VU Meter help Answered
I'm trying to build a VU meter and am having trouble finding a schematic that actually works. I having tried using the LM3915 and LM3916 both seem to act the same way. I've tried 5v 9v and 12v sources along with every schematic I can find with no luck. Either all the lights flicker a very fast.
These are the schematics I have tried:
Nothing seems to work. I have added two 1uf caps across the source and a variety of resistor combinations but always end up with nothing or flickering lights. What have I done wrong?
