Hi , I am extremely new to Blynk, ESP32, Arduino etc which is why I am asking for help or guidance. What I want to do is use my Android smartphone to control some WS2812 Leds via an Esp32 (Dev kit V1 is the name printed on the board)
From watching numerous videos ( which have probably confused me even more in all honesty ) this should be a very simple task of uploading an existing sketch, connect the corresponding pin for data ( plus a 5v power source ) power everything on and Voila ! Let There Be Light !
But no. I get nothing. The Sketch uploads perfectly fine, the Led’s will work when connected to a different data signal so I know 100% that they work but connected to the ESP32 nothing happens at all.
Is there an extremely simple A- B- C way to do this that my slug of a brain can understand ?
Many thanks for any help you can give me.
