View Full Version : It won't stop blinking - the horror

I ran a simple program with PBasic. The problem is I can't make it stop. It is a simple loop program.

I tried:

I closing the PBasic program.

I disconnected the power supply and reconnected.

Pressed and held reset button.

Its got a mind of its own. Is it something simple I am not doing?

иииииииииии The stamp will run the program in its EEProm immediately on power up. If you want to stop a program. Run the following command only in your code.
' {$STAMP BS2}
' {$PBASIC 2.5}

you should really take a look at this pdf Instead of jumping into programming the stamp Its very informative and great for beginners. It should answer most of your questions

To amplify what Stephen was telling you, when you click on the Run button in the editor you program gets compiled and downloaded to the BASIC Stamp -- it can't run anwhere else. What this means is that any program that was there gets overwritten, and that program will stay in place until you deliberately replace it.
