running pov board with 4.5V causes problems

by jim123e on Sat Jan 29, 2011 12:36 am

Hi,
I love the kit, however I wanted to make the LEDs brighter. Reading the datasheet, the 2313 can be run off of 5.5V. However when I wire up a 3rd battery to the pack, the 4.5 volts really brightens up the LEDS, but it seems to mess up the code. Any idea on what might be happening?

I solved it, slightly low batteries caused the micro to act strange

the zener diodes drag the reset line low. we specially picked the values for 2xAA
