    Control/Dimming ETC ION Service Manual

    The other day my ION shut down. I called ETC and they advised me my hard drive needed to be reseated. They sent me this file with instructions on how to open it up. If its outdated I dont know maybe they sent me an old one. I do know I opened it up and fixed it. However I would not open it...

    Can A Fire Marshal Ban Haze???

    Its just not possible that a University would have HUNDREDS of firefighters and cops on duty. 4 men per truck/engine so that would mean that in his immediate area at the University there are a minimum of 25 trucks/engines. Thats just to make 100. Not even HUNDREDS. New York City only has 11,000...

    Control/Dimming ETC Express restarts self/ resets patch 1-to-1

    Ive actually had this same problem. I had to send the board in for repair and was told it was a faulty capacitor. Got the board back and have not had the issue again.

    Runway Rope Light Help

    I've done this a bunch of times and used clear tape. Just take your time when taking it off.

    Helllllllllp! on the Ion

    If the fader wing is not attached to the board check to see that the power plug in the back has not been pulled out. As far as the intensity of the LED's just just select the channel and give it a new value. Good luck Chris

    Macro for master cue hold?

    I may be reading this wrong but couldnt you just write a "stop" cue? You could put a follow with a time on it so it would take the next cue in time. So say you have a cue 4 with your effects running. Make a cue 5 with everything static. Record that with a follow time however long you want. Then...
