I have a couple of general questions regards running LED's off a digital port.
1. I hooked up a 3V LED to the signal and ground pins on D6 on my v4 earlier today, made a little digital on, sleep 5 seconds, digital off script to test it but all it would do is very quickly flash once. I changed it over to port D12 and it worked fine. Any reason why D6 didn't work? The port is fine as I tested it with a servo
. I was just wondering if it's because D6 is also a UART port as well and this may have caused the issue.
2. Any ideas if I could power a set of 20, 3v fairy lights off the V4 signal and ground pins? I lent my multi meter out so I can't test the amp output of the LED's. They normally run off two 1.5v AA batteries. Could 20 bulbs be too much?
