 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hello,

I bought this from amazon:
microtivity IL612 5mm Diffused RGB Controllable LED, Common Anode

However, I tried connecting it in many many ways , with no luck at all ..

if anyone has a simple illustration or Photo (I'm no pro) I would be thankful, i keep seeing these fork like images but I don't get how its connected with the Arduino especially the long end.

another Question this LED blew up, are all LEDs the same ? or that is only for Anode LEDs?(powered it up with 9v battery... Don't know why i thought if it burned, it will only burn out ...)

Thank you all in advance.

The Internet is full of pages telling you all about them - no need to guess.

Burning out would have been totally OK?
