LED stripe burning out?

by dsabella on Wed Aug 26, 2020 8:34 pm

My husband and I bought the "warm white LED weatherproof flexi-strip" lights the end of May 2020 with the intent to install them above and under our cabinets. So far we've installed them above and they looked awesome! However, in prepping to do the second installation I took a better look at what we already did and noticed a section is giving off more of a yellow light, rather than white. The lights impacted all have a burnt appearance and there's a second strip beginning to show the same pattern. Along with cabling purchased from Amazon so we could cut and connect the strips to accommodate corners and such with the cabinets, here are the items we bought from Adafruit to clarify the power supply, etc.:
2 x Warm white LED weatherproof flexi-strip 60 LED 5m[ID:357]
2 x 12V 5A switching power supply[ID:352]
2 x 2.1mm female/male barrel jack extension cable (1.5m / 5 ft) [ID:327]

The lights currently running all came from the same spool. Any help/insight appreciated. Thanks!

its the first time we've seen this particular effect, did you power it with 24 volts somehow?

We've only used the 12V power supply purchased from Adafruit.
