Left side. Try get better ones. But the wires between the arrays are opposite the hookup wires.

The wiring of the power supply confuses me cause white should be neutral but it just trips power supply and beeps. Wired this way they blink

Is the cable at the bottom of the picture (white and bare) connected to a DC power supply? Need to see that, too.

Was this wired when you bought it?

Here's what I'd do if it were me.

Make sure which pads are 2V- on the LED boards, since they're all marked 2V+.

Unsolder the wires from the LED boards. Make sure your power supply polarity to the driver board is correct. Power it up (with no LED's connected) and see if the power supply trips. If it doesn't trip, then your driver board is probably OK. If it does it could be a problem with one of the drivers, the driver board, or the power supply.

If it doesn't, connect 1+ and 1- on the driver board to 1V+ and 1V- on ONE of the LED boards and see if some of the LED's light up. Connect 1+ and 1- to 2V+ and (what should be) 2V- on the same board and see if the other set of LED's on the board light up.

Repeat this for the other LED board.

Do all of this again, but use 2+ and 2- instead.

The idea is to break it down and see where the problem might be.

LEDs were wired. Think that's a miss print on board. Left sides are + rights are - only way they light on single strings Even with no LEDs power supply trips hooked up. I know for sure one ldd is junk. Yea. White and bare is power supply. I tried individual strings on both Ldds when they where good. Just blinks. Want a pic of power supply stats?

Sure. Post a pic of the power supply.

Can you send it back for repairs or return?

I might be able to. I need to know more about the led strings to order another and if it's bad. But I believe it may be
