Flexible Neon-like Skinny NeoPixel LED Strip - Not Working

by aribegun on Sun Dec 01, 2019 11:21 pm

Hi,

I have followed the appropriate tutorial for the neon-like skinny neopixel LED strip, however, I have not been able to get the strip to light up even once and I received no error code.

The code I am using is the following simple code:

import board
import neopixel
pixels = neopixel.NeoPixel(board.D18, 30) # Raspberry Pi wiring!
pixels.fill((0, 255, 0))


If you can please help me to see if the product is defective and if yes, how can I go about an exchange as soon as possible please as I have a project due this week

Thank you!

Can you link to the specific guide you are following.

Also, which specific NeoPixel strip are you using? Can you link to product page.

Since you are using a Raspberry Pi, you'll also want to follow this guide:
https://learn.adafruit.com/neopixels-on ... i/overview
which will take you through some additional software setup. That guide also has the suggested wiring for the Pi.

Appreciate the reply

I have just ordered a level shifter as well as a diode hopefully that will work and I will update you when I get the results.
