Re: Stagesetter 8 problem, help plz

serraava ·
Couple things to try. First, did you check you dimmer for that channel? Maybe the dimmer just tripped or the fuse blew and you need to reset it or replace it. Next, did you check the lamps? It is possible that all the lamps on that channel blew out. Also, when a lamp blows out, sometimes it will take the fuse or trip the breaker on the dimmer. Lastly, have you tried anything else in that channel? Try moving the DMX addresses around so another set of lights comes up on that channel. If...

Any Idea where to get them? Or exact fuse replacement numbers? I ordered some from McMaster Car, but the realized they were 32volt when I got them. I just bought the 20Amp Fast acting for now from Radio Shack, but I know it will catch up to me very quickly.

When the fixture first powers up, the screen should still come on. Its is after about 30s of non use that the screen powers down. Also, as soon as you hit a button on the fixture, the screen should come on again. The screen itself doesn't have a fuse that I am aware of. I am also not sure if you can purchase just the screen and install yourself or have to send it in. That would be a question for service. I would recommend calling them about it. They might have another suggestion as well to...

Excuse me for getting low tech and wanting to help you get the job done: 2 suggestions: Power strips/bars and extension cords. If the fuse won't handle the load, it depends where the fuse is inline, and clearly it's in the inbound portion. I thought it would be elsewhere. Use 4 per "daisy chain" and burn 10 or 11 outlets via power strips and extension cords. I mean, if I was under the gun like you are, and I did the math like you did, I'd have come to the same conclusion after about an hour,...

Re: Fuse for DP-DMX20L

studio42 ·
That's a transformer, not a fuse. I'd suggest contacting Elation Support or sales to order a replacement part. But before you do that, know what model dimmer pack that is. If if's a DP-DMX20L, you'll need to contact American DJ's Service and/or sales departments and have a credit card ready. There is also European support for ADJ products, so you may want to direct questions to them first. Sorry, I don't have those phone numbers available.

OK, I received the replacement board today (thanks) and it powers up without blowing the fuse each time (an improvement), however the board you sent is ver. 1.3 and my board was ver. 1.1 (sigh). So, the connecting cable doesn't fit. http://www.stevenragatz.com/temp/lightboard.jpg The new board is on top and has the grey socket. The older board on the bottom allows for the current cable to attach. Question: Is there a cable that I can get to replace the one that is in my unit or do I have to...

Gines, I finally got the lights up on the bench and it was exactly that: Fuse "F2" on the main logic board was bad -- on BOTH of my brand-new lights! So, an easy fix but what an odd coincidence, perhaps a bad batch of fuses? Anyway, problem is solved. Thank you!

Never mind that... size part... just found it.. thought i share.. 120V = 8A/250V, GMA (5x20mm fine-wire fuse) 220V = 4A/250V, GMA (5x20mm fine-wire fuse)

Old Trackpod 81 TP-81 Intelligent LEDs Color Systems blowing fuses at power on.

Hello All, While I am a electronics technician, I have no experience with production lighting or LED systems as I am more of an amp guy.

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?

Platinum Spot 5R fuse blew, now sparking

djnealprime ·
Hello, I was at an event and my mover turned off randomly and would not power on. I'm assuming there was some sort of power surge causing this fuse to blow? After looking around, I found that the in-line fuse on the board (inside the unit) was blown. I replaced it with the same kind fuse. As soon as I powered up, I started seeing sparks near the junction of some power wires that had a dark brown metal ring around it. I checked the wires and no shielding is exposed. Any thoughts what could be...

Replacement Fuse for Elation Proton color.

misebeam ·
I am trying to find the EXACT replacement fuse for an Elation Proton Color. All documentation says 20 Amp 250 Volt fuse but doses indicate fast acting, or SLO-blow. I looked at the fuse, and it looks like it is a "SLO-BLO" or "time delay". It does not look like a fast acting fuse. The only numbers on the fuse say 6S20250V, but cannot find any cross reference. I have tried Grainger, and McMaster Car. Where can I find these?

Problem with Stage Setter-8 or DP-DMX 20L !?!?

The channel faders on the board aren't working. However, when I hit "full on" or a chase pattern, the lights come up. I did all the basic checks (crossfades, DMX cable switchout, etc). I'm not even clear whether the problem is with the dimmer or the board!?! I checked the external fuses on the dimmer and they all looked fine. I wasn't sure about the internal fuse- I could barely see it. Could it be that? Any help would sure be appreciated. Thanks, Shortylavender
