This is what my program looks like - changed the led input to 6 and no of leds to 50. The LEDs power on all together when i connect it to a power source. Also read nextjen's comments and checked for the first LED to start blinking but doesn't seem to work :|
Hey Bxl, so i bought the LED's you suggested and all the onnections are in the place. Sorry for the absolute noob questions but this is my first time - The code got verified but there seems to be a problem uploading to the board . Have attached an image for reference of the error message shown.
Alright, got that sorted too. The program got uploaded to the board but the lights aren't turning on. Have exchanged the 2 cables between GRND and input no 3 as well but it still doesnt seem to light up. Right now i'm powering my Arduino through a USB cable to my computer and also have a 12v 1A adapter if required. I'm not powering the LEDs because it should have sufficient power from the arduino alone to atleast light up.Also, If a program gets uploaded to the board do i have to keep the USB connection still connected or does the board work as a standalone ?
Hey Bxl, this is a great tutorial! much appreciated. Downloaded the iso file and loaded it onto my arduino software. Also powering the Arduino with a 12v power charger(guy at the store told me to do so). But I've never dealt with LEDs before so earlier i could just plug the LED's directly into a power source and it would light up.. the LED's i have already have a round pinned plug point on one end. In this case - how do i connect it to the arduino?
