Thank you for providing the project and this great community! Total noob here, I thought I had followed the official tutorial:
(https://hyperion-project.org/t…mbilight-no-soldering.77/), however accidentally ended up with a set of 4-pin WS2813 LEDs instead (60/m, 184 total).
I can't get the LEDs to light up at all. No boot sequence, no single colours, no white, nothing.
I wired them up as per the diagram in the tutorial:
I have the LEDs on GPIO pin 19 and 23 on the Pi as per the picture, ground is on pin 6 and going to external power supply (5V 10A). No arduino. No level shifter.
Raspberry Pi4, latest Raspbian OS. Have everything installed including Hyperion as a service. Can connect to the service via HyperCon.
I have selected the WS281X-SPI, but also tried other configurations. The config file gets sent via SSH correctly.
Where can I start to troubleshoot this? I am completely new to LEDs and have a very basic understanding of electronics. I have not yet seen the LEDs light up yet, so I'm not sure if the strip is malfunctioning.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
Thank you kindly in advance,
