KNACRO 4-Channel DC 5V Relay Module 30A DC 30V/AC 250V connected to a Raspberry PI 3 B+. 3 channels will work but 1 won't.

I'm assuming is a 3.3 vs 5v issue.

It doesn't matter which 3 I use they all work.

But if I connect all 4 it doesn't work.

I'm wondering if the 'Com' I'm seeing on the GPIO side needs to be connected to 5v as well. Most relays don't have a 'Com' on the GPIO side just the side that connects to devices.enter image description here

    You have given no information about the wiring between the Pi and the relay module. Without that information no useful answer can be provided. – joan Jan 10 at 17:21

    It has been a similar discussion in the Arduino Stack exchange group, and to supply a 5V device with 3,3V is as asking for trouble. – MatsK Jan 10 at 21:41
