Trying to set up an LED array off an Arduino Uno that has 60 LEDs, each individually controlled.
I’ve tried to run the examples under the ShiftOut page, as well as a number of different Shift Register walk throughs, using the 74HC595 IC, but nothing I seem to do gets any results. I’ve rewired everything multiple times, tried changing I/Os on code/board, tested the LEDS (trying to get one 595 to work first, so only set up with 8 LEDS at the moment), but for whatever reason, none of the example codes on line produce any results.
I can’t figure out if I’m missing something really simple, or something really complicated, but I’m pulling my hair out over it.
http://arduino.cc/en/tutorial/ShiftOut << this is the link I started with, but neither that nor a few other online walkthroughs seem to work.
