This can be caused by one of many things;
1. The lights are running from a driver of an incorrect voltage.
2. The fitting has been wired to an incompatible dimmer.
3. You have overloaded your LED driver. Please calculate the wattage of the connected lights and ensure this does not exceed the total wattage allowance of the connected driver.

The male end of every flexible strip is supplied with an end cap covering the pins to protect them. For interlinking and connecting to the driver connection cable this end cap must be removed.
