    Good day everyone,

    This is my first post so bare with me here.
    My issue is this..
    Two of my led runs are green while rest are red and red while rest are green.
    looks like the lights have improper wiring order. (cause of different manufacture ?)

    In my home theatre I have a large led circuit ran consisting of 5050s and 3528s . off the controller I have 7 parallel outputs. Now the issue is the light runs that are green (when they should be red) have a series of light runs coming after. Changing red to green on input wiring flips color code on the next strip of lights. 46436467_903334909863280_5014186370311127040_n.jpg 46479403_2332248593513126_7472105637376163840_n.jpg

    You're going to have to swap the connections at both ends of the strip that's wired differently. Presumably they're linked together with runs of ribbon type cable or similar so it shouldn't be too difficult to rejig the wiring. It'll be more of a pain of you have to unsolder on the strip itself, too much heat can melt the strip and make it very difficult, if not impossible to solder wires on.
