Cool White 5630 LED Strip starts flashing/ cutting out after solder? Answered
I'm trying to make an LED studio light out of a 5630 5m led strip. I tested the strip before cutting and it works perfectly.
I've the strip into lenghts of 6 sections of 3 leds, placing them parallel. I'm soldering all the positive nodes to a wire on the left side and the negatives to a wire on the right. I'm testing it after soldering every section. It works perfectly until I reach the 12th section (out of 17), then it starts flickering and shutting off and on.
I'm really not sure what's going on?
The power source is a 12v 2a DC switching adapter, the same one I used before (and for other led projects)
