I have a motion sensor light that I have no instruction manual. The light has three wires running out of the sensor. Black, red and white. The bulb has only two wires running from it. The way I have it wired right now, with all the blacks and whites connected to each other makes the light go on but the sensor won't turn it off. I do not have the red wire connected to anything.
I have also tried the black from house to black from sensor. The red from sensor to the black for the bulb, the the white from the bulb, white from sensor and white from the house all connected. This doesn't turn on the fixture. Can anyone help?

They will, but i don't know if i would trust them. The white wire is the thermistor, its what the charger inside uses to monitor the battery temperature. So in case something goes wrong with the charging it can sense the overheating and stop trying to charge the battery. Will the battery work, of course, unless the Nextbook requires the temp sensor input to allow the battery to be used, some devices won't recognize a battery without a temp sensor input and will say there is a battery fault because its missing, and some will work with it but may or may not even charge it because it doesn't see the temp input when it tries to charge. Best suggestion i could make is try it, but i also would suggest you get a proper battery for it, lithium batteries are scary enough when they fail, not having that safety could be even worst.
The two wires are meant to be connected to the 120 volt source. The box or the papers with the transformer should tell you which two of the three wires provides the 12 volt output. If not connect the two wires to the 120V source - Be CAREFUL! - 120V is dangerous. Then try, one at a time, touching each of the three combinations of wires (1&2, 1&3, 2&3) to the contacts on a 12 V incandescent lamp (very bottom and threaded side) the 12V pair will give you the brightest light. The other two are 6v.
I can't address the 7 blade connector without more information. I suggest that you go to a place that sells trailer parts.
Not knowing anything about your trailer I don't know if a 2 amp (2000 ma) transformer will supply enough current to do the job.
just plug in the wire to socket..
switch it on ...
you are dont...
if it is a computer power supply , then you have to short two wires..
on supply wiring you will see a green wire... just short it with a black wire...
you can connect these two wires easily by a paper clip...
your power supply with switch on... its fan may not start but when you put load on it.. fan will also start..
red wire is of 5V
yellow wire is of 12V
and black wire is Ground....
You are talking about a motion detector attached to some type of light I presume. Your numbers mean nothing, I'm sorry to day.
Very first consideration, you do have it correctly wired, right? White to white - black to black - green to green and ground. The red goes to the lamp black wire, right??? (Light White goes to neutral (white line))
I am very familiar with motion detecting lights, working at a large resort at the seashore.
Two conditions that must exist for this light to come on ... it must be dark and there must be a motion. There should be two adjustments on your detector; one is for sensitivity and the other is time the device should remain on.
Dark ... not just sundown ... are there other lights in the area that may cause your detector to think it is day time?
Sensitivity. On minimum sensitivity, your detector is nearly blind to any but the closest movements. On maximum, it will probably see bats flying by. You must adjust to meet your needs.
Does it have a warranty? I dont know. You would have to check the information that came with your light.
I hope this information helps you ... Positive comments are appreciated.

I really don't understand why these lights are so failure prone and I usually return at least 8 out of 10 back to the store but I've installed a lot of them. If its Zenith brand the light may need to be reset by turning the power off at the switch or breaker for 1-2 min then back on. Then check the motion sensitivity dial if its maxed out turn it back and set it to 75% full also the photo eye may be getting light from the light making it think its daytime at night so try to reaim the photo eye if possible away from the light source that should fix most problems or 20% of them but if you still have problems return it to the store or ask for their advise. Hope this helps I've seen a lot of junk motion lights in my time they are troublesome at times.
