Bad Controller?

Recommended Posts

I have two CCR I haven't used in awhile and was testing them out last night.

The first controller and ribbon works find using the hardware app... lights up using the tests as expected. 

I switched out ribbons and that works as well, lights up as expected.

I switched out controllers and the software sees the controller and I can change settings and whatnot, but it never outputs any lights on either ribbon. 

Any idea what is going on? Anything else I can try?

Blown fuse inside?   Is there 12V to the Ribbon connection? (the third pin is the control data)

Weak PSU (output below 12V ). Have you tried another PSU?  (the board logic runs on 5V which is regulated from the 12V line, so if that line was low, the l(HU) ogic may still function.

Ok, I think it's just he software having issues. I used the Pixel Controller interface and everything is working as expected. Also when I turn on the controller and reset the ribbon shows the test pattern as expected.
