    Hi guys, haven't been on here in a while. Here is the link to the page I'm referring to.

    http://www.allaboutcircuits.com/vol_4/chpt_3/1.html

    In the paragraph below the first Figure, 2nd line. "Because its saturated, the transistor drops very little voltage between collector and emitter, resulting in an output voltage of (practically) 0 volts."

    Should it be 5 Volts if there is almost no voltage drop?

    Thanks

    This is correct.

    This is correct.

    The power supply stays 5V. I don't see the problem.

    Ugh, sorry... was having a blonde moment. I forgot that the transistor acts as an open if there's no voltage to the base. I think I just got confused.
