When my Blinkytape first arrived it worked fine, I had it connected via the USB ports on a Logitech G500 keyboard to my iMac. I was running through PatternPaint and the Arduino sketches and they were all working, until at one point all the LEDs were supposed to turn white. At that point the tape went out and OS X said my USB port was drawing too much power.
I've since connected it to a powered hub. However, when I connect the Blinkytape to the hub most of the LEDs flash white then fad to sort of a yellowish orange, except that the one LED furthest from the USB port is orange and the next 9 LEDs are off. The tape is not recognized at all by OS X, not even a "Device Not Recognized" error.
I've tried the resetting trick with the two needles on GND and the hole, but that had no effect. Is my tape dead or is there another reset mechanism I can try?
