is there a fix to my ambilight 2812B endless malfuncion? Answered
I am using ~170 LEDs (2812b) with a 10A 5V PS. the power is connected to two parts of the strips due to voltage drop that results in a yellowish white color, close to the end of the strip.
I also added a 1000uF 6.3V Cap on the PS and a 470ohm Resistor on the Din starting point. GND connected to the Arduino and using Ambibox software.
after a few weeks of usage and especially when turned on, the LEDs flicker or stuck on a certain color up until led (x). few minutes later it overcome whatever problem it had and works regularly. Alas, on white color (guess when it consume the max current) it start to flick again mostly on this led(x) again.
of course, I replaced led(x) and led(x-1), enjoy a few weeks of the Ambilight project working perfectly and then another led(y) want my attention and again and again....
should I replace the whole strip? am I using too much current? is it a known issue?or there is a galaxy where these leds replacement slaving don't occur.
thanks in advance
