Re: 7 hours of work down drain! Bout to give up on ardiunos..
I tried to hookup a simple project, drive the RGB portion of lcd 16x2. Failed. Thought hey, its 5ma a piece, so hook up to pwm ports. Start to flash... flicker. I add a capacitor... someway along the thing goes belly up. LED #13 lookin dim. 5V is 2.06, so is 3V3... shitThink the microwave or a 2lb hammer will fix it best?
I hooked the common anode RGB 16x2 LCD through a 1kOhm resistor to +5V and the PWM pins.
I need a good throw-away uWave oven. It's fun making plasma, but it'll burn out the unit quick.
Secondly, is there a putty or something for fastening stuff? I'm shooting through masking tape. I seen Evan Kale use something, I thought it was pla-dough, I found out hard way that doesn't work.
