Bad Pixel?

Thoughts. Is this a bad pixel?  Those strips are 120, 60 up and down. It is failed about 40 on the up side (pixel 40 of 120) that stip will not turn off.  If so which pixel should I change. The last lit on or the first dark or both?

Does the feed from the controller go to the one that has the white lights, or to the dark strip?

I'm thinking that it may not be a bad pixel.  At least I would be looking elsewhere before going at it with a pair of cutters.  A bad pixel would work up to it, then everything beyond would mess up.

To find out for sure: try feeding a known good signal to the strip, possibly from a neighboring strips.  (You could do this at the controller.)  If the strip comes alive, you know it isn't that strip.

Check your power connection. I had a couple of props including my pixel tree freezes on all white. Ended up being a loose wire. When I assembled my controllers it was 90 degrees out. When I put everything up I doubled checked to make sure all connections were tight. It's now zero degrees and the same thing happened. As a matter of fact the positive connection to the board was almost out of the terminal. I tightened it and so far so good. The weather creates expansion and contraction and that's why the connections were loose.
