Need help designing a counter circuit. (I don't have a lot of experience designing circuits) Answered

I am currently designing a counter circuit, however, i keep running into issues and a point in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.

Components I want to include: - a 7-segment display and 4026 - a PICAXE and/or a 555 IC (the PICAXE would be used to turn the device off without resetting the 7-segment display) - an LED to show that the device is on - three switches: one to reset, one to turn off/on the device and one to add to the count - possibly a piezo buzzer to read the count on the 7-segment display (?)

I have attempted to make this circuit (it is attached) but did not get very far. Again, any advice would help, thanks.

Again, you are not giving more information as in your previous thread @ https://www.instructables.com/community/DIY-Counte...
Again, i can only suggest you fiollow the build-instructions linked in your other thread and post the problems you have with it in detail.

Piezo: What? Like voice synthesis???

Go with a Arduino like an Arduino pro micro for 2$
