Hi, I have LS4P-WLED-SY and WS2811, but as soon as I plug in the strip. It starts reseting immediately, doesn't lose any settings tho. ThanksT
I am having the same issue with the WLED firmware. I have 10A power source, have tested both SK6812 RGBW and WS2812B 60/m 5m 5v stips with the same issue. Max watts I can pull throught the LS4P-WLED is 4A before it restarts, usually around 3A it becomes unstable. What to do?
OK I found a problem with my controller, it was the voltage. The controller will not work if it is lower than 5V and with 5V power supply pretty much any LED strip will create enough drop to take it below 5v. So you'll have to use power injection in which case using 16A controller doesn't really make any sense as you'll have to bypass it anyway, and the PSU would have to be providing a bit over 5v to factor the residual voltage drop. Probably this controller is not the best for 5V strips like WS2812B as you'll likely have voltage issues. I was only able to run 10 LED out of 144 on a single strip, and when I tunes the power supply to max 6V I could almost do 2M with 288 LEDs using 2-point power injection, but it is still shuts off after some time so I might have to stick with esp32 as I'll have to run a lot of power cables anyway.
It should be much easier with 12v strips as they won't go below 5V and you might actually power it with just the controller which is kind of the whole idea of buying a high-power controller. I'll try those when they arrive.
having the exact same problem. just bought 2 LS4P-WLED-SY 16A WLED controllers for WS2812B strips and it just doesn't work for me. Tried with 4 different strips (144 and 60 LEDs) and 2 separate 5V power supplies, same stuff. Tried with and without injecting power to LEDs bypassing the controller, the only difference is that when it is injected the controller clicks only once and turns off for good while without injecting it keeps clicking and resetting. The very same LED strips with same PSUs work just fine with a ESP32 board. Any ideas??? seems like the controllers might be simply faulty, but 2 at the same time plus other people having same issues?!...
had something similar: maybe you need to connect power not through the controller, but separately. I think this blinking is a sign, that you are drawing too much power.
