MagPi82 Build an Led Torch wrong wiring?

Thu May 30, 2019 8:30 pm

Just checking ... it looks like the wiring for the LEDs has them directly wired to ground and an Rpi pin.. the resistor is wired to the same row on the breadboard and does not make the current go thru the resistor??

You are correct the connection to the gpio ground pin and that end of the resistor should be in another row of holes on the breadboard.

Our apologies for this. The writer has been notified.

We have added replacement images to the Digital Edition and added Errata (and the new breadboard images) to the issues page.

Thanks for bringing it to our attention.
