64x32 Flexible RGB LED Matrix - 5mm with Matrix Portal flick

by bonMiece on Sat May 08, 2021 1:12 pm

Finally got around to testing out an LED matrix with Matrix Portal, but I'm having an issue where the top left quarter (approximately, it is slightly more area than that) is flickering and displaying the wrong colors. I've tried a few different projects, get the same static across all tests. Power is being supplied by the Matrix Portal. I'm a software person not a hardware person, so not really sure what to try to fix this.

Thanks
