HI

I just bought the TL board for my school and there was something weird going on with the Colorados on the rig, which stayed on even when not activated, so we decided to reset the board and now the only thing working are the independent conventional profiles on individual dimmer packs. The rest of the lights are LEDS and none of them now respond to command. What do I need to do to get these lights working?

Thanks.

Hi,

 

Was this desk setup for you? By resetting it, you've reset the patch of these lights.

 

Have a look in the manual at the sections on 'assigning fixtures' and 'patching'

 

You can download the manual from this link:

Regards,

Yes mate the desk was set up for us (@SS), but like I say there was something weird going on with the Colorados at the end of the rig. We turned the lights off at the switches and the board on and off to reset but they just would not seem espond to the board. So we reset completely and now because we didn't set the board up ourselves, we don't exactly know what to do to fix it. Yesterday, I sat with the manual and the board for a couple of hours, which enabled me to get the manuals on and the leds on the board itself functioning properly but nothing else yet. Do I need to update the library before going any further?

Also @Jon

 

I also had this reply from someone else:

 

"The LED's will depend on how they operate - if they are only a single channel of DMX as per a dimmer they will simply need addressing on the fixture to a channel number. If they use more than one channel they will, like the Chauvet's, need to be assigned a personality or 'profile' as the Jester calls it for no reason. These are selected from a fixture library and then assigned to one of the 20 available slots. You have to do all of this in setup before they will work, if the fixtures aren't assigned on the desk (And also the corresponding DMX address assigned on the actual Fixture) you won't be able to control them."

 

You seem to be saying the same thing I think?

This link is very good for those learning how to set dmx addresses. You might want to refer to it in your next training session. It would be good if zero88 had a series of straightforward videos like this people could reference.
