PLEASE READ THIS I CAN'T POST MORE COMMENTS FOR TODAY SINCE I AM A NEW MEMBER
Nah just one that like has more info on the matter at hand. I'm sure using a multimeter has been studied intensively. I only soldered the one arduino. The rest I just used the way they came and tested them with an LED soldered to a resistor before using the multimeter.
**Edit:**Also I just signed up on this website so that's all the replies I can have. Unfortunately the website does not allow me to upload pics directly since I'm a new user. I can also no longer add replies today so please keep checking this last comment for immediate replies.
EditCan you please Elaborate on what I'm doing wrong. Saying that I am handling the microcontroller wrong doesn't help me without context.
Edit: Yes woo I don't know how my brain farted that hard that was a dumb mistake, But luckily the boards seem to be fine (besides the defect they already had). I did have extra boards that are unopened but upon testing one with my LED-resistor yesterday (after I was told that I may have fried all of my boards), it behaved the same way the rest of the boards did.
I have one or 2 other boards still in their bags that I will test by doing the following:
pin -> ammeter -> 220 ohm with LED -> gnd
If something is wrong with that please let me know.
I am not entirely sure how to look for flaws on the board.
Problem solved? analogWrite(pin, 1023) will set the value of any pin to HIGH and produces the right current.
Anyone has an explanation?
