1  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / UNO board doesn't work unless monitor is running on: October 12, 2012, 12:59:07 am
Has anyone seen this issue... I have an uno board, connected to windows XP.  I am connected with the USB cable with a simple connection of three wires in ports 2,3,4 that are running to 2 - 8 bit shift registers running 16 LED's.  I am creating a binary clock.

The code runs through shifting the registers based on the time.  When I am connected through the USB it will upload and try to run.  The lights will start flashing and then it seems to reset and flash again, over and over.  If I open the serial monitor it then runs correctly.

If I unplug the USB and then run it off of a 9v power supply it also runs correctly.

Any ideas?
