Need assistance from the gurus

Post by keiranwyllie » Wed Sep 21, 2016 12:10 pm

Hi all,

Can someone give me an idea whether I'm on the right path with my circuit. It's an LED tactile switch from Jaycar. My signal line is connected to a digital pin on an EtherTen and I have programmed as an INPUT. When pressed, the signal line goes to 5V.

Just after some feedback if possible. I'm having a couple of issues and wanted to eliminate the switch circuit if I can .

Hi Keiran,

Could you be more specific about what sort of issues you were having?

Hi Keiran,

To eliminate the switch being the problem, why not just use a breadboard wire as the switch? I do most of my fiddling on breadboards, with short pieces of wires. I only put a physical switch in place after my initial testing, and just prior to installing perminently.

Good luck, happy troubleshooting :)
