The Ring Lamp LED Bead is Damaged

After the LED lamp is turned on, some of the lamp beads do not light up, so you can be judged that the lamp beads are damaged. The damaged led bead can be seen with the eyes, there is a black spot on the surface of the lamp bead, which proves that it has been burned. Sometimes the lamp beads are connected in series and then in parallel, so for common faults, you may see a quarter of ring light does not light up or a certain part.

A Few Lamp Beads are Damaged

If only one or two lamp beads are broken, we can repair them by these two methods:

1. Find the broken lamp bead and connect the metal at both ends of it with a wire. The effect of this is that most of the lamp beads can light up normally, and only the broken individual lamp beads do not light up, which has little effect on the overall brightness.


2. If you know soldering, you can buy the same type of lamp beads and replace it yourself (Most ring light LED chip is 3528 SMD). Heat the old lamp bead with an electric soldering iron until the glue on the back of the old lamp bead is melted, and then remove the old lamp bead with tweezers. At the same time, install the new lamp beads while it is hot.


If a large number of lamp beads are damaged, it is recommended to replace the entire lamp bead board.

Plug in another USB port that can provide 5V, 2A power.

Note: Some computer USB ports cannot provide enough power for the ring light to work properly.


What Caused the LED Ring Lights Flicker?

Another thing that usually causes LED bulbs to flicker is a loose connection or circuit. This is easy to fix. Just check the connection line of the LED light and tighten it to solve the problem. If there is a lot of dust in the lamp, please blow off the connection point to remove the dust, and then put the bulb back.

It may also be that the wiring of the light connection point is loose. If multiple lamps are dimmed at the same time, the electrician will check the panel and/or junction box to ensure that all connections are properly secured.


Light Dimmer

Some new dimmer switches may not be compatible with LED lighting, or you may have installed non-dimmable lights in dimmable fixtures. Carefully read the labels on the bulbs and fixtures and make sure you have a suitable bulb to solve this problem. The power rating of the dimmer is also different, depending on whether the light is LED, incandescent, etc. Restarting the dimmer may also be the most effective way.
