here is my circuit/breadboard.. I do 'not' think its my circuit..as once the PSU is dialed down... it starts working?
Almost correct. That larger capacitor you have wired between ground and +5vdc should be changed so that it's negitive lead is still wired to ground as you presently have it, but it's positive lead is connected to your regulator's input pin, which is any of the pins in row two on your picture.Lefty
however,...I have a question.. (sorry if this is 'noob' stuff)
