Check the voltage you are putting into these to ensure your power supply is providing the correct voltage. Are these 12vdc or 5vdc pixels

Tried lowering the voltage to 11.5v about same time for fault to occur so kinds rules out heating to burning off more power then needed I have each string only 50 pixels long and have added a earth on the end of the run still no fix
