FPP crashes

I'm running a Pi 4B with a Pi Hat M8-PI as a stand alone I've had it playing my play list and everything worked fine until I updated to FPP 6.2. Then it started crashing as soon as the play list starts. So I did a little troubleshooting I disconnected the only two connections I had on it and rebooted it and started the play list. It stays on so I connected one port to lights it stays on but as soon as I connect two ports to lights it crashes . Any help would be appreciated.

It sounds like a problem with the board and not FPP. how many pixels are you connecting? Were you connecting the same number of pixels on the previous version? I have a feeling that the pixels are drawing too much current and the Pi is shutting down. It might be a power supply problem, they do go bad.
If to err is human, I am more human than most people.


That sounds like a power supply issue.  What are you using to power the Pi and the cape


It turned out to be the power supply it was losing voltage one minute I had 4v and then nothing but enough to power the Pi. Thanks for the input
