If so, check the blue trace for breaks, it should be labeled as B on the strip itself. Also make sure you didn't reverse the polarity, it will still half way work when reversed but all the colors won't display properly.
The + R G and B on the strip should always match when splicing and the + is always connected to the -> (arrow) on the control module.
Sorry - I wasn't clear enough. Those pictures were from when I first tested the kit. Now none of the lights come on.
It's only when I started taping the LED strip inside my C70 case, that I saw it was broken and wouldn't turn on. I am guessing it's maybe from all the bending? (Making the strip go around the rear fan to the top for example took some slight bending and twisting).
: The LEDs are working again!
You must think I'm crazy, but I can assure you they were not working an hour ago when I plugged them into both my current and old PC. Nuts!
I don't know what did the trick, but I only took off all the small bits of double-sided tape I put on the back of the strip. I plugged it into the computer... and voila
Maybe that was the problem? (It was normal double sided tape, not insulating tape).
Anyway, I'll post back with pics when I figure out how to hook the LEDs up nicely in the case.
