Hi everyone,

I just finished (actually started :p) my 5*24 LED array and I encountered a problem. It seems that only the cathodes' rows are working. To be clear, as there's 24 rows of LEDS and the first one is #0, we can see that rows #0, #2, #4... and #22 don't work at all.

To be sure, I double check the wiring on the board and on the array and it seems OK. Also I test the array with ledarray test compile file, so I'm pretty sure that all the LEDs should be working.

Any Ideas?

thanks for your answers
