Hi im having trouble with something which i thought would be simple, but its doesn't seem to be.
i compiled the blinking test and is it communicating with my arduino. so i know it is working. however i wanted to switch the current LED with a brighter LED (product code - N20BY Blue LED), i read on some forums that i needed a resistor otherwise it will fuse out, so with that i put the new LED through a breadboard. so the current circuit is
connected through the breadboard via wires
GRD--> to LED --> to 1kohm resistor -->back to 13pin
but im having difficulty with making the Bright LED turn on
i was trying to mimic this tutorialhttp://www.ladyada.net/learn/arduino/lesson3.html
can anyone advise. thanks
