Last night, I got this made in China ornamental led chain lights for decking up my balcony. It was working well for a while until about an hour after operation when it became all dim.
I've used such kinds of lights for a few years now (they don't last more than a few months after unwinding) and every time it has rained, the lights kept up. This time is turning out out to be everything but that.
The LEDs are 2 days new from the store.
I suspect the heavy rains during the time they were on. Or could it be something with the circuitry in the programs PCB? ( I did give in a check for poor soldering but saw that hot glue was used too, contrary to faith on some cold alloy alone ) By programs I mean those one - click - away settings to change the pattern of glow.
I checked the extension box, no probs. The house voltage was alrighty too.
•if it is the water, how may I get these fixed?
•what steps to take to reach a better conclusion at what the problem really is.
