Re: This program doesn't work :(

But the led don't blink like i want so what is the problem?
Sorry man, but you will not get a lot of answers with that description.

You say the LED isn't blinking like what you want, but what is it blinking? How is it blinking?

Describe the situation a bit more and we will try to help you.

Re: How many LEDs can be driven individually?

Hi! I'm pretty unsure about what you're asking for. Basically and theorically , you can drive one LED per GPIO output. RPi3 and RPi1 haven't the same number of outputs, you don't tell the which one you have. However, you shouldn't draw more than 16mA per pin and 50mA on the overall . If you do, you ...

You can achieve that very easily with Python by example. However you still need an external source of current

Re: Understanding Ground Connections

Hi The issue you're encountering is senseless. My understanding was that the ground connection doesn't matter as long as there is a ground. You're right about that. You may check all your connections and try with a very simple led / resistor couple. If the problem persists, your RPI is maybe damaged?

Re: Speaker help

Hi!
what Volt amp and which speaker WATT
AFAIK an amp hasn't voltage characteristics.
A real amp is powered by an external power source.

The main question is: what are your needs? 2W? 20W?

Re: Using old mechanical push buttons

Hi!

Welcome to the Raspberry world!

I think you should desolder all old cables and make it cleaner.
You would also know how connections work using a multimeter for example.

Good luck

There are communication pins (these are GPIO), 5V pins (what you describe) and 3.3V pins. About GPIO pins, used to communicate with other devices, you shouldn't d...

Re: won't show on screen

It's very probably SD Card related. If not, your RPi may be broken?

What is the SD Card model?

Re: Garmin GPS 15xH -W on Raspberry PI 3

I think you'd have a look at the following datasheet:

http://static.garmincdn.com/pumac/GPS15 ... ations.pdf

There's a pin definition on page 6.

It seems like your GPS module uses RS-232 serial communication standard.

I'd still ground OE rather than pulling it HIGH because you've left QS1 & QS2 as NC. Okay, thank you for the tip.

I'd connect Pin#15 (Output enable) to GND since you're not daisy chaining shift registers, but otherwise that part looks OK. Since it's not using the UART I'd avoid using GPIO 14 & 15 on your Raspberry. Thank you DougieLawson. I updated my above post with a more classic schema style and I changed t...
