Arduino Mega Problem

Post by jsmiller12009 » Fri Apr 25, 2014 5:01 pm

So I used the recommended pin arrangement for the Mega (shown at the bottom). I try running the clock example and it will show the correct thing for maybe like 2 seconds and then it's just scattered lit LED's. What could be going wrong?

AREF > AREF
GND > GND
13 > D52
12 > D50
11 > D51
10 > D53
9 > D9
8 > D8
7 > D7
6 > D6

Instead, give the method described in the link below a try - it allows using the included DMDcon board:
