After some minutes, the strip shutdown randomly. No care about what sketch I load on it.It shuts down randomly.
ESP 32 can directly work with the LED. I have also used the same setup. I did not even required a resistor between DIN and Esp32 pin.
do note that I was using only 12 LED. If you plan to use more then your mileage may vary
@Paul__B ESP 32 can directly work with the LED . I have also used the same setup . I did not even required a resistor between DIN and Esp32 pin.do note that i was using only 12 LED . If you plan to use more then your mileage may varyBTW how are you able to post pic ? I can only post pics as an attachment.I was even able to power The led with 3.3v thus i did not require any logic level conversion.
Can you tell me exactly after how much time the leds are shutting down ?like are they shutting down after 10 min ? or 5 min ? or after an hour ?Please tell me the exact time Can you also see the the voltage across the vcc and gnd of the strip ? What is your Serial monitor saying ? Is this a brownout problem ?Also which library are you using ? Neopixel library or FASTLED library?
Fastled.I don't have an exact time since sometimes it happena after 10 minutes, sometimes after an hours, sometimes after 30 minutes, it's completely random.When the lights turn off, I can simply turn on and they turn on without problem, but I don't understand why they automatically turn off.
While this may become a problem when the levels at the input are critically marginal and the pixels are not responding to every command, it is more likely that someone has forgotten to define num_LEDs.
Do check your power supply . I think you are getting less current than required. Are you using also using wifi capability of esp ? cuz during using wifi esp does draw more current than in normal mode? also at what brightness are you using the led strip as fully bright white colour can draw upto 60mA ? thus use 40% -50% brightness. ? at that brightness led consume upto 20 mA -30 mA.I think maybe you have a problem with your power supply .just post your code also . maybe there is a problem there also.
Can it be a problem that I'm not using anyresistance for the Digital PIN?
The resistor is there for protection. A strip will work without it but might be damaged if it is being fed a signal when while it is unpowered. That is if you turn on your Arduino before your 10A power supply, something that is easy to do.Please read this:-How to use this forumIt will tell you how to post code so everyone can see it. We don't like going off site to look at code.
Code was too long for the forum
You sure of that? Did you read how to attach code as an attachment?If the code is too long that could be your problem. Snippets are useless, it is not worth looking at.No idea what is wrong with so little real information.
bumping thread in the hope of help
