Having problems with one of my 1602W units. It won't power up. Changed the fuses with another box and they were fine.

Any ideas what might be wrong.

Thanks for any help.

Do you have a multimeter or "wiggy" available? Are you sure it's getting power? Any lights or LEDs coming on, or is it dead dead?

It just seems dead. There is power to the plugs but don't know much about testing inside and don't want to mess something up.

The red light does not come on.

A couple of things that comes to mind after just finishing building 2 additional kits.

If using one AC input cord it must be on the right side, unless you have the jumpers for tyeing both sides together.

Also, make sure the voltage selection jumpers are in the correct orientation for the voltage your using. These are to the right of the transformer.

I got this complete from Dan. It worked fine last week but when I plugged it back in today it was just not working.

racernut, if you're planning on doing any work with computerized lighting, I strongly recommend picking up even a basic multimeter from Radio Shack (or some other electronic supply store). You can get a pocket multimeter from Radio Shack for about $16 (link here).

You can get one from Sears ($8) also. But you'll want one no matter where you get it. At the least, it can tell you if you have power to the box and if the fuses are good. Without one, you're pretty much flying blind.

Oh, and it's really handy for finding bad wiring and/or bad bulbs.

One thing to try is a reset. Even if it looks like the unit is dead....

To do a reset, unplug the unit, set the unit ID to 00 then plug it back in.

Wait 5 seconds then unplug it and set the Unit ID back to the original value.

-----

With POWER OFF... Also check to see that the jumpers that select the voltage are in place and press down on the big chip in the center of the board to make sure it is seated properly.

Your unit is under warranty so if it does not snap back to life we will fix/replace it for you.

Arthur called and we will have to take a look at this one.

As per the phone call he is sending it to:

Light O Rama Returns

22 Hudson Falls Rd. Unit 34

South Glens Falls NY 12803

(didn't mention this on the call. Please include a slip of paper with return address and the problem with the unit )...
