My venue has just received a shipment of new lighting gear including 12 PAR 64's. I don't have the brand in my head at the moment but I will try and get it tomorrow, might be something like DTS? Anyway, after running them up for 2min or so they started smoking but I assumed they would stop quickly. Wrong... I ran them for an hour today to burn off any dust or whatever but now I think it's the paint. They are quite literally billowing smoke sometimes and quite effectively hazed the room. Pity about the terrible smell... It actually got to the stage where I thought the fire alarm would go off, good thing the HVAC is very effective when configured to extract... Now the big question, is this normal? I'm assuming not, and should I be requesting to have them replaced?
