One thing to check is the header is fitted the correct way round, as this prevents the i2c interface working. This is shown by the following:
Pi-battery returns 50% and all other values 0.
The pi cannot be fully shutdown from the operating system, as the hat isnt told to stop.
No audio on the speaker.
The correct was round is to have the ridges on tge connector facing forward, as shown in the manual. This causes the wires to face the screen.
This fixed the audio and battery monitor issues i was having on the 2nd hand pi-top laptop that i purchased.
