    Lycian Follow Spot Model 1238 Not Working

    I’m a high school student with a show less than a week out, and one of my spots stopped working. We replaced the bulb and checked the outlet it was plugged into to make sure it worked, but no luck. It won’t turn on. Does anyone know what I can do to fix it?
