    Hi,
    I builded a fully fonctionnal hyperion solution using a pi zero and an apa102C led strip.
    But two time a single led stopped working and the strip stop to react from this led to the end.
    The only solution was to cut the strip and replace thé non fonctionning led (i had too much led on my 5meters strip)
    Do you think a missconfiguration could cause this malfunction or i just bought bad quality strip ?
    Thank you

    I've had a couple of leds on my apa102 strip blow out in the middle of the strip as well, in the 3ish years of use.
    probably just luck of the draw.
    My reasoning is, If you have a strip of 150+ leds, chances are good a couple of them well be iffy and not caught by quality control.
