I used for two months a 95 LED strup (60 led per meter cutted) WS2812B 5V on my ESP8266
This was my setup.
after some months I wasn’t able to control the led anymore. I tried everything, cutting the first led, the second one, the third one. The led strip was dead, only some leds lighted up and every others shutdown.
I tried everything and the strips seemed dead so I bought another strip and connected only 10 leds to it just to give it a try. same things, the strip was dead.
So I decided to try a different approach with this schema
basically I used a logic converter to up my 3.3V digital pin to 5V. I also added a resitance of 470omh.
nothing, I can’t control the strip. strip light up but leds are out of control, some leds off and some others with some strange color.
power supply seems to be in a good state and connection seems to work well.
should I give up?
what can it be?
