Help! I'm trying to use a PIR sensor with the arduino UNO to turn a mini-cassette recorder on and off (the play button) Answered
Hello! I soldered wires onto the "Play" switch on the cassette recorder. With the Play button depressed, when I touch the wires the recorder plays the cassette. When the wires are not pressed together it stops playing. I hooked the Sensor into the Arduino board using the same time of set-up to light up an LED light. The sensor works, lighting up the LED. When I exchange the LED for the wires to the cassette player, the cassette just keeps playing, unaffected by the motion sensing. I tried running a 10K 200 & 300 resistor between the cassette wires and it didn't work at all. I'm thinking it may be a coding thing, but not sure. These are the codes I've tried: http://www.ladyada.net/learn/sensors/pir.html (the one at the end) & https://www.instructables.com/answers/Help-with-Arduino-1/
Thank you for your help and suggestions.
