I built a thermometer with an lm35 and an lm3914, but when I switch it to dot mode, the bottom led is always (dimly) lit. I tried grounding pin 9 when in dot mode, but then the second to top led lights up, too. I tried capacitors between pin 9 and ground, but the second to top led lights up and then fades out.
