I have a Vishay TSSP77038 IR receiver that I would like to read the output of. It is connected as shown in the picture - Vs to 5V, GND to GND and the output to a pin on the Arduino.
My problem is that the reading is constantly low (it is active low so says it is receiving a IR signal), even when i completely cover the sensor or I am in a dark room. Can someone please tell help? Thanks a lot in advance :)
