Hello all,
I have purchased about 15 5050 dumb strips off ebay and have discovered that about half of them the green terminal is actually blue and vise-versa. Anyone run into this. No I know why everyone on the forum say test, test and then re-test.
Thanks in advance,
Mark

This is a very common occurance with lights from China, It appears that cable colours dont seem to be of great importance, So as you have stated, Test, test and test again. Usually its not that hard to work out if you take the time to make sure.

I test all my dumb strips with a 9V battery just put the + on + & then the other wires to see what color.
