It's getting the 5v it needs from pins 10/11/13. It does work.
It's getting the 5v it needs from pins 10/11/13. It does work. Just has a tiny bit of noise issues and only works under a bizarre configuration as described earlier.
In the diagram on your site there is a 10k resistor going from SS <D10> to ground. 1. What's that for and is it really needed? Could it help with the noise?
2. I noticed all of you caps are set diagonally. Is there reason behind that?
3. My caps looks different too. They are the brown (ceramic disc). Does that matter?
