I've attempted to set up a 556 timer on a breadboard. I bought two 556 timers because the project I will be using it in requires 3 timers, and I wanted to be cost effective.
I have followed a tutorial online about how to wire it on a breadboard, and for right now I am only using one of the timers on the 556 chip. Unfortunately, there is no output going into the LED, i.e it isn't flashing like it should be. I've read the data sheet, turned my LED and capacitor around, and tried a second chip that I have. No luck so far
Have I wired it incorrectly, or did I just have bad luck and end up with 2 busted chips?
Thanks for your help
