Green LED no Response

by cklavsen on Sun Apr 03, 2016 8:49 pm

Having trouble with this kit, followed tutorial up to the section with testing the green led. No response. Removed led from the board, tested it with another power source and it did not light up. I replaced the green led with a solid red led that I had on hand (and tested before soldering) but still not lighting up once the batteries are in. I did test this led by holding anode to + soldering point, and cathode to - lead of the battery, that worked, however when placed on board nothing. So this leads me to think that there's either a soldering issue or perhaps a bad chip? Or am I missing something else?

Thank you!
