One of the many benefits of led lights is that they don’t need a lot of extra attention or care. Once you’ve hung them on the wall, they should last up to 50,000 hours, meaning you may not need to repair or replace the LED strips for several years.
Unlike string lights, you can’t exactly swap out a tiny burned-out bulb on LED light strips. If your LED light strip isn’t working, you can replace the light strip. To do this:
Follow the cut lines on the LED light strip. Cut along the line between the faulty strip and the working strips.
Place a new strip between the two other working strips. Ensure the 12V, R, G, and B connection markers are aligned. Solder the four connections in any order.
Apply a new adhesive backing to the removed LED light strips, if needed.
Replace the LED light strips on the wall and plug into power up the repaired light strip.
If this still doesn’t work, you may need to remove the LED light strips and replace them with a fresh set. Typically, you shouldn’t run into this issue for many years with the long lifespan of LED lights.
