up_n_down sketch builds and uploads, but doesn't work

I have successfully build and loaded most of the other sample hexbright sketches, but no luck with up_n_down.

Arduino compiles the sketch and uploads it, but the only thing that happens is that pressing the button turns it red, but the flashlight doesn't turn on.

Am I missing something obvious? Anyone have an idea what the issue might be?

Thanks for the tip, Whitney. That did the trick.

Press the button 5 times. It might be locked; this will unlocked it. I'm quite sorry, that is kind of a bug but it's a bug that is difficult to fix.

FYI: The red light turns on when you push the button regardless of the software uploaded.

If that doesn't work, your hardware might have a problem.
