# Arduino / Love-O-Meter : wrong temperature read when LEDs are on

I tried the Love-O-Meter example given in the Startup kit of Arduino. The example is available here. The temperature sensor is the TMP36 given with the kit.

If the three LEDs are off (e.g. when writing LOW in the code, comment the corresponding lines or unplug them), there is no problem: the real temperature in the room is given and the sensor gives a value around 150.

However, if one or more LEDs are on, then the temperature increases to around 10°C for each LED (the sensor gives 215 when the three LEDS are on).

The conversion from the sensor value to the temperature works well. Also, I measure a correct voltage by using a multimeter.

Any idea?
