I have a WS2812B strip which, I guess, I ruined it. I connected a 12V adaptor (by mistake) to the strip.
I have a multimeter and when I check the +5v/GND end terminals of the strip, the meter lights up. But when I check the DIN end terminals, the meter doesn't light up. Can someone please help me understand my questions below ?
- Does this mean the DIN strip blew off ?
- I connected a high voltage to the +5V/GND which works fine. How did I end up blowing the DIN strip ?
- Will any part of the wire still work or should I buy a new one ?
So, I cut up a part of the strip and tried checking. Only a part of the lights glow good while others are glowing low or not at all.
