    Xeuscryste, what was the problem, just a dead battery?

    And, I will be BLUNT with this, based on the way you have carried yourself on this simple circuit, and what appears to be your total lack of understanding of electronics as well as coding... My advise is to learn to crawl before you learn to run...

    Unless you are following specific plans that have it all laid out for you and have the code already done, what you want to do is quite a challenge, and well beyond what a 'newbie' should be tackling until they get a better understanding of everything involved...

    Take baby steps first, learn each step of the way, get a 100% grasp of what is happening at each step and then go for the final project...

    Earlier today you posted this...

    Are you stating that in the last 14 hours or so you have went from basically not having a clue how to do the very basics to having it all this sorted out, and your coding is now complete?

    No, the driver chip wasn't pushed in properly into the board.

    ok then, that is a big mistake, ALWAYS CHECK CONNECTIONS rule number 1. check to see they are both good connections AND they are not shorting

    :rolleyes: I asked repeatably if you had done the things I suggested in post #11, and it was met with silence multiple times... One of those things was to wiggle the chip to confirm it was set...

    Yes, and wiggle the chip I did, didn't I?
