    I think it very well couldbe

    how do you have your LED's wired in regards to power? DO they have power going in from both sides?

    also

    276 WS2812B LEDS > 5V 10A PSU + DATA 10

    60mA * 276= 16,560mA @ Max brightness

    16.56 amps would be the MINIMUM for max brightness.

    Sorry it took me so long to respond. Was busy during holidays. To answer your question, no they were just powered from the bottom right corner. And I actually just realized that I wasn't giving it enough power.

    I've since purchased a 5V 20A PSU and wired it up, but I'm getting no response now. Could my LEDs be dead; or the nano? The Ard. nano still lighting up, but it doesn't seem to be sending any signals to the LEDs.

    I tried reuploading the sketch to see if I could at least get the start up animation, but nothing. Is there a way to check the components?

    Any help would be appreciated.
