Though it looks fancy in the picture, I’m having problems with my LED strip. After a while the data transmission stops in the middle. I previously had troubles with interrupts causing lag down the strip, but this is one specific LED stopping to pass data.
When it happens I can disconnect power and connect it again, after which the LED begins to work properly again. I can take off the aluminum covers. This keeps the strip running properly.
Is this related to heating? Do WS2812 feature some sort of shutdown of the logic circuit to prevent overheat?
