I'm not sure why I need it though. When used for what's it's designed for, all 88 LEd's are never on all at once.. Maybe 15 at the most.
Also, in this "non working" configuration, can you please measure what voltage you get on the +5V rail?
The soldered LEDS...Have u checked the continuity of it all
But unless you are prepared to follow his instructions
Cause look at the amount of pages we been through over such a simple task !!
That amount of leds is a bit ridiculous to be honest unless you follow another tested circuit prepared to power all those leds.
Cause this path wont get you anywhere.
You're misunderstanding the situation again iyahdub. You're making suggestions to problems that don't exist and making false claims that I'm not doing things I should be doing or vice-verse.QuoteThe soldered LEDS...Have u checked the continuity of it allOf course that isn't a problem because they all light up. Come on man; really?QuoteBut unless you are prepared to follow his instructionsI have been.. Obviously. There's an example of you making a false claim again.QuoteCause look at the amount of pages we been through over such a simple task !!That's because there is a strange problem somewhere and the correct way to wire it doesn't work. Could be a breadboard issue.. Who knows. That's the reason it's taking a while to figure out. I've already got it working correctly but it is using bizarre wiring. We're trying to figure out WHY. Come on man. Quit misunderstanding what's going on.QuoteThat amount of leds is a bit ridiculous to be honest unless you follow another tested circuit prepared to power all those leds.Here again is another example of you missing a critical detail that has already been posted. I mentioned already that I only have ~15 of them on at the most at any given time. Do you understand? That means amperage is not an issue. 13.6mA x 15 = 204mA. That is what is being drawn at most. Come on man, quit making false claims.QuoteCause this path wont get you anywhere.What path? You're obviously not paying very close attention to what's going on. We're trying to figure out why the correct wiring won't work and why the "working configuration" that I've been using does work.
OK then, explain me how it worked for NICK and didnt for you ?!? Cause you have a mistake somewhere.
Projects with much less LEDS use Transistors for the sake of proper functioning
Not working correctly means its not working.
the only thing you have proven so far is that you havent been able to get it to work.
