Yes, It is easy if you have an Arduino handy. Write a scratch to
try EVERY address one at a time. Print the currently attempted
address top the screen
In fact there is a pre-written sketch in the IDE's I2C examples
folder. You can run that and it will report what it finds. It just
tries reads on every possible address.
