I connected the IR Repeater circuit part by part but:
1) The Led that must be off for testing was on with no input ( Why is that?)
2) The oscillator has no clear signal on the screan ( I connected it on the 2.2k resistor), but when I point the ir signal at the photodiode as I get closer to it the amplitude became larger.
3) I know that the function of the photodiode is to convert ir signal to current in order to deal with it in an electronic way rather than electromagnetic way, but , on the hand when I tryed to measure the current that is passing through 3.3k resistor , there was a very small reading (0.006mA) after pointing the ir signal , is that true? or does this indicates that the photodiode does not work properly? How can I test a photodiode?
Please Answer ASAP, I need to try your suggestions.
