the board serial port does not seem to pop up when i connect it to the PC.
When I power via usb the board turns on but as soon as the led strip attavhed to it turns on the leds are reddish like all channels don't get fed proper power and i think the board freezes.
Can I fix this board easilly? what is the cause? what burned out?
Can i avoid this, by wiring the power to the leds separate from the board and solder that power lead to a board input instead of going through the usb?
cause :confused: :
I was trying to gauge how much I can draw with 120 leds, with the usb power on 1A power bank. It worked for a few minutes then died. :(
