I have set up a 555 monostable circuit and I want to watch it operate on my oscilloscope. I am pretty much a complete newbie when it comes to o-scope operation.
I have set up a circuit just like in this video and you can see where he monitors it on his scope: https://youtu.be/057q6v7uwwU?t=13m14s
I have tried and tried to replicate that, but no luck. I am hoping that I can get some help in general terms first (not necessarily button-by-button), but if that is unavoidable, I have a Rigol DS 1054.
I think it has to do with triggers. I have used triggers before, but in this case the trigger signal is a LOW. I am not sure if I am setting that up right.
Or is he not using triggers and instead just leaving the scope in "Run"?
