I bought exactly what you put on the diagram. 2N2222.

There are diagrams online showing C and E reversed.

But now I get nothing either way. Has turning it round fried something?

Aw screw it. I'm going to remove the new additions tomorrow and just hope I can get up back the way it was. Flash on/off is better than nothing and was even better than I could have hoped for.

This is giving me a headache and each time I change a component it gets messier and messier, and harder to solder the new one in.

I'll maybe try this in another life!!!

That's why I recommended the solderless bread board earlier so you can make changes
on the fly (test the circuit until it is the way you like and then hard wire).

It's kind of tough to make recommendations on a circuit that you are modifying with
the components I showed in my video and to a pre-existing circuit I haven't seen.
I did my best to help with my working circuit in the video.

Added note:
Below is the NPN 2N2222 TO-92

I got it working! :thumbsup:

I just hope I can keep it working while I add more electonics as it's a bit fragile.

Cool. Good job!
Does it have the FADE effect your looking for?

If you decide to make another video of your progress, I'd be interested in seeing it :)

Also, try this:
Add a 10k resistor where shown in the below diagram and a 10uf will also work for the capacitor.
It will change the rate of the fade effect.
All the components are flexible and can be adapted to your needs.

It does work but the fade speed depends on how many LEDs are on. Only if all three are on do they fade out completely. If only one is on, it doesn't fade out completely.

Dare I ask, but would it be complicated to make them also fade in? :?

Although I'm not sure if I will have space to add this, and I really don't want to have to do the whole board again (don't have the components to do it anyway).
