    I have 1M 60 LED 12v light strip.. I want to leave the 12V common line and cut the earth line between each LED + Resistor pair. When I tried this on the last LED I cut the earth strip along the back only to find it did not isolate the LED from the strip? The only effect was to prevent the strip from working from the short end but everything lit up when powered from the long end.. So I am not sure exactly what I cut?
