To troubleshoot, try the following steps:1) Confirm that your power supply’s voltage and current rating are compatible with your LED strip. 2) Confirm that your power supply is working correctly. 3) Check and isolate other accessories on the same circuit. 4) Check for any visible loose connections.
If half a strand is working and the other half is not, you probably have a loose or broken bulb. Start with the first unlit bulb and work your way down, wiggling them to check for looseness. If it flickers, that’s your cue to replace it.
You can, but we wouldn’t recommend it. By cutting an LED strip light anywhere other than the designated cutting point, you run the risk of damaging the components on the strip itself, as well as the circuit board. This may ultimately result in the strip light not working.
A: If the LED light strip you purchased can be cut, the remaining part that you have cut off cannot be used anymore. If you want to reconnect them after cutting, you must use an additional 4 pin connector to reconnect.
LEDs have an unbelievably long expected life-span, compared to both incandescent and fluorescent lights. With an average life-expectancy of some 50,000 hours, LED strip lights will still be burning bright in 17 years’ time, long after their traditional counterparts will have expired.
Due to their design, LED Strip Lights will continue to work even after they have been cut. This is because their circuit is completely closed at each cutting point. If you are removing a section from the end of your strip light, always make sure you are cutting it at the end away from the connector.
LED strip lights are designed to be easy to cut apart with a pair of scissors. Each LED has a pair of copper dots at the end. As long as you cut between the dots, all of the LEDs will work.
Yes, LED lights are ideal for leaving on for long periods of time due to their low power usage and very low heat output. They are more suited to use as a night light/ background accent light in general. 23 of 25 found this helpful.
