Why is the LED light strip stuck on one colour?

If your LED strips are stuck on one colour when you change colours, it’s probably because you have been pressing the same colour button, which reaches peak value. Try using the reverse button to adjust it higher or lower. If still to no avail, check the contact of your pins and reconnect. Poor pin contact may hinder the strips from lighting up completely. In addition, the remote control may malfunction, and you can replace the battery. Rarely the connector pin may be faulty, and we should therefore install it carefully without too much effort to avoid pin breakage that leads to strip lights malfunction.

Part 1. How to Make DIY Colours on LED Strip Lights

LED strip lights can be divided by colour into single-colour and multi-colour types, the latter of which includes RGB and dreamcolour strip lights. RGB strips refer to the fact that each piece of LED lights on the strip consists of red, green, and blue chips that can give off red, green, or blue lights on their own, or glow whatever colour you want when two or three chips combine. Dreamcolour strips place IC chips to beads of the RGB type, where each IC chip matches a pixel point. By adjusting the colour or brightness of each pixel point, it can achieve rich animation effects like horse-running, watercourse, the tail of a shooting star, scanning, etc. Comparatively, RGB strips show the same colour at each moment and can’t accomplish effects like water-running or horse-racing.
