I have been working with my ninth PB and have run into a problem. The controller started behaving erratically and several attempts to reset and start over have failed. The initial weirdness was that it was ignoring the brightness settings and just going whole hog on intensity which caused the input voltage to droop. I am using an HP current limited power supply set to 1 amp and driving 512 WS1812B lights.
I’m getting a message that says “The controller has restarted from repeated errors and has loaded fail-safe settings. Proceed with caution- using this interface may persist fail-safe settings”.
It sounds pretty dire and I am clueless as to what caution means in this case. Is at a bad PB or am I being bad?
