I have a small strip of 21 LEDs (WS2812B) which keeps resetting - sometimes after several hours, sometimes much quicker. I cannot figure out why!
I’m using WLED 0.14 on an ESP8266, powered by USB-C cable. I had tried cabled to the back of my monitor, but am now using a dedicated 20W USB-C adapter as I thought that might be the problem. The strip is soldered to the 8266’s 5V, GND + D2/GPIO4 pins.
I’ve configured a 1000mA limiter (WLED estimates 950mA max draw when all LEDs are max white/bright).
I had to enable the ‘Disable WiFi sleep’ option as the ESP kept losing WiFi, which means I now don’t lose connectivity to the strip (with ping). But clearly the strip is resetting itself all the time as the startup preset is set to off (so I test with all LEDs on and wait for it to switch off).
Does anyone have any ideas how I can troubleshoot this further, please? It’s driving me nuts. I have 3 other similar controllers I’ve made which all work fine.
