I started my first LED project, and I'm running into an issue where only the first couple (anywhere between 1 and 4) of lights light up, and they don't seem to be changing colors. My current setup:
1. Raspberry Pi Zero W flashed with Hyperbian
2. WS2812B 60LED/M (5 meter total)
3. 5v 10a PSU (I understand that this isn't enough to fully power the lights, but I'll be dimming them to no more than 25-30 percent [I've also seen a number of posts and videos showing an identical setup that evidently works at full power, not that I'd want it that bright])
4. Additionally I have an HDMI switch and a capture card, but I'm not using them yet
I have the positive wires of both the RPi and the light strip going into the + side of the barrel jack, both negatives into the - side, and the data wire from GPIO18 to the middle/green wire of the strip.
I'm able to access Hyperion through the web browser where I've configured what I believe to be the correct setup, but when I change various effects like standby and boot nothing happens. I'm also able to connect to the server through the Hyperion mobile app, but when I change the colors still nothing happens.
The only thing that seems to get the lights to change is when I unplug the barrel jack form the power and plug it back in, once both the Pi and the strip turn on, the first couple of lights turn on, sometimes different colors than the previous time
Any and all help would be appreciated, I've been at it for over a week.
