So I recently took up an ITD gig, and the house has 9 Colorfore 12 M9s. They are powered into dimmers, that from what I can tell are not set to non dim, and are supplying regular ETC Sensor 3 power. They are patched into the second universe, and the fixture is patched as "Color Force 12 M9" with 8 parameters, and taking 4 dmx channels starting at 513, or 2/1.
When I recall the channels they are patched into, 101 thru 109, the output does not change. When I recall them by address, ex. addr 513 @ FL, I can bring up their individual RGBA channels. I am setting their intensity to full each time I recall them by channel, and messing around with the color picker, so I know there is output being sent to them.
They seem to be working on and off, as I did see them working when I first got here. I am wondering if the ballast is damaged from too much power/different waveform/dimming current. The unit is getting power, and is functioning at the instrument, meaning I am able to read the display on the unit, and adjust settings via the menu.
Any help would be appreciated.
