Cant get other colours of LEDs
« on: November 21, 2021, 07:30:44 PM »
im usign the Crystal Focus 10 bored and WS2812B LEDs which i have changed from RGB to GRB, neither have worked. when i activate the blade i get either Red if its set to RGB or Green if its set to GRB. if i try to do lock up i get red flash or green, respectivly. i have a 330ohm on the data pin and a 100uf across the power and ground pins of the strips. different soundfonts dont chagne the colour. but on blade that are supposed to be blue the blade does change from red to amber or if its GRB then green to yellow ish. anyideas?

You will need to provide much more information if you want any help.   Confused on the capacitor comment…good on the data like resistor, but shouldn’t need any external capacitors for the pixel blade.  And you are correct that the font will have no effect on your colors.  Could be confit…did you try spectrum and dial through the full color wheel?
