Hey everyone, I've done some Arduino programming in the past and am excited to work on some basic projects while I have some free time. I wanted to make some of my own breadboard Arduinos but I'm having some issues. I've looked at previous posts, but I'm still unsure as to what I'm doing wrong. My current setup is following that of the one here: http://arduino.cc/en/Main/Standalone , however, I'm unable to get mine to blink. I've set up my circuit as shown in the pictures on the site, and have all the components in place. The blink sketch uploads and works perfectly in my Uno; however, I as soon as I pop it into the breadboard, it's unresponsive. I haven't been as careful as I should have been with handling the pins( I know static discharge will screw me over) but it works perfectly in the Uno. Any explanations or suggestions as to what I can do?
In case someone asks, I've done this: Pin 1 - Reset/ switch Pins 7, 20, 21 - 5v rails Pins 8, 22 - GND rails Pins 9, 10 - 16 MHz Crystal w/ 22pF caps on both ends leading to GND
I've remembered to extend my rails on my long breadboard, and I've tested all of my LED's directions and connections. I've also tested my voltages on the rails, and am getting a solid 4.98V, so I don't think that's the problem.
