Help with pixels that stay on
« on: November 30, 2016, 04:40:33 AM »
I'm a noob with the F4V2 and have a question. I've got Pixastrings hooked and also a megatree with just plain bullet pixels. After a sequence ends, some of the pixels on the megatree are on. Each time, it's a different set of pixels. There's no pattern to what pixels are on or what color they are. But, the Pixastrings don't do that as far as I can tell. I can't figure out what's going on and don't even know what to google to find an answer.  I'm using xLights for sequencing and running Falcon Player 1.8 on a Pi2. Thoughts?

Check your voltage.  If 12v turn to 11.5 ish.

I had a similar issue with mine that random pixels in a string were turning on red when the pixels where turning off after Red, Green, and Blue channels were identical (i.e. white or grey) before the RGB values fell to 0,0,0.

I turned my voltage down to 11.8 and all was fine.

I will give this a try this weekend. Unfortunately, storm damage took out our megatree, so I need to rebuild it first. :(
