Re: MP3 Trigger/Decoder Issues

Update: I believe the problem was actually the micro SD card. I found this completely by accident, switched out the SD card and now the first version at least is up and running. If anyone is trying to put together something similar, version 1 above seems to work well again with the circuit as descri...

MP3 Trigger/Decoder Issues

I'm working on a project involving an MP3 player, an Arduino Nano, and switch and am having a strange issue with the MP3 player. I'm wondering if anyone has encountered this and might have a solution. So far I've made two versions and both have had a similar problem. Version 1: Version 1 uses the Qw...

Re: Tilt Switch and Transistor without Microcontroller

Thank you jremington, this is helpful.

Also thank you DanV. I ended up just using the tilt switch without a transistor because I put the project together before I saw the last response. So far it is working well.

Re: Tilt Switch and Transistor without Microcontroller

Hi DanV, Thanks for the suggestion and response, I appreciate it. Originally, I was planning to just use the tilt switch and batteries, but then I noticed that the original switch I had was only rated for 20 mA (https://tinkersphere.com/sensors/750-tilt-switch.html) and my LED array uses 160 mA. I r...

Tilt Switch and Transistor without Microcontroller

Hello, I am at a beginner level with circuits and have a basic question I'm having trouble finding an answer to related to a project I'm working on. I'm making a very small sculptural object that is basically a Lightbox that I want to turn on when tilted in one direction. Right now I have an ATTINY8...
