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
When this club opened, it could have been an Elation crown jewel showroom. I think we had 24 each of the PSpot35's, PSpot 15 Pro, PSpot 5r Pro as well as several dozen PBeam 5r and 12 PBeam 15's. Also an impressive array of Event Bars, 32 in all. Despite a fairly dedicated crew and regular maintenance schedule, fixtures started dropping like flies within the first year. Warranty repairs were spotty, but they happened. Then everything was out of warranty, and the real carnage happened. Coming...
The lamp and fuse blew in my fixture. I replaced the lamp and borrowed a fuse from another working Platinum Spot 5R to get this fixture up and running but the fixture does not power on when plugged in. I used the DC Switch button to power on the menu with the internal battery. I reset lamp hours to 0, reset last run hours to 0, restored factory defaults, and turned off hibernation but it still does not power on. Can anyone help me with this?
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...
I've got a 5R Pro fixture that I finally figured out had an intermittent fan speed issue that was causing the fixture to overheat and burn out lamps after just a couple shows. Replaced the fan and it runs cooler, out of the danger zone. But still too close to the danger zone, it gets as high as 200F (93C) even though the ambient temperature is low. I feel like I can hear the fan change speeds when the head flips over. Is that a real thing? The manual says there's a fan control setting (High,...
The first thing I would check is if the fan is installed in the correct direction. Having the fan installed incorrectly can cause overheating issues. If you have another fixture that is working properly, I would make sure your fans on the problem unit are installed in the same direction.
Thank you - it's going the right direction for sure. I'm not convinced it's running at full speed. It could be a temperature sensor or something but if I could manually set the fan speed to high (like in the manual) it could solve the problem and/or be a permanent fix at this point.
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. It's only on the head covers so far, but when we cleaned them this year, some came out with white splotches that were sticky, some looked like the entire cover was coming off the substance was sticky underneath. I am going to try your soaking method to see if I can restore these head covers.
I don't know what this substance is but in the 90s there were lots of electronic gear that was encased with this rubber coating because it gave the device a "tough" look. 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...

Hello everyone. Today I was using the V1.0 Plat Spot 5R Pro menu to help me find the fan control. According to the manual it is in the personality menu and between Status Settings and Display Settings. On my fixture which is running V1.1 there is no such menu. I can not find a V1.1 menu anywhere online and I have gone through the menu on the head and can not find anything to do with Fan control. Can anyone help?
Hey everyone, I am working with six different LED Spot II moving head fixtures, and they are all having the same issue. They will randomly lock up and not respond to any DMX control signals. The only way to fix it is with either a power cycle, or to wait until the fixture automatically does a fixture reset. After which, everything is back to normal until it locks up again. It only seems to effect the LED II fixtures, and not our LED III fixtures. Is this a common issue? Is there a way to fix...
Greetings, please email me at gines dot gines at elation lighting dot com. also just a heads up parts for the DS250pro are no longer available. also let me know what issues you are having, i maybe able to point you in the right direction.
A bit of a shot in the dark but decided to ask here... In the past (2011 or so), requests for service manuals would usually get a response of "Send me your email and I'll forward one to you". Is that still possible today? I have two 250 Pros I need to revive for my church. (I already downloaded the User Manual...) Any help is greatly appreciated!!
I have received these beautiful new units and yet there is no personality that incorporates the Mint color. This is a huge disappointment. I have sent quite a few emails to tech support and staff but have not received any reply. They need to send ETC a color calibration for this unit so the fixture operates correctly. As of now, I have dropped the Mint out of any color picking which seems a total waste.
