    Radiance Hazer Problems

    Hey Guys, I've currently got an odd problem with a Radiance Hazer. It heats up and functions perfectly fine but after a period of time the green led starts flickering as if it is trying to re-heat again except that the pattern is off (The blinking seems more sporadic and weaker). When it does...

    Animation Wheel Woes

    Thank you all for the ideas! Finally found the problem. The Yoke PCB connection had loose pins going into the circuit board, once I removed it and looked at the bottom looks like someone did a shoddy repair job to it at some point so it was transmitting the correct voltage but not the right...

    Animation Wheel Woes

    Hello all! Another stumper for you all. I've got a Mac 2000 Performance II with some animation wheel problems. It spins just fine won't won't track on and off. Already put a new motor and checked the wheels and bearings that the belt wraps around and it all looks good. Also, on start up and...

    Moving Light Lamp Buzzing

    I've also seen slightly damaged reflectors that would cause this problem which would slightly vibrate causing a buzzing noise. However, if you have a warranty on it, send it back.

    Control/Dimming Stupid Ion Questions 2

    Also, in regards to everything else everyone has said. You could set up some "Work Lights" on stage out of any spare instruments you have that aren't used for the show/actual dimmer controlled work lights and record those to an Inhibitive Sub-master so as to not record those into the show...

    Hello All! + Martin MAC Woes

    Well after many hours of annoyance and frustration the final pin point for this light was in fact the fans. While they looked to be spinning at maximum capacity, they were in fact, not. Swapped out the fans for some ones from another 575 I had been working on and the fixture now is working...

    MAC 550 185 Degrees F???

    Thanks for your input! I've already swapped the main PCB and the issue is still persisting. Also the Thermal Sensor is reading 180 before the lamp is struck and once it is struck only stays on for 7 seconds before dousing itself and still reads at a consistent 185 degrees Fahrenheit. I've...

    MAC 550 185 Degrees F???

    No error message but when I go to the Info tab under the menu of the fixture and select fixture lamp sensor its reading at 180 F when it is lamped off. And yes I've already gone through and cleaned the fixture as well, sadly when I got to the theatre it's been doing this so I have no prior...

    MAC 550 185 Degrees F???

    Hello all, this is a bit of a tricky one. I have a Mac 550 here that thinks its temperature sensor is reading 185 Degrees Fahrenheit and therefore shutting off 7 seconds after lamp on. So far I've replaced the thermo-sensor, Thermo-switch, separated the feedback cables form the main power by...

    Hello All! + Martin MAC Woes

    I have tried a fresh lamp just in case already, and power is 208. I already have the magnetic ballast set to 208v and 60hz cycle.

    Hello All! + Martin MAC Woes

    I've been working on it on the ground right now and the error is kicking on 1 minute after the lamp has been struck consistently. The fans also have had a thorough cleaning as well all ready with no obstructions. As for the ballast not quite sure on that. The lamp seems to strike just fine...

    Hello All! + Martin MAC Woes

    Hhhmmmm. Potentially. It seems like all fans are spinning at capacity but a loose connection might be it.

    Hello All! + Martin MAC Woes

    Hello all! I'm a new member to Control Booth but have been visiting the site for years researching issues and dilemmas. I'm currently dealing with some pesky Martin MAC 575 Krypton's that are having HOT and LERR errors. Just wondering what anyone's thoughts might be. It only seems to happen...
