  1. Did anybody spot the Zero88 fatfrog in the new fantastic four movie?. And not a lamp in site.
  2. Its the old martin protocol, the board makes no sense to me. If the scan accepted dmx then no probs but I'm not spending money on a martin converter for a mess around project in the stores. Found it!! lets see who can build the next huge thing in lighting http://www.milinst.com/DMX/dmxtext.htm
  3. Has anybody out there got a simple way of controling stepper motors.(not via a frog). Ripped an old martin 218 non dmx unit apart for the duck of it and was wondering how would i be able to control the motors say to pan and tilt a video camera. Keep it simple. 8O
  4. Try plugging the desk into another mains supply, if power failed the outlet or circut may be damaged.

    Cleaning a Frog

    How long did it take to strip the desk and rebuild it? any bits left over?? 8O
  6. I did a show there a few years ago, the desk was straight from flash gorden and crap faded washes. Most of the rig is used as punter lighting. :cry:
  7. By any chance was Speedy anywhere near the desk, he has the touch of death when it comes to lighting. 8O
  8. Well been lazy at a gig the other day, instead of running my dmx snake I jumped into a spare channel on the noiseboy's multi. BUT! unknowen to me the monitor desk was been used for the gig, and yes it happened the monitor noiseboy turned on the phantom power on the channel I was using for the dmx, the nodding buckets and dimmers went mad as a result of 48DC volts attacking there soft bits. Now the fatfrog seemed to get away with no scrapes but I'm down six 6 way dimmers and two mac kryptons. :cry: So fellow lampies ALWAYS RUN YOUR OWN SNAKE!!!! :!:

  12. The next time you have access to the movers, program all your pallets first then save the show to disk and write protect the disk. Then next time your stuck for time load the disk and bang it out.
  13. So thats what the manual is for! I was using it to stop the dimmer rack from rolling off the stage Very handy for that too 8O

    Get a flight case with a small "dog house" at the back Plenty of room for the PSU and getting disks in and out.
  17. Step1, Are all DMX addresses correct on the movers Step2, Are the fixtures patched on the desk, and the right personalitys loaded. Step3, Look at the movers and on the dmx input it should be pin 3 +, and pin 2 - If all above does'ent work, wipe the desk and reload and readdress everything again, it will save a "brain boil".

  19. Buy a cheep dmx hazer on www.thomann.de and be done with it.
  20. If its a cheep fitting the gobo wheel is the dimmer, not much you can do.
  21. Must have been hanging around the riggers too long, second hand smoke can still send you tripping 8O
  22. Are your scans and dimmer packs pin 3 hot and pin 2 cold, if not this could be the source of your errors.
  23. Try unpluging the dmx lines leaving the desk before you go into the dark depths of the super user, keeps all your lamps lit. Any help?
