    This is a great video...Thank you!

    I am trying to fix a friend of mine's Xmas lights. it is a length of 20m of LED's so about 400Led's. The little controlbox that came with it has broken and I just want to light up the LED's for him. I used a bridge rectifier for the 220ac to 200dc then to a 330uF 400V Cap...but the resister just burns on the one AC line into the bridge rectifier...Please could you give advice one what I can do?
