Ok so I’m new to this so please go easy on me. This is my 4-5 project with my new Arduino Mega2560 board and I’m following a tutorial from http://oomlout.com/8X8M/8X8M-Guide.pdf. ok so i have built the breadboard up as described and double checked all my connections twice now.
THE PROBLEM. So i have uploaded the sketch from http://tinyurl.com/yjozkrr to my board at that went through with zero problems but my 8x8 matrix is only lit on the bottom 4 rows as if you were looking from above. The top 4 rows are lit but very dim. Now these rows are connected to PWM pins 13-8 so i tested these with a simple blink LED test and they light the LED to 100% brightness???? so i tried the Knight Rider array from the examples and this works fine on PWM pins 7-2 but if i move and alter the sketch for PWM 13-8 i get dim led's.
Am i doing something really stupid here or am I just not understand the board and the sketch??
All Help given will be appreciated. Many thanks!!
