Works when button not pressed

Just finished building my tv-b-gone. When I tested it, it worked... but only when the button was up?

Any idea where I should start debugging?


Thanks

"Press the button once. Don't hold the button down! It will just keep resetting itself. The codes start to transmit once you release the button."

Oh, you mean I should have RTFM?

Now I feel like an idiot.

Thanks,
