I'm kind of new here. I've been roaming around the forum for a while trying to figure out how to finish up this circuit I'm building and really need some help.
I'm trying to build a blinking LED circuit using 39 5mm yellow 2Vf 20mA LEDs, pn2222A transistors, and a 9V battery. I have the LEDs wired in 2 parallel strings(one string containing 12 LEDs and one containing 27 LEDs). From what I've learned so far, It would've been best for me to wire them in strings of 3-4 with each string having its own resistor, but I have them wired, soldered, and held in place already so I prefer not to dismantle everything and start over.
This is what I have so far:
Sorry, part of the post is missing for some reason. Allow me to start over.
I'm working on an art piece that contains a spinning object which represents planet Earth. I'd like to add lights to the spinning earth and making the lights battery powered is best. I can't use a slip-ring to run power to everything because a slip-ring won't fit. The spinning Earth as a 8" diameter. I should be able to install all the components (battery, lights, transistors, capacitors, resistors, etc.) to the spinning object, as long as the overall circuitry is light-weight and simple.
I have resistors ranging from 10-10k ohms, pn2222A transistors, 10 and 100uF capacitors, and AAA & 9V batteries. So is there a better way to make 39 lights blink in a light-weight, remote, and efficient fashion?
Did I mention I'm way out of my comfort zone but really really really need this to work?
