555 timer ciruit errors


New Member
I have set up a 555 Timer circuit on my breadboard following this diagram.

These are the values I use:

R1: 1k

R2: 1k

C: 0.1uf

Vcc: 9V

The only problem is, on pin 5, I have a 0.001uf capacitor. When I connect the circuit, the led I have on pin 3 (normally I have an 8 ohm speaker but I wanted to see if any current was being produced) doesn't light up. Here is a picture of my breadboard. (Sorry for the horrible wiring... And the extremely large image)

The bigger capacitor is 0.1uf and the smaller is 0.001uf. Also, wire colors don't mean a thing (again... sorry).

Thanks in advance for your help.
