I'm afraid I have a rudimentary stupid question but here it goes...I have a circuit which produces a signal through a series of NOR gates. That signal, I input in a 2n2222 BJT to drive an LED. When I do so, the voltage of the gate drops to below 1V indicating a current leak. When I disconnect the BJT the voltage of the gate is 5V. I'm afraid there's something I'm missing about these guys, any help?
PS: In the same manner, if I connect an IRLZ44N MOSFET, I have no problem. So what's the obvious thing I'm missing here? haha
