A question about this product: The LEDs on this sensor are supposed to output visible white light - is that correct? It is just that I have now tested two of them using the circuit setup on your website and running the sample code that you have supplied, and the leds do not output any visible light. I have tested this with more than one Arduino Uno, and have tested the circuit with other colour sensors of a similar type that I bought from another company.

Hi Seven.

Thanks for your message. Perhaps share a photo of your circuit, so we can see where the wires are coming from/going to?

FYI, the LEDs are turned on and off with code, not automatically.
