Just received 1 of these http://www.aliexpress.com/item/8x8-64-LED-Matrix-WS2812-LED-5050-RGB-for-Arduino/32499807095.html in the mail today and am having trouble getting it to work.
Everything is wired correctly and there are no shorts anywhere. They list it as WS2812B LEDs on my board but on close inspection the LEDs look to be WS2811 based on them having 6 connections coming out of each LED.
They do flash on for a quick second when power is applied but after that nothing. I’ve tried changing the chipset and color ordering in FastLed and also tried the adafruit library hoping for at least something to work.
The board was free floating out of it’s anti static packaging when I opened the envelope so I’m afraid something may have been killed by static.
Any thoughts or suggestions would be great.
