    When you power it, does the blue LED one the Lumazoid board come on?
    How are you powering the Lumazoid? It requires a 5V supply, center positive. It must be able to deliver 2A minimum.
    Exactly which kind of LED strip did you connect?

    Is the power supply center positive?

    I test every Lumazoid before shipment, so I’m not sure how it could stop working. Have you soldered a connector for the LEDs? Did you power it on before doing that?

    yes sir it is center positive is there any other way to power the board?

    You could try connecting the power source directly to the 5V and GND pins where you soldered the LED connector, but we need to figure out why the board is not working when you apply power.

    Can you use a multimeter to see if you have shorted 5V and GND together when soldering the LED connector?

    Does anything get hot when you try to power it?

    So, you are saying that there is not continuity between the power jack (the connection at the end of it) and the 5V pad where the LEDs connect?

    (There was when I tested it, because I connect an LED strip with pins to 3 pads for the LEDs, and I connect a power supply to the jack.)

    Maybe you can send a picture of your LED strip connection.

    I think there is something wrong at the power input! And I don’t believe at any point have I said it was your board as you are implying it was connected wrong??? as I said no blue light no continuity or 5v where the leds connect? the only thing that reads continuity is the ground???

    Ok, I’m just having a hard time understanding. I will send you a replacement board along with return postage for the bad unit. You can drop the bad unit in the same box as the new one and put the return label on the box. That way I can diagnose the bad unit and find out what is wrong.
