LED Segment Repair
In this tutorial we are going to show you how to quickly and easily replace a dead series segment in the centre of a LED ribbon.
LED Ribbons are made up of sections of series circuits connected to each other by a parallel circuit. Occasionally a resistor or LED emitter in one of the series circuits gets physically knocked off leaving you with a section of your ribbon that no longer works properly. The section could be completely dead if it is a single colour circuit, or it could be mixing incorrect colours if it is a multi-colour circuit.
Thankfully there is a simple solution to this issue, we will simply cut out the bad segment and replace it with a working segment.
