Hi nadnerb,nadnerb wrote:It's hard to tell if its right because each strand of LEDs have different wiring layouts. Have you tried swapping your data and clock? When you touch the output ends, do the LEDs come on as the correct static colour?bccornfo wrote:Hi nadnerb,
I've checked all connections and they seem to be solid. On the LED's I have +5v connected to my power supply, along with Ground. The Pi is also connected to this power supply. Then I have Clock and Data connected to the Pi as per http://boblight.googlecode.com/svn/wiki/diagram.png. I also have connected the Ground to the Pi, fifth pin on the left, too like you suggested. Is this correct?
I'm not really getting erratic behaviour, my lights just don't turn on. Unless the I touch the Clock and Data cables at the output end of the LED's.
By touch the Clock and Data cables I mean I literally touch them with my fingers.
After playing around swapping the Clock and Data, and re-wiring it seems one of the cables i purchased had was damaged causing this flashing and strange behaviour. Now all is working okay. Thank you for you help =)
