Light stuck on
« on: December 15, 2017, 10:21:29 AM »
Hello, this is my first year doing an RGB display and I noticed one light was stuck on red after turning off my display. It will change colors when it should it just goes back to red when it should be off. Is this what happens when I pixel goes bad? I have unplugged the pixel to see if that will reset it but no luck.
 Thanks for your help

Sounds like pixel is remembering the last known data packet color it was sent. Does it happen at the first pixel in a string, last, or random one in the middle?

I've got one, too. Its on my mega tree and too high to replace. I'll just live with it until tear-down.

It is definitely a bad pixel and will need to be replaced. If it was "killing" the pixels after it, I would be pulling out a ladder.
