I have been trying for a while now to get a very simple Blink LED program to work on an Arduino setup on a breadboard. I have used the tutorial on the Arduino site as well as a bunch of other searching on the web and I cannot seem to figure out what my problem is. I have a power LED on my setup and I have checked the voltages with a multi-meter so I know/think that power is getting to the chip, but the Blink LED program does not appear to be executing. I can take this same chip and put it back into my Uno and it runs just fine. The power supply is a 9 volt battery it can also power the Uno just fine.
I attached a couple of pictures of the bird’s nest I have created. I think the setup is pretty standard but I must be missing something, right?
Anyway, if any of you more experienced folks have the desire to stare at them for a bit maybe you will see something that my newbie eyes do not.
