Can I get a gut check here? Before I climb up 15 feet to pull the strip down, can anyone offer an educated guess as to why my strip would be doing this:
300 pixel strip, 5v 15a power supply running FastLED on a Photon Particle. It lights up the first 200 or so with whatever pattern or color I throw at it, then ~24 are just dead, then the rest light up however they feel like it.
I’m pretty confident it’s not the sketch. Maybe it’s a power issue? If it were a bad connection in the strip, is there any explanation for it still lighting up those on the far end like that? (first pixel is on the far right, not pictured). I’ve got a capacitor on the circuit and followed best practices. I’d hate to have to pull out a ladder only to find it was something at ground level I could have fixed.
