Sounds like you are putting the signal directly into a BJT without a series resistor, which is a no-no.I have a 555 timer outputting a pulsed signal with an amplitude of 4.6V. I am then inputting the signal into a transistor to pulse the LED but when I do this the amplitude drops to .8V. How do I keep the maximum amplitude??
