First of all, hi everyone! I'm new in this community and this is going to be my first design as an Electrical Engineer.
I'm getting perfect 12VAC signal with 1khz from this circuit. But when I try regulating this 12VAC to 6VDC 1Amps, I'm having huge voltage drops and regulator doesnt work. I think transistors current limits are not enough. Would

Huh? A 555 is a timer, an LM358 is an opamp. Just use a 0.1uF or 0.01uF. It will be fine.

I want to drive 3 leds with 555 timer, frequency 4Hz.
I drive it with 9V.
The leds are 1.8V@2mA
I afraid it will not work properly.
I will more than happy from u guys to look at it and give your remarks..
Schematic is attached.

I am generating 300us Monostable Pulse through 555 IC with 12V Vcc supply.The frequency is 5Hz. The pulse width is ok but when I see the waveform on the oscilloscope, the pulse shape is not good. The pulse rises to 10V very fast but after that exponentially goes to 11V and while discharging it drops down to 3 V fast but then exponentially discharge

I'm trying my first 555 timer project. I was able to get a single LED to flash, however when I try to setup the two LED to go back and forth, the one "LO" Led always stays dimly lit. The instructions say this means the timer chip is bad, however I've tried about 10 different chips and they all do the same thing.
Another issue I noted is (...)

A laser emits light, so it cannot alarm (think of a torch). The reflected light from a laser can be detected and the breaking or reduction of the received signal can be used to fire up an alarm.
The main problem is at the receiving end. The photo detection device will always saturate, which means that if the suns rays get into it, it will always

You need to add a comparator IC that has a high input impedance to sense the capacitor voltage without loading it down. The output of the comparator can have 4mA as base current to turn on the transistor that drives a relay that needs up to 40mA.
Or use a 555 timer IC to replace your entire circuit.

Choose a 12V relay that is capable of carrying the contact current, the ammeter should tell you this. You have a 12V battery, you need a 555 timer then the only thing to ascertain is the polarity of the LOP signal, is it +12 for good or 0V?

To keep the cost down I would use a 555 timer as a PWM generator for each chain.
For only 20mA per LED chain, from a 24Vdc source, a BJT or a 2N7000 MOSFET would be suitable.
The frame frequency of the 555 PWM generator could be selected for each LED colour chain.
Lots of simple circuits on the web.

I don't know, if that's the same as many of the 555 timer devices, the 555 responds to a falling input signal 2/3rds below the rail voltage, and the trigger signal has to be shorter than the output signal. I think the 558 is different, it's described as edge-triggered (don't bother even looking at it, it's available but obsolete anyway). (...)

You could use two time-delay relays. No soldering, but lots of money. Now might be a good time to learn to solder! I would look at using a 555 timer and a couple of transistors. They are cheap and plentiful. But if you REALLY don't want to solder, you could use a breadboard.

I suspect the problem is the switch contacts 'bouncing'. I think what you are seeing is the time interval starting as soon as the switch is opened not when it is closed. If the switch is held closed, the timer will not run (as you observed) but when a normal switch is pushed the contacts open and close a few times as they collide and bounce off ea

The datasheet for a 555 says, " The trigger input voltage must return to be high at least 10us before the end of the timing interval".
Then you must capacitive-couple the trigger pulse to pin 2 so that the trigger pulse duration is shorter than the timer output pulse duration.
This Applications Note shows how to do it:

Nikica if you want a precise timer, a 555 relies on stable supply voltage, a trimpot and very expensive large capacitors with very low leakage., making this design impractical due to the fact that most big caps have a self leakage in this range of time and going to an ultracap with long leakage time constants gets more expensive.

The attached ESR meter with 555 was built by me. This is working fine but only the meter shows FSD when leads are open. If the leads are shorted or a capacitor is connected between the leads then the meter scale moves down to 2v on a 10v scale. Is this behaviour correct. Do we have to read in reverse order since most of the meters move to lower

Multisim is a schematic simulator and NOT a programming language. But you can introduce delays using RLC components or timer chips like 555 or 4538 cmos. These are not options but you have to actually connect up the components to implement your delay.
