5 leds not lighting up in a sp120 rgb elite fan

Recommended Posts

Hello, I recently noticed that 5 leds out of 8 on a corsair sp120 rgb elite fans are not lighting up. I bought the fan with my pc 4 months ago, and there are 3 of them, and the problem is only in one of them. The corsair icue software shows the leds are lighting up. I discovered that 5 leds are not lighting up. What should I do, how can I fix it without taking back to the store? Thanks.

If the LEDs in the CUE software are lighting up, then the effect appears to be applied to all.  You can check by clicking the "all" button off/on.  


Most Corsair RGB controllers are a series circuit, so if LED #4 on fan 2 goes out, the lights will stop right there.  It is possible one LED on a fan has failed.  Is this on the "third" fan in your series?  The normal test is to move the fan to the #1 position on the controller.  In the back of the PC the Lighting Node Core should be attached and the RGB cables  connected to 1-2-3.  Switch 1 and 3.  If all the LEDs go out except the first 3, then you have a defective fan.  Contact Corsair Support through the link at the bottom of this page or the main website.
