    An under cabinet led strip cut. Just slightly, on the side. There are three "wires" inside the strip, and one is cut. So now the leds starting from the cutting until the end side of the strip do not work. If I manually keep the two side of the cut "wire" togheter, the entire strip work fine. Using adhesive tape does not look like it can hold the broken "wire" in the perfect positioning for long. Is it possible to solder it? Or are there any other techniques to fix the strip?

    If you have a hot glue gun, and you can keep the LEDs on by pressing and making contact, then that would work. Know it from experience.

    No hot glue gun here

    yes you can solder them together...there is 3 little brass soldering joints for every 6 LEDS...3 little wires solder from brass joint to joint

    Hot glue guns are pretty cheap and can be bought at Walmart, Home Depot, craft stores etc..

    So, do I need to completely cut the strip at the sixth led near the joints, and then solder the joints with other joints on the other remaining part of the strip (also cut at the proper place)?

    I would cut the strip and then resolder the strips using jumper wires. It can be tight soldering.

    Thanks, worked like a charm. Very easy. Two soldering joints every 3 leds on my strip.
