Hello Arduino World.
I am new to this community. I am going through the Basics examples (AnalogReadVoltage) I hooked up my potentiometer and with the knob all the way down it kills the power to the Arduino. When I turn it to the right just a little bit the power comes back on. I do not get a reading of 1023. Its starts off with 2.54 and decreases as I turn it to the right. I have the center pin connected to A0 and the left pin connected to ground and the right pin connected to 5V. What am I doing wrong?
