    Pixel Extender Trouble Shooting

    Hey Guys,

    Just looking for some guidance. Got a new batch of pixel extenders this year to solder together, and I've assembled a couple so far and I cannot for the life of me get them to work.

    I'm using a bridge that is working on my old batch of pixel extenders from last year, and it lights up the pixels no probelem. I connect a new extender to the same bridge and pixels and nothing. The green power light is lit on the extender, but I can't get any action. At first I thought maybe I soldered something wrong, but tried my second new one and it's a no go too.

    Any thoughts?

    Where did you get the pixel extenders?
    Is power passing through appropriately?
    Is the power being converted to appropriate voltage for the chip? Is the chip right side up?
