I also have trouble getting the blinky pov programmed.
Assembly was quick and easy. The pre set POV patterns work as expected.
I can get the POV into bootloader mode;
-switching it on while pushing the button gives me a flashing LED (the first one)
-releasing the buttong increases the frequency of flashes for this LED
-pressing and releasing the button again turns on LED 2 continiously
I hold the Clock and Data sensors close (almost against) to the screen for programming - making sure I press and release the second time with said sensors close to the screen so they can sense the difference between black or light.
Then, when I start loading my message only the first LED flashes, the second LED stays on. At the end of this loading of the message the second LED just stays on and that's it. Nothing more happens.
I've also managed to get what I think is a checksum error. Sometimes LED 1 and 3 start flashing. But I expect for a checksum error to have LED 3 and 4 to flash.
Perhaps there is a way around to programming it with a cable?

My son just built his board. We are going through the same programming issues that you are seeing. What the instructions say on the programming website about which LED's blink do not match what we are seeing. I'm seeing the same thing that you stated. I believe mine is going into failure mode and the 3rd and 4th LED are not blinking, but the 1st and 3rd LED are alternating. Still going to try some of the other fixes (brightness, lights out,.....) will let you know what I find out. Ours is doing exactly what you are seeing though. So we are all in the same boat.
