Customer Question

I am making this and need some help. I have connected the paired wire to a 12v power supply that I bought. The power supply green light comes on so I know it works. But when I connect the twisted paired wire to the led light panel (+ to +V and - to COM) the green light goes out and the led lights never come on. I have several questions trying to figure out what I've done wrong. Looking for someone who builds things with power supplies.

I suspect my problem may be in my soldering of the light strips to the paired wire or in the paired wire connections to the power supply.

Hello, tell me please what exactly you are attempting to power with the power supply you bought, I will either answer your question of forward it to an expert in the appropriate category.

I want to test the light strips before I add the additional electronic components. See the referenced youtube video at 6:52.
