Checked the polarity on the LED's and even switched them around, 560 ohm resistor on the cathode side of the LED. Ran a 24 awg jumper to my bread board. Circuit is in tack based on ohm test using sound setting on my ohm meter.

On my arduino I setup for the single LED blink program and connected it to pin 13 cathode and grd on the anode this works fine.
I then wanted to do the next step of the tutorial with the alternating LED's. For this I connected up the LEDS from Pin 2 - 8 and did the setup, did not work. I then checked my connections and resistors all good.
Connected jumper from pin 13 Digital output to breadboard placed LED and jumped back to ground on arduino.
Still did not work.
LED's work fine on the arduino.

Any help is appreciated.

good to know, I think I am getting ahead of myself and need to take a step back and just follow the tutorial and work into this stuff slowly.

Thank you, I will look into the hot air and good soldering iron, and start with through hole. Have no experience with building pcb's in this day anyway.

I have been trying to identify new things on an old pc power supply I might be able to use with test etc. on my new Arduino uno. I found some voltage regulators, PWM, resistors etc.  What are my chances that I can use stuff like this, and be able to use small componets like on the Arduino?  I am old school analog and only have a single power soldering iron?

I appreciate any input or advice.

I figured as much, I can at least use the servo and LED and photosensors. Thank you for the quick response.
7  Using Arduino / Microcontrollers / parallax basic stamp 2 on: September 13, 2012, 09:22:27 pm
I received a parallax basic 2 stamp and accessories several years ago from a friend. I was unable to use it as program was based on windows software and RS232 connection. Can this be used for arduino programming?  I also thought i saw parallax stuff being used but am very interested in the arduino software as it is open source and I am an old Linux user in my previous job.
