Problem wtih Arduino UNO and ESP8266 "ESP8266 is not responding"

I have Arduino UNO and ESP 8266 ESP-01 and I am using program that is writen down below. I have conections like that picture is showing This is my cable connection.. I am using last version of Arduino IDE and my ESP8266 is working on 9600 baud rate. It reports same problem everytime. What can I do to fix this?

#define BLYNK_PRINT Serial

#include <ESP8266_Lib.h>
#include <BlynkSimpleShieldEsp8266.h>

// You should get Auth Token in the Blynk App.
// Go to the Project Settings (nut icon).
char auth[] = "522812af5910491faae9522c72f5260a";

// Your WiFi credentials.
// Set password to "" for open networks.
char ssid[] = "AMIS-1-00219659613C";
char pass[] = "************";

// Hardware Serial on Mega, Leonardo, Micro...
//#define EspSerial Serial1

// or Software Serial on Uno, Nano...
#include <SoftwareSerial.h>
SoftwareSerial EspSerial(0, 1); // RX, TX

// Your ESP8266 baud rate:
#define ESP8266_BAUD 9600

ESP8266 wifi(&EspSerial);

void setup()
  // Debug console


  // Set ESP8266 baud rate

  Blynk.begin(auth, wifi, ssid, pass);

void loop()

This is the problem “ESP8266 is not responding”.

This is a common issue with device combos… and has been debated, questioned and resolved many times here and in other websites. You can find ALL your answers by searching and most importantly reading all the other posts about UNO & ESP (and other keywords as you think of them :slight_smile: ) in this forum alone.

Please do not ask further questions in those other posts… you already have this topic for clarification of anything you read about. Just read, test, repeat as necessary.


There is absolutely NO more need to go through it all again and again.

HINT: you are using the wrong pins here…
