Hi guys,
So i have a week until opening night and i have a MAC 2K Performance II fixture throwing an error code that i just cant figure out. Its the effects wheel error(EFER) and whenever the light turns on the effects wheel doesn't calibrate to the correct home position so beam FX are all messed up. I have already replaced the rotational sensor and the magnet is still on the effects wheel. Does anyone have any ideas. I don't have the money or the time to send it out to get it repaired. Any help would be great.

If the FX wheel spins (FREELY), you've replaced the sensor, and the magnet is there, you have to track the problem backwards. Information from the sensor is not making it the other boards. Check all bimba connections are plugged in the correct orientation and wires are not cut somewhere. Try that.

Ok so after hours of working on it and fiddling with the wiring and the positioning of the sensor i finally got it to work. Thank you so much for your response.
