How To Fix The Strip After Cutting
If you need to reconnect the LED strip after cutting, you need an additional 4-pin connector. Usually, this product is not included in the LED light strip set and must be purchased separately.
Step 1. Buy a suitable 4Pin connector
There are many light connector products, so you need to choose the right one according to the type of light strip. If your light strip has a width of 10mm, the 4Pin connector you choose must fit 10mm. If your light strip has a width of 8 mm and the connector you bought is 10 mm, it will not work.
Step 2. Open the connector
If the connector has a cover, the connector must be opened on the side.
Step 3. Put the light strip into the connector
Put the two cut ends of the LED strip into the fixing clip of the connector. At this point, you should follow the instructions in the picture to check if they are reversed.
Step 4. Cover the connector
After placing the light bar, close the cover of the connector, and try to check whether the light bar is normally lit after connecting the power supply. If the connected parts cannot light up normally, try to adjust the connection point between the connector and the light strip.
Generally, it is troublesome to reconnect the strips after cutting. Not only must you purchase additional connectors, but any incorrect operation may render the strip unusable. Therefore, it is best to ensure that the required length is correct and to avoid waste.
How To Troubleshoot LED Strip Problems
LED strips come in various sizes, densities, and color qualities, but what they have in common is that at some point, you may encounter difficulties that make them inoperable. Some of the most common causes and solutions for LED strip problems are discussed.
Note: Low-voltage DC electronic equipment is generally considered safe and has a relatively high risk of electric shock. However, when possible, we strongly recommend that you turn off or unplug the power supply before testing or adjusting any LED strips or accessories.
Please note that in some of the troubleshooting steps we suggest below, you need to plug in and power on to complete the test. If you are not sure how to perform these tests safely, please be careful and seek the advice of qualified personnel.
The LED strip does not light up at all
To troubleshoot, try the following steps:
1) Confirm that the voltage and current ratings of the power supply are compatible with your LED strips.
For example, if your power supply is 12V DC, it cannot be used with 24V LED strips. Mark at the connection point of the bar.
2) Confirm that your power supply is working properly.
A quick test with a multimeter to verify the voltage between the two output wires, or the voltage between the internal plug of the DC plug and the external barrel, should indicate a voltage difference. The power supply may be malfunctioning.
Please note that this test must be powered on.
3) Check and isolate other accessories on the same circuit.
Replace any optional dimmers and controllers from the circuit and determine if the LED strip can be lit without using additional accessories. If the LED light bar is working properly, it indicates that there is a problem with the dimmer or controller or the connection with these accessories.
Please note that this test must be powered on.
Needless to say, but don't connect the low voltage DC (such as 12V / 24V) LED strip directly to the socket of the power supply voltage (such as 120V / 240V)
4) Check if there is any visible loose connection
Make sure that all connectors and wires are in place and not dropped. Try to tighten the screws on the DC adapter, and then reinsert the LED strip into the solderless connector. This is a common point of failure.
If you have a multimeter, test the short-circuit at each point in the circuit and the voltage difference between the short-circuited (grounded) wires/terminals. Start from the DC output of the power supply, and then enter the LED light bar. If there is no voltage difference, the LED light strip cannot be supplied with power due to the fault before the fault can even reach the part of the LED light strip.
5) Check if there is an obvious short circuit
Especially if you are soldering your own wires instead of using solderless accessories, you may inadvertently cause a short circuit due to contact between the segment wire and the short-circuit wire.
Perform a quick visual inspection of the entire LED strip connection and ensure that the wires are sufficiently separated.
This type of short circuit is especially likely to occur when using a multi-channel strip light (such as a 5-color LED strip with 6 connection points).
6) Check if there is a short circuit
If no visible short circuit is found after visual inspection, it may be necessary to check whether there is an invisible short circuit next. The conversion method for conducting the test is to use the multimeter again.
If there is no short circuit, the multimeter should indicate infinite resistance. If it indicates any resistance value, it indicates that there is a short circuit.
If there is a short circuit, please disconnect all accessories and wires, and confirm whether the short circuit on the LED light bar still exists. If so, it indicates that there is a problem with the LED strip.
LED light strips are usually composed of two copper layers, and a thin insulating layer replaces the two copper layers. In some cases, if the scissors cannot make a clean cut, the insulating layer may fail at the cutting point, causing a short circuit.
If a short circuit is found on the LED strip segment, but no obvious short circuit is found, please try to remove the cutting line segment that may be damaged in the last 1-2 inches of the separated LED strip. The scissors to ensure clean cutting, because the excess blunt scissors may "squeeze" the copper and insulation layer, causing a short circuit.
