I purchased a set of parts for my Arduino Uno, including a breadboard. I tried connecting the micro controller to the breadboard, but nothing seemed to happen when I decided to test it out with an LED. What could be the problem? Pictures of how I connected it and of the breadboard itself are provided below. I am an almost complete novice in electronics, so could someone please tell me what's wrong? https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-ZtqM4jvmVds/UI3APBaAbTI/AAAAAAAAAUU/zigrsF5bn2M/s912/20121028_192941.jpg
One thing I have found with some el-cheapo breadboards is that the horizontal power lines are NOT connected to each other.
ah, my bad! I thought it was due to bad quality cheap breadboards (I got one for $3 and it was like this). Didn't realise there was a reason for this!
