Codebender + Blynk + ESP8266 + SparkFun Pro Micro project need help

I’m using codebender + Blynk +ESP8266 + SparkFun Pro Micro.

Before SparkFun Pro Micro, I test arduino UNO board and codebender, Blynk, ESP8266. That’s OK.
Blynk APP works well.

And I change arduino UNO to SparkFun Pro Micro, verify and run code is ok.
And I change board type Generic Board at Blynk App.
But Blynk APP says “Your Generic Board in not in network”.

How Can I solve this problem ?

I get Answer…

Problems is two.

One, SoftwareSerial library has pin limitations, in case of Pro Micro(like leonardo board).

Two. Blynk App boardSetting is wrong.
I change App board setting generic board to leonardo.

Great It’s working. Thanks Blynk.

I had never considered this combination. Just for my clarification, are you saying you just had to chose one of these pins: 8, 9, 10, 11, 14 (MISO), 15 (SCK), 16 (MOSI).

And change the type to Leonardo to get it to work?


Yes, I used pin 8, 9 for ESP8266, And BLYNK APP chose board as Leonardo.
Oop, My board SparkFun Pro Micro is 5V power, So I used 3.3v power supply for ESP8266 and level shift IC for ESP8266 and Pro Micro board.
as I thought, If SparkFun Pro Micro 3.3V board, then no need 3.3v power supply and level shift IC.

Have a good time with BLYNK.
