You can use MA2 Fixtures and convert them via Export to MA3 Fixtures. I think there are some Videos in the Web who are explaining how that works.

Platinum Wash ZFX Flickering Issue

Vilkas ·
My client has some Elation Platinum Wash ZFX Pro units in a permanent event space install. I do an annual maintenance sweep for them. Last year a couple of the units started to flicker when they get close to full on (R, G, B, W emitters all at or near full). If you take the edge off and lower some intensities, the problem goes away. I replaced the LED driver boards in both units and the problem went away. Fast forward a year and the same two units are showing the exact same problem. All the...

Greetings, you will need to replace the wiring harness that goes from the base to the led via the arm.. this typically will resolve the issue. (red/blue wires) UPDATED WIRING HARNESS FOR EPW880 (elationlighting.com)

Hi Ela. Thank you for the info! Are you an Elation employee? Is this official advice from Elation or are you just speaking from experience in the field?

ELA GINES ·
greetings, yes i work for elation, we have seen this issue on units with higher hours on them. over time the current demand increases slightly and the existing cable is not quite thick enough. this being said there maybe other issues which may require attention but based on your description this typically resolved the issue.

I am facing same problem, there are 6 elation wash are flickering in my rig only whenever I turn white color or dimmer color on. no flickers in blue , red ,green,.i had parked white color for some lights looks good some times suddenly flickers. i feel it is main PCB issue not the cable . main power cable (red&blue ) seems good because I checked with multimeter they are giving right volts 28.28.

Re: Platinum Wash ZFX Flickering Issue

Hi there! Yes. I succeeded changing the cable for the new version. Problem is solved. Did you meter power at the head with all emitters at full? I definitely found that with everything at full juice, there was a slight voltage drop that I thought at the time was negligible, but it turns out it was the cause of the issue. The new wiring harnesses I installed looked and felt identical to the old ones, but definitely solved the problem. My only guess is that the original harnesses must have had...

Platinum Wash ZFX Pro Zoom stuck

MrE1998 ·
I’m having issues with some of my Zfx wash pros where they’re stuck at a specific zoom degree and won’t respond to controls. Does anyone have suggestions what may be keeping it from working? I’ve tried factory resetting and manually controlling the zoom from the fixture itself but no luck.

Re: Platinum Wash ZFX Pro Zoom stuck

over time the small hex nut can tighten up causing the linear motors to bind. try backing them off 1/2 turn and retest. if not successful then the linear motor maybe fatigued and require replacement.

Where in the fixture is that hex nut/motor? The head, arms or base?

Re: Platinum Wash ZFX Pro Zoom stuck

ELA GINES ·
sorry it would be on the end of the linear motor itself, email parts at elation lighting . com and ill send a picture.

I went ahead and tried loosening the 3 hex nuts that half turn, but during testing I don’t see/hear any of the 3 the motors run at all. Would it be all 3 went bad at the same time or potentially something else in the board not sending power to those 3 motors?

I tried tracing the power lines but just making sure, the power for those 3 motors is on the backboard connected to J20-J22, correct?

check voltage at the linear motor, it is possible for all to go out since they work equally.

Fuze Z350 Wash Conundrum

Lighting Bird ·
We have several Fuze z350 wash fixtures at the venue I work at. When they are controlled by the house Avo Titan Mobile, they work flawlessly. However, when a touring act rolls through with a GrandMA console, and they strobe the fixtures vigorously, the intensity may randomly decide to stop working. In rare instances, the fixture will get stuck on, and in place. Only a hard reset from the breakers fixes this problem. Tours have told me they have encountered this problem with these fixtures...

While I'm locating the C-loader, can you give me some clue as to why this glitch only effected MAs talking to these fixtures? This is something that has been hurting my head as an Avo guy. Thanks in advance! - Bird

Personally speaking i've had this happen on my Fuze Z120s running an Obsidian NX2 console before as well, its mostly a bug in the strobe controller and I can confirm the firmware upgrade fixes it. It's not just Ma and AVO its a fixture firmware issue.

Thanks for that information ! I never managed to trigger it with my Avo, and I definitely use the strobe function for metal show. I'm just glad to hear this will fix the problem with certainty. You are my hero.

Hi, it sounds like a firmware upgrade is needed for the fixtures, email Firmware@elationlighting.com and tell them the current firmware version of the Z350s you have now and they can advise on a newer firmware that should fix this issue.
