250 Design Spot plastic cover panels

Kojak ·
I have had these Design Spot 250 lights for about 9 years and the rubberized coating on the plastic covers of the lights had deteriorated into a sticky oily mess. You couldnt touch the units you'd end up with hands full of a greasy glop. No spray solvent I tried would remove this stuff. Elation couldn't help me, they wanted to sell me new replacement covers. They couldn't even tell me what the coating was made of. Each time I touched the lights I had to run and wash my hands. My workers...

Design Spot 250 Pro Color wheel alignment

Service ·
Hi all, Elation doesn't support the DS250 pro anymore or I'd ask them. I have a color wheel that is slightly out of alignment and it seems like the "calibrate values" option available in the fixture menu would be able to correct this. However, when I look in the manual for instructions it says only to contact Elation customer support. Anyone done this before? Able to pass along these instructions they mention? Or point me to where I'd be able to find them? Thanks, -Josh

Thank you for the tip, I came to the forum today because I'm having the same issue on my older Platinum 5R beams and 5R spots.

I am going to try your soaking method to see if I can restore these head covers.

Years later we know now that stuff is no good; it decomposes over time and turns to greasy sticky tar. Elation techs say the company doesn't supply lights coated with this substance anymore; they use a different plastic panel supplier for their products now, and they were not willing to say what the substance was or offer...

I would try calibrating the color wheel while a fixed color is selected. The password for calibrating is 50. Try changing the values until to reach your desired output.
