Topic: Problem with led matrix array (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic

MrMcChicken

Hi all, I am pretty new at this topic and want now to use some arrays for further projects.
But now I have a problem I can't solve since yesterday.

I think there is this problem because the gnd's aren't all LOW. But why are those two led's on?
I have really no idea...

Here is the code:

And here is a pic of the result.
All resistors are the same.



Hope somebody can help me to find the mistake.
Cheers

So where is the schematic?

MrMcChicken

The schematic of the Matrix is really simple. There are 5 rows with 7 led each. The rows have a common gnd ant the columns have a common anode.
I use 330R resistors. Everything is connectet to the digital pins of my Arduino UNO.

Sorry that is insufficient.
It might be simple for you but I have no idea how you wired it up, so I can't spot any errors you might have made.

That makes no sense at all.

Where?

Maybe some one else with special powers will be able to help you.

Good luck.

What do you mean with special resistors? I can light the whole matrix with those resistors. But if I want to use this array I get this problem.
