Try a different power supply, and make sure it is smooth. Maybe you should use a DC power supply and regulate the voltage.

Thank you DVDdoug and Lakes! This is very helpful, and I built half of it and it looks like it will work! Thanks guys.

Hi everyone!

Is there a code out there that takes audio input (such as an ipod) and convert the music into lights (LEDs)?

Will the Arduino be fast enough for this? Thanks!

Yes...It does fit. Thank you for the information, though!

Oh...This sounds familiar.

I think that Arduino has a tutorial for that and an example....I think is called AnalogRead. Good luck on your project!! Sounds cool.

Opps...I must be tired smiley

Thank you all.

It is a TSOP 1736. Here is the data sheet download: http://www.datasheetdir.com/TSOP1736+IrDA

I would definitely recommend the UNO for a beginner....One, its cheaper and the parts are easy to replace if damaged. The Mega is made for codes with many bytes; it has much storage place, and for a starter, this isn't recommended. Good luck with your future projects, and I hope that this helps!!!!!!!  smiley-grin

Thank you, but with my sensor, it doesn't work.

I think you could also do this with analog circuitry as well. If you want to do this with Arduino, keep in mind you have to program the light to strobe synchronized with the actuation of the pump. This man explains it well in this video:

Good luck with your project!!

I wouldn't try the fuse and liquid nitrogen because there are always different results with different fuses; the material is different, and therefore the insulation would change. Insulation is a large factor in this case.

If you are doing basic projects, and don't need many parts, I recommend going to Radio Shack. Sometimes, the parts can be pricey, but they are high quality. I know you said that you didn't want to go online and order, but when you can't find a part at Radio Shack, go to Mouser Electronics. Here is a link:

Good luck!

Hi everyone!

Is there a code out there for turning on an LED on HIGH for 15 seconds when the Arduino senses infrared light with a TSOP sensor? Thanks!
30  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / Turning on the TV with Infrared on: November 19, 2012, 01:29:24 pm
Hi everyone!

I figured out that my TV remote turns on my TV at a frequency of 0x20. Is there a code out there to make an infrared LED pulse this frequency to turn on my TV? Thanks!
