yes it was the code...

in the example code of the capacitive sensor there are 3 inputs, i only wired 1 of them so it always timed out on the other two.... 

next time i'll wait a week before i'll post..

thanks to all who replied!

Hello,

I hope somone can help me..
I'm realy new to arduino and well, electronics in general actualy but i'm having a problem with my arduino mega r3 (i think).

I bought this mega for a project i want to built with a matrix of electro magnets and ferro fluid and started out with some simple examples like the one for the ping shield and for a capacitive touch sensor and i noticed that the reaction time of the arduino is extremely slow. For instance the touch sensor, when i look at the serial monitor i have a reaction time of 3900ms.. when i take out the code for the serial comm. it makes no difference, it takes about 4 seconds before a led starts to light up after i touch the sensor.. i think i'm just missing something but i can't figure out what it is.

I realy hope someone can help me out..

Thanks in advance!

p.s.

I checked the serial connection and this works fine, everything i send is echo'd back without any visible delay..

Anne
