Electronics Questions / Raspberry Pi wiring simple LED
« on: February 28, 2017, 10:22:58 PM »
I'm completely new to hardware in general. I just got a raspberry pi and was messing around trying to get an LED to light up.

I have everything wired like the picture below. I am using a 330ohm resister, which I believe is bigger therefore ok then what is required.

also (sorry this is my first time using any program to draw a circuit)

The program runs successfully, but no light comes on. I know the LED is good as I've tested it on the arduino. Anybody care to explain my wiring fault?
