I'm not sure if this is something that has been asked before, I tried searching the forum but didn't find anything relating to my issue. This is my second LED project, so I'm still fairly new to this world.
I currently have an LED strip WS2812b at 60LEDS/meter, at about 3-3.5 meters in total. I have an ESP8266 controlling it, and the two share a 5v 12a power supply.
Everything seems to work - it changes color, effects work, and is overall pretty responsive even when I use commands via Google Home.
The issue I'm running into is that the entire strip will randomly turn to solid orange. At first I thought it was randomly turning on when it's off, but it seems to be doing that when it's a different color and/or effect.
After doing some research, it looks like solid orange is the default behavior (which means the device is getting reset somehow). I've read that some settings can be tweaked in the WLED configuration, but I couldn't find anything that would cause the reset. I've checked various timers and they're all disabled. I thought it could be a power issue even though I'm not running the lights past 50% but neither increasing nor decreasing the brightness has any effect. This also happens when the strip is completely off.
Any and all feedback is appreciated (this is my first post, so please excuse me if this isn't the right place to post this).
Thanks so much!
