  1. I did get a reply from LOR and they said the logic fuse is the fan fuse. Which is 3 amps. Mine is good, I have also checked and there is power to all ports and to the RJ45 jack has power. It appears I have lost all data. I am still confused why the power light does not come on. LOR stated when the RJ45 jack broke it could have crossed wires and sent power into the board damaging the board. I do not think it is worth sending back and fixing. I am also running a Falcon 48 so I replaced the board with 4 4-String Differential SmartReceiver Boards and it works.
  2. Sent a ticket to help desk and they cannot answer this question. Said they would ping engineering.
  3. Update... Checked ports and they are showing 12.05 volts. So there is power going to the ports. However the power and status lights are not lighting up
  4. Think I may have fried my Pixcon 16 board. Had a RJ45 jack housing come off when unplugging cat5 cable. Guess it shorted out. So now my board does not work. Have power to both banks. Checking manual and it says there is a.5a logic fuse. Where is this fuse. I cannot find it. Then next question would be.... Where do I get a new fuse if this is what's wrong. Also new board is out of stock.
  5. THANK YOU That was it. JP2 jumper and now works. Power to mini director.
  6. Have a uMP3g3 Gen3 mini Director that was used in past to run my show. Working on set up for controlling a Pixie16 and Pixie8. Plug Cat5 cable from Pixie16 into the Mini Director. My memory says it should power the mini director. However no power. Check the manual and it says it should power. Plug in external power and it works. Any idea where I am going wrong with the Cat5 cable powering the mjini director? I am wanting a setup that will us the two AC plugs powering the Pixie16 and Pixie8 and no more power cables. Have a preshow sequence and show sequence. The mini director would al
  7. dibblejr Thank you for posting the instructions. I had forgotten about them. They will be a great help.... You were a great help to me last year when I had hit a road block and assisted me with the Pixcon16. You were a life saver. Now using the Pixie16 and 8 I had bought last year before the Pixcon16 to build this Matrix display for the Fire Department. AGAIN cannot say enough good about how you helped..... Do you think I should put a vent in the front door to help the air flow through? It would give air circulation to the controller.
  8. I am using the box that came with the Pixie16 below. Also using the 500 watt power supply that came with it. Remounted it with a 350 watt power supply that is powering the Pixie 8. It is vented in the back and thinking of putting a fan in the front door. This will be for a Fireworks display so temps could be in mid to upper 90's. It will only need to run for a few hours, one time during the show. Also had room to mount a Gen3 mini Director at the bottom of the box. Plan is to have everything self-contained for the show with a timer to start the mini Director. Have the dip switch set on
  9. Working on a 24 string 48 node matrix. Using a pixie16 and Pixie 8. Power supply question... Using 12 volt strings. I can set up the software to be at 50% which will use half the amps/watts. So can I set the software at 100% and turn the voltage down to 6 volts and have the same result. This may be a dumb question...... trying to figure out what power supplies to buy.
  10. Good to know. Do not know of many in the area. As far as I know I am the only one in White County doing this level. Last year was my first year and this is the first using Pixels. It is a big jump to pixels and had no idea there would be so much to learn. Still have props that did not get built due to all of the problems getting the Mega Tree to work. I am now reworking my sequences as they do not look as good on the tree as on the computer. I am having to slow things down and take out some detail. But, over all it is something good to watch. Wish you the best of luck and a Merry Chr
  11. I will not be much help for you SORRY, I too have a Pixie16 and was having problems getting it to work. Being short on time I bought the Pixcon16 board and swapped out the boards. It took a while to figure out how to set it up but, it is working. Hope in the Spring to figure out the Pixie16. I was able to get the first about 6 nodes to light and that was it. I was trying to run in DMX and learned the Pixie16 will not run in DMX. That is why I bought the Pixcon16. I have not used S5 yet as I was not familiar with it. I do wish you luck. This is a fun hobby and although expensive it i
  12. I could use this too if you have time to send it. nhale560@hotmail.com Thank you
  13. Thank you for the help on PM Have set up phone call. Already feeling better about getting something going on the Mega Tree,
  14. Posted this is several forms asking for help Background - This is my 2nd year, have Showtime Central with 2 CTB16PC. 1st to use pixels. - In the spring I did a lot of research and asked questions about building a Mega Tree, the controller and setup. After all of that, bought the Pixie16 with 16 50 node strings in the Spring sale. Bought 4 more strings to make 20. Spent the summer building the tree. Got sick a couple of times in the hospital and fell behind on build. Anyway got it done and from all the reading in the spring, had chosen to use XLights to program, Spent 6 months progr
