The main purpose of this paper is to determine the fine spectrum with respect to Goldberg's classification of the operator defined by the lambda matrix over the sequence spaces and c. As a new development, we give the approximate point spectrum, defect spectrum, and compression spectrum of the matrix operator on the sequence spaces and c. Finally, we present a Mercerian theorem. Since the matrix is reduced to a regular matrix depending on the choice of the sequence having certain properties and its spectrum is firstly investigated, our work is new and the results are comprehensive.
