LED Strip

So much for LEDs lasting 20 years... This is what my FR3 strip looks like on my 2015 FR3 30DS... all these out and it's only 2018...

LEDs CAN last 20 years. If they are well made. Most are not.

The LED’s last, but the supporting electronics and wiring doesn’t.

I guess that speaks volumes for the quality of items used in FR3s...

Mostly it is the electronics going to them that fails. Yours could be simply bad solder joints.

From a customer viewpoint... I don't care if the fault is the LED bulb, the wiring, the switch, the joint, the whatever... ;-) It's just another example of poor workmanship.

You are absolutely correct.

You're lucky, mine didn't make it out of the warranty period! They replaced the whole strip (which i'm glad actually, because its a different strip and less of a blue light). We'll see how long the second set lasts...
