I am very new at electronics, I am starting small with a tutorial I found on sparksfun, and I'm trying to learn how to read a schematic and put it on a breadboard.
Well, I hooked up power to the board. I read the between 14.5-15.36 volts that the 9v wall wart is putting out.
Then I successfully placed a 5v voltage regulator into the circuit. And the voltage does drop on the other side of the voltage regulator.
The problem comes with a resistor. I placed both a 330ohm, and a 220ohm resistor on the other side of the 5v regulator, but nothing changes.
If I remove the regulator then I see voltage drops down to 12ish with both resistors.
What am I doing wrong?
PS I am trying to find a camera so I can take a picture of the breadboard
