What is the problem?
Hi all, so I am by no means an IT expert, far from it. so this might be an easy fix but I am stumped.
I have set up a Raspberry Pi 3 b+ running Octoprint connected to the Prusa I3 Mk3S via USB, with a Logitiech Camera connected, and it was all working fine. I wanted to add some lighting, so I purchased this USB 5v LED lights (https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07SQVLRCD/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A124YGLFVPBOL2&psc=1), however when I plug it in to the Rpi 3b+ USB, the Pi and the Mk3S suddenly lose connection and can not re-connect. and the Lights flicker, just slightly. Once I unplug the USB Lights, the Printer and Pi start talking like nothings happened. Has anyone got any idea what the heck is going on?
On a second note, ones I can get the lights to behave themselves and do as they are told, is there anyway I can add a button to Octoprint to turn the lights on and off when I want?
What did you already try to solve it?
Repeated the issue by connecting and disconnecting the USB lgihts. tried different USB ports for all the attached items, and issue still persists
