Arduino Mega 2560 with WS2811 LEDs

Hello,

I am presently working on a project where I have programmed my Arduino Mega with the FastLED library using the 12V WS2811 programmable LEDs. I was able to successfully program a simple Rainbow effect which was working fine. For some reason now after disconnecting everything and reconnecting it is not working. I tried to upload the code to the arduino again and even tried designating a different Pin number and for some reason the lights only stay on a constant white(red,green,blue lit up as though it is being directly powered from the power source). Any ideas or tips would be greatly appreciated.

Everything is working fine with the Arduino from what I can see.

Problem solved, evidently the Date wire became loose and broke contact with the LED strip.
