Hello everyone! I just got home from trouble shooting some issues with the LEDs on Pierre's umbrella hat. I was able to get them all working last night and today they would not. No matter what I tried I had a problem. The video below is me testing at home first. I even burned one of my umbrella hat panels and I had to take the whole thing apart. I had soldered all of my LEDs without any problems on the vinyl and last night had the iron to close to plastic and it melted a small dot. I had been soo careful when i did my poncho and Pierre's. No matter how much you plan something can always go wrong. I was so frustrated that I needed to get out of the house and get help from the guys at Hive76. They are a great group of very smart guys there!
What I found funny was that they too were confused and they know a lot more than I do.
I did what they said and started disconnecting the strips to get to the problem.
Well this took so much of my time that i will post the ponchos tomorrow,
Im tired and I have to go to work. One thing that I wanted to say was that I had the umbrella hat
was all done and I had to compleately take it apart. I will put it back together Thursday .
The only way to find out what was wrong was to go through strip by strip. Thank God that the hat
