hi , this forum is probably a bit technical for my basic/ stupid questions. but i am going to ask one anyway. i have been trying to turn on lights with a 6A transistor. i can get it to work with a small load , but when i try with a bigger load they keep shorting the collecter / emitter leads and staying on when i disconnect base . i came up with the base current [360ma] from data to get 73 ohms r , for the larger load. .for the smaller load , i just pulled a 8k1 resistor out and it worked . what am i doing wrong..i have posted a crude drawing of cirquit which = 1000 words....thanks in advance..
