I've been trying to get into electronics after finding an old electronics kit in the back of my closet. It came with an Arduino Uno, a bread board, a bunch of wires, LEDs, resistors, and other things.
I decided to try to see if I could light an LED on a bread board for a few minutes before trying the Arduino.
When I try the circuit the LED lights but 30 seconds later it gets hot and burns out.
I'd rather know what I'm doing wrong before I burn more of my LEDs.
