TEA5767 Issues

Hi, and thanks in advance to anyone who can help me:

I recently tried Dr. Monk's tutorial on making an Arduino breakout board for the TEA5767 radio module (TEA5767 FM Radio Breakout Board for Arduino : 5 Steps (with Pictures) - Instructables). I managed to solder all the pins fin (it was actually my second try), but when connected to Arduino and the amplifier I constructed, all I got was loud static. Did I just burn out the chip when I was soldering? Also, is there some code I could run to test if the chip is working? Finally, do you have any advice for the next time I try soldering one of these chips so I don't burn it out?


Hi Zach,
I see the post is quiet old, but here are my 2 bit...

Did you ever get to the bottom of this?
I'm trying the same thing with the same result; only difference being i'm using Raspberry Pi3.

As for checking the status try this link:

There is a ZIP file attached which contains status.c which will give you the status of TEA.
The only point being you will have to convert the code to suite Arduino.

Let me know if you find anything interesting.
