I checked again and now it is getting stuck constantly in initing, I thought this was me being dumb and shorting it again somewhere, so I disconnected all the sensors and it still gets stuck in the init loop instead of saying ‘Failed to boot VL53L0X’.
Some extra info, I’m using the Arduino nano with the old bootloader, all the sensors work properly individually.
I’ll be extremely grateful for any help, I’ve been looking for so long for an answer ;-;
