I was going to use a separate power supply for the servos.. only 1 servo will be running at once.. clearly I was mistaken as to this group being able to help me as connecting 1 wire from a switch to an arduino compared to connecting 10 wires from 10 switches to control 5 individual servos.. sorry I've wasted yours and everyone else's time
Trouble is I already have the sketch done for the diagram.. I just don't get people directing me to something totally off subject instead of answering my question
WOW!OK, take the switch you have, connect one of the pins to the Arduino input. Add a 10K resistor from ground to that SAME input pin, finally connect the other pin from the switch to 3.3V. However, if you are running the Arduino on 5 Volts then you should use that voltage on the switch.
If you have 10 people giving answers, you may get 10 different ways that steers you to an answer.Many people here try to lead you to an answer by showing you how to answer things yourself. A method I prefer.At the start of your threads, tell us you don't want to be taught.Tell us you only want people to answer your question and you don't want any questions from us .See how far that goes on this forum. FYI.
Its not that I don't want to be taught.. it's that I asked what I thought was a simple question and was told to basicly go off project and do something else..
