I have this breadboard:
And I need my Integrated Circuit to be connected exactly like this (Don't pay any attention to the wires. Let's focus on the IC in the middle of the breadboard itself):
However, when I connected the power, it didn't work. Then I found out that the IC was pushed up from the breadboard. I tried to push it down and it worked, but when I released my fingers, it stopped working again. That was like the legs of the IC was not long enough to be buried deeply into the breadboard. I had problems with not only the IC but the pushbutton as well.
Did anybody face that kind of problem like me? Please show me the trick to bury the components deeper in the middle of the breadboard. Thank you.
