Hey, i have a question. In my PC i currently have 8 Corsair RGB strips connected and as of yesterday i noticed out of the corner of my eye i caught something weird going on inside my case.(I usually have all of the strips on a static White) After watching, waiting for something to happen, i noticed that one led, on one of the strips was changing colors, sometimes going off. Then sometimes four out of the eight strips would turn off or go rainbow, or some of the leds on each strip would go rainbow and some just turn off. I restarted iCUE, nothing, restarted my PC, nothing, checked for updates, nothing. Any suggestions? https://media.giphy.com/media/LOoFtt1CaObRtPdyTh/source.mp4

Sooo, after i found that the rgb strip was bad, i took it out. For context i have a strip on the left, right, and bottom of my case, the bottom strip was the bad one. So i took it out and moved the left strip to the bottom, and now that strip (the left that i moved to the bottom) is doing the exact same thing. Changing colors randomly and sometimes just blacking out. Idk what is going on.

It could be the strip that is chained before the strip that is acting up that is actually bad.

there is no strip before it, it goes straight to the power box (the node) i now think it has something to do with the node itself causing all of the problems, im afraid to connect another strip to the node because i think it will ruin another strip

Can you try changing them to static of a different colors and see if you can replicate it there? If you swapped a bunch of the strips around and can't eliminate the issue, it could be the LNP or a software glitch.

 

After you try the above could you try switching the hardware mode to all white?

I have tried switching the profiles,the strips, and i have repaired the software and uninstalled and reinstalled the software, but none of it worked. I got it to work for a little bit when i went to "instant lighting" and changed it to Blue, i tried all the colors and for some reason Blue was the only color that would act normally, but that did not last too long, for a day maybe, then the same two strips went back to changing colors and going dark (i have Eight strips in total, Four connected to each slot in the node) The same two i keep having problems with, i have also tried switching the power outputs to the lights(the node has Two power outputs for LEDS) and the same thing happens to the same Two strips no matter which output i plug it into. But i haven't tried any other strips in the output i had problems with because im afraid it will mess up more strips than necessary, so i think it might be the node but i dont want to be wrong and have it be something simple i overlooked.
