Segments 1-8 no longer working


Recommended Posts

First, thank you in advance for your help and advice.

Just setup my first controller ever and powered up 16 segments.  Amazing results.  Has run very well for 2 days.

On the 3rd day, segments 1-8 are no longer working; 9-16 are working fine.  I have power confirmed to both input power cables.

As a newbie, where should I look first?  The fuses?  Reset the box?

I just received my second controller yesterday to power up another 16 segments; excited to see the results.

However, need advice on Segments 1-8 not working.

Again, thank you in advance for any advice/help.

Sounds like the fuse on the left side (1-8) has blown. Before you replace it, double check how much amperage you are pulling on that side and make sure you are not over the limit of the controller.

FYI - The brains of 16 channel LOR controllers are controlled by the 9-16 side. If you lose that side, you will lose the entire controller, even if 1-8 is working and good.

What type of lights and how many?  If you are running Incans, you might be overloading the bank.  A Killawatt (brand) meter is the easiest or if you have access to a Clamp-on AC Amp meter with at leas 20 Amp scale

If you are lucky, you might be able to re-balance some loads to the other bank
