MPU6050 not being detected by i2c Scanner

help :fearful:

Hey all,

So I’m connecting my MPU6050 to an Arduino micro running the DMP Example code however, every time it says that the mpu connection fails!

I ran the i2c scanner to see what address the MPU6050 was in but it says no devices found. I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong.

I have the following pins connected:

VIN to 5V (also tried 3.3V)
GROUND to GROUND
SDA to A4
SCL to A5

We’ve also tried INT to D2.

Pictures of my breakout board and overall setup are below. Do you have any idea what could be causing this to go wrong. The light on the MPU lights up so we know that electricity is flowing/it’s connecting.

The Arduino Micro has other pins for I2C and interrupt. The Arduino Micro is a smaller version of the Leonardo.
