    Default Dim section on 180 LED light string *solved

    Hi all, I have a 37.5 ft 180 light string of LED Vertical Cut C3 Christmas lights from Big Lots. Some sections are out some are dim.
    I bought the LED Keeper to test it, just arrived today. The LED Keeper doesn't mention dim lights. I'm just figuring out the LED Keeper but I figured I'd go ahead and post about the dim ones.
    Does anyone know what's happening with the dim ones and can it be fixed?

    Thanks
    Steve

    Are the dim LEDs all in the same area? Maybe in the middle of the string?

    How are you providing power to the string? What gauge wire and length of power cable?

    Thanks It turned out not to be a problem. I thought it might turn into something so I posted first. I figured out the LED Keeper and worked the lights. the dim ones were just power leaking from the bad ones. Once I found all the bad ones the dim went away.
