Ultimately I'm looking to build something that's going to count revolutions as part of a guitar pick up winder.
I've got a circuit hooked up with 4 x 4026 counters going into a 4 digit 7 segment display. I believe I have the correct linking of the chips withe carry from one going into the clock of the other. But every time I provide a clock pulse all 4 digits on the display increment by 1 rather than just the least significant.
I have the pin outputs from each of the chips going into the corresponding cathode of the 7 seg display but I just cannot get it to count more than 0 - 9.
What am I getting wrong?
This is my first question on here. I'm new to electronics and have been working at this for a few days but always run into the same problem. Really appreciate any help.
Thanks for the comments and answers so far. I've added what I hope passes for a circuit diagram...
I think I've got the clock in and carry out (/10) connected correctly and I think I've got the right outputs going into each of the common cathodes on the display. I'm not worried too much about re-setting or inhibiting the clock right now so I've put them to negative. I'm not doing anything with Pins 4 and 14.
The LED on the left is just another method of me knowing a clock pulse should be going in
