4017 decade counter clock input isn't working? Answered
I got a new 4017 decade counter. When I wire it up it will turn on Q0 output. Pin 13 is grounded and pin 15 is grounded through a 10k resistor. I am using two AA batteries. When I tap the clock pin with a wire connected to power it wont turn on Q1. If I accidentally short the circuit it will change. If I tap pin 15 with power it will reset. Is the chip broken or am I doing something wrong? Please help!
