Just found another circuit to build! https://youtu.be/D2ekBjrHzYo
I managed to fix it somewhat by adding a small “starter” that sucks charge from one cap on startup. It works! (See image). However, I need to discharge the starter cap (C4) otherwise on the next startup it won’t work in case C4 is still charged. But however I try doing that, it either affects the blink speed of one led, or it stops the whole thing from working. Any ideas? Thanks for your help!
@mdszy Hello! I’ve built a circuit! 😄
It started as a conventional 2-transistor LED blinker, but I added a third LED. It almost works, however it doesn’t start blinking by itself, I need to manually discharge one of the capacitors on start to get it going (see image).
