RGB controller issues trying to control RGB LED Answered
Hello, I am trying to control a few 4 pin common anode RGB LEDS. All I want to do is be able to switch between colors. I purchased a 5v LED RF strip controller to see if I could get that to do it but it just cycles constantly between all colors and wont work properly.
I am looking for the most basic way to control these LEDS. Everything I have seen on these uses Arduino to control them. And I have no experience with Arduino or how it works for the moment.
Radioshack sells the perfect example of what I am looking for. The 5mm "7 color blinking LED" they sell changes colors when the power is cut to it with a momentary switch. I am using 0603 RGB LEDs but would like this same effect or something very similar. The LEDS they sell must have some sort of built in controller in order for it to change when the power is cut? If so what would that kind of LED be called?
