4017 clock enable not working? Answered
Hi. I have a 4017 chip taking clock inputs from a de-bounce switch circuit. I have been trying to get the first two outputs on, one after another, with the second of these o-p's putting pin 13 (clock enable) high which I thought freezes the chip in effect. However this doesn't seem to be happening with my circuit. I know everything is in the right place. Reset is held low, I have one led on pin 2 and one on pin 4, both with appropriate resistors. I had the clock enable on o-p 4 and that worked. I repeatedly pressed the button and the led's didn't come on. But with clock enable on o-p 3, I presses the button and the first led came on after about 9 presses.
If someone could give me some pointers it would be greatly appreciated.
