Trouble with Trinket

by mkirk8390 on Fri Apr 10, 2020 5:45 pm

I'm a new educator to all this and I'm trying to connect a trinket to an LED ring. I've soldered the Ground, USB and Data 0 contacts and as soon as the circuit is made, the green light on the trinket goes out. Is this supposed to happen? Any help is appreciated.

Hello mkirk8390,

Is there any reason you did not solder to the Trinket's 5v pin instead of the USB pin?
