I need some help with a lighting project that I am working on. I have a total of 8 18" LED lights all hooked up to an RGB controller. When I did the soldering everything worked perfectly. Tonight I tried to string it in the boat and as I did it I kept testing the lights to make sure they were working.

The problem that I ran into is that after the third light, there is no green color. Every other color works fine. I tried resoldering the joints between the third and forth light a few times with no luck. I also tested the line going between the third and forth lights by soldering the line to the 4th light and then hooking up the RGB controller to the testing again - this time I got green all the way to the end of the line.

Thinking something was wrong with the solder joints on the 3rd strand of lights I recut the LED strip and soldered again. Same result - no green after the 3rd light string. All of the green lights show up with great brilliance in the 3rd string so it isn't like power isn't getting to a certain point. I just don't understand what I am missing. Can anyone give me some hints as to what is wrong?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks
