I am absolute beginner and I purchased SN74HC08 Quad 2 input AND gate . Hoping it will work as expected I connected it to the breadboard and used the 1A and 1B inputs connected to a push button and the 1Y output connected to a LED with a 220ohm resistor to the ground. The Vcc and GND are connected properly using Arduino 5V and GND pins. But when I power the circuit the LED is always high. it doesn't seem to care about the inputs. When I read the datasheet and some articles, they say that all unused pins must be either Vcc or GND. I did as per the instructions but still the gate wont work. I finally decided to post this question on SO.
If you see the attached image the Vcc on the IC is not connected and neither are the 1A and 1B inputs. all other pins are connected to Vcc and GND pin to ground. but the LED is still on.
Please help me I confused as to why this doesn't work. Did I damage the IC??
