Here is the circuit that I've built on my project board (GL-12)
Here is a schematic:
Note: I'm using BC107B transistors instead of BC547 as they are quite similar.
To test the circuit, I added two diodes (as shown in the schematic,) but instead of blinking alternatively, they glow together, and don't turn off.
I can't seem to understand the problem behind this occurence. When I connect the collector of a transistor to the red clip of DSO138 and the ground to the black clip, I don't see any square waveform of peak voltage 9V. It just stays at about 0V, indicating that the collector is grounded. I don't understand this.
I've looked up online resources as well where people have built the multivibrator in the exact same way, but it has been working perfectly for them.
Can someone try to help me out in this?
