Thanks again for your help. I hooked up everything to a breadboard and it works great now. Before, I was hooking up directly to the supplies.

Thanks. I tried re-wiring it. I switched the sides with each other and kept the pin in the middle on A0. It still shorts out with the knob all the way to the left (at around 2.6), but this time the reading goes to 5.0 when its turned all the way to the right.

Hello Arduino World.

I am new to this community. I am going through the Basics examples (AnalogReadVoltage) I hooked up my potentiometer and with the knob all the way down it kills the power to the Arduino. When I turn it to the right just a little bit the power comes back on. I do not get a reading of 1023. Its starts off with 2.54 and decreases as I turn it to the right. I have the center pin connected to A0 and the left pin connected to ground and the right pin connected to 5V. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks.

Mark
