Re: HCWS2812 Library For Serial RGB LEDs

Problem solved !! and it's thanks to you. I made this circuit very quickly with minimal components. As it worked fine for all other modes I thought it was a bug in the code somewhere, but when you said " Maybe your battery pack doesn't have the capacity ", I immediately knew the circuit requires a c...

Here are some images of my project, including mode 1 just before it shuts off.

Re: HCWS2812 Library For Serial RGB LEDs

Thanks for the quick response. I think I have a power supply issue. When I upload my sketch via the arduino uno to my home made board, power is supplied by the usb cable and there are no problems. ( I just can't see it as it is a POV spinner. As you have pointed out 350 microseconds is too fast, whe...

Re: HCWS2812 Library For Serial RGB LEDs

8 rgb LED POV. I have pasted a copy of my code below. As you can see i have 4 modes which can be toggled using a button switch on pin 15. All modes work fine except, mode 1, which is a simple counting display. It works for about 20 seconds counting nicely, and then all leds turn off and it's frozen....

Re: HCWS2812 Library For Serial RGB LEDs

I have made a POV with 8 RGB LEDs. This a great library and works well most of the time. However, occasionally when using the print function to print an integer value, it crashes. I've checked and double checked my hardware and code, tried adding delays but still it shuts down. If anybody has experi...
