Should the LEDs still be lit up when I pull the 5V power Hookup out? (Going from the 5v output to the breadboard)? That is what it is doing and I think that is why my LEDs are behaving oddly.

That is very strange...

[this reminded me that I did not invert your variables]

Wait, invert the variables? What does that mean exactly?

Yeah, I think there are some power problems going on here. I don't even have to have the 5v wires plugged in for it Not to work right.

It is the same as it is in the first post. (I inverted all the color values I  needed by hand)



Power problems... Hmmm.


Are you using high intensity leds? Maybe they are using to much ampere?

Aidyn23

Maybe.

Intensity - Min: 6000mcd Max: 8000 mcd

Maybe I'll just use one instead of three at once.
