Hi Everyone.

I have made a window frame display out of 25mm conduit. Cut 4 lengths of pixel strips for each side and connected with corner snap connectors. 3 of the sides work fine and run a pattern but the last section is just white and won't do any other colour or pattern.

I've checked the connections and all look fine. Can anyone help with what might be the issue?

TIA

Sounds like you have power to the last strip but no data. Double check that connection. If that's not it, check the last strip section separately. It will tell you if the first pixel is bad or not. If it works, it could be the last pixel of the previous strip is bad and not sending data.

Double check that you have the right number of pixels assigned as well.

Also check you are feeding data to the correct end of the strip - caught me out this past weekend.
