It's late so have not starting trouble shooting. Looking for direction in that regard. First 8 channel power supply line plugging in and is blowing GFI and breaker. second 8 chanels are working. Replace 15amp fuse also. The kick is not turning any lights on when plugging in. Where is the draw, a short on the board. Other two 16 channel controller working fine. Please assist. Afraid I have fried that side. I did have the contoller off the house for painting in the summer.

Thank you in advance.

says that he "had it off of the house for painting in the summer". So I assume that he took it down this past summer and stored it. But any critter could have built a nest in the controller in while it was stored. Op open the box and take a look around. Any signs that someone moved in to the box and left behind a mess?

Well, found the problem not the fix. Cleaned the PCB of spider nest and light debri, no change. Found Channel 7 is hot when turning on the contoller and was hooked up to a shorted extention chord blowing the GFI and CB. Tried looking for an internal short in the controller to no avail. Reset input switches N/O N/C no change. Believe this is over my head just leaving channel 7 off the display waiting for a replacment controller.

Anyone ever come across this situation?
