Hey everyone. New to the Pi but hoping to learn as I go along!
I thought I’d plug a USB LED strip I had into my Picade, with the intention of using it to create a lit marqee. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to be drawing enough power. The LEDs blink on/off and the Picade doesn’t boot at all.
The 50cm LED strip is much like this one.
I presume the Picade hat and LCD screen are consuming too much power? Is there a way to power a strip of LEDs as well as the essiential Picade componants?
