So I bought the below featured kit to add figures to my Path of the Dead.
The plexiglass mounting board also supports 5mm LED's so I picked up a few green ones to light up the figures.
The raw LED's I received (from Pinbits) also came with resistors.
I tried hooking up the LED to a random GI bulb and it worked fine.
(I used the resistor with it as well, green banded side to longer leg of LED)
Then when I hooked up the LED to a control lamp that was flashing, I burnt out my LED.
I am not sure how this happened and want to avoid it again if possible.
I have already re-ordered 10 LED's (even though I only burnt out one) from Pinbits just so I have a few more to blow up in testing....
Is there anything special I need to do to wire these up?
I want to wire them to 3 of the 4 POTD Insert Lights (#1, #2, #3).
