CCR Technical Question....


Recommended Posts

Just received my CCR's this weekend and started testing each one to make sure they all worked.

Well...the very first one out of the box had a section that quit working after I rolled it out. I set it aside and coninued to test the others.

After I was done, I tested the first one again...and now no "dead" section.

Any idea what would cause this?
Can it reset itself in some way?
Or perhaps a bad connection and it "reconnected"?

When I was dealing with these problems, someone suggested that I heat up all the surface mount solder connections as that might be the problem. I connected one of the failed sections to a controller then heated up each connection then tested for repair. This hasn't worked on any of the failed pixels, so I don't think the problem is with bad solder joints.


Thanks Jeff...

In my case it was ALL colors not working in a section, though I don't remember how large that section was but certainly more than the three LED's (maybe as many as 9 or 12)...so initially I had thought that I had perhaps cracked or broke one of the solder joints by accident.

I will run it for a longer period tonight and see what happens.
