SOURCE: Have 2 Chauvet Intimidator Spots. 1 no longer

This unit got a 24volt lamps that came from a transformer. Usually the ceramic contact of the lamp get damaged and corroded after some time and can be replace. You should test at the same time that the voltage is allright with a multimeter. Most sound shop keep such ceramic in stock because its always broken....

My Chauvet Intimidator Spot LED 350 dj lights glitch whenever I DMX them. Why? They work perfect on automatic mode.


Have you got a terminator on the far end? If not this is probably the problem.

The bulb and fuse keeps blowing out at the same time


Verify that you have the correct fuses and lamp. install the fuse(and only the fuse,no lamp) and fire it up.listen for the fan.if the fuse holds and the fan runs, you probably have an issue with the dimmer on the main board. Chauvet may be able to send you a new one, but this model was discontinued in 2012, which may parts hard to get. Good Luck!

Chauvet Intimidator DMX680


The lamp power in these is a VERY clever switching supply that does NOT start driving untill a load is placed on it. It tickles the lamp and when relay closes it senses the load and fires up to typically 240 watts. The COMMON problem is that with a known good lamp installed, the socket contacts have burned and do not contact the pins of the lamp. The socket pins are hidden beneath a micalex cover and the fact they are burned away is NOT obvious. Replace the socket with one rated at 12 amps. These are hard to find but they are available.

Intimidator light wont come on


I have 6 of these in my lighting rig, and the most common problem has been a bad bulb socket. If your bulbs end up with corroded or blackened terminals, you should replace the socket. The black/corroded stuff can cause the connection to become intermittent, sometimes so badly it entirely doesn't work.

The other common problem I've seen involves a resistor on the circuit board that powers the light bulb. I believe it's R2 - regardless it's the only big one. It's value is .5 ohms at 3 watts. Be sure to use a flameproof resistor when replacing it, and most likely your fixture will light up again.

We have 2 intimidator 250 intelligent lights and one of them is "stuck" on blue. We use a program called FreeStyler 512 to control them. We have restarted the computer, unplugged the lights, and...


We can only guess at the cause without tearing into the unit. My educated guess is that either the cable to the color step motor has either come loose or a wire is broken in the cable. SInce the wires go through a flexure point, that MIGHT be where the problem is... the only way to tell is to do detailed troubleshooting of the unit.

Light is dead all fuses are good.. Maybe bad transformer ?


Probably NOT the transformer as most of these have switching type supplies. A Chauvet unit I have would not light and the problem was the socket for the Halogen bulb. The socket had burned and the contacts were so burned they would not contact the bulb. Worse, you can't even see the problem as the socket is ceramic and has a mica like cover. Replacement of the socket fixed the problem. In the Chauvet unit they had a very cleaver lamp power supply. That threw me off because there was no voltage at the socket... until I put the Oscilloscope on it... then there were tiny spikes. It turns out the supply sends tiny spikes out and IF the lamp is there and contacts are good, the supply senses the load and the feedback starts driving the supply to full output. I wasn't able to see the burned contact until I uncapped the socket. Just maybe you have a similar problem. These 250 watt Halogens with the tiny pins carring 11 amps just are ******* the contacts in the sockets.

Internal fuse blew and is soldered in and I can't read what is the voltage and amperage of the internal fuse on the circuit board?


The ratings are normally stamped into the end caps of the fuse. Sometimes they are a bit hard to see. Make sure you repair the cuase of the failure before replacing.

What kind of fuse do i need for it


The unit uses two 300 watt halogen lamps so it draws around 5 amps for just the lights and a small amount for the motor. The E108 is a carbon copy of the Chauvet Double Derby that used the halogen bulbs. My Chauvet is marked as using a 7 amp fuse for 120 volt operation or a 5 amp when used on 230 volts.

PLEASE open the unit if the fuse blew as it is likely there is an internal problem if nothing more than a light bulb that shorted as it burned out. There are slip rings and the sockets that need to be inspected if the fuse did blow.

Have a q-mix chauvet stage light goes thru all motions but light wont come on even changed bulbs and fuses alright


Chauvet uses a 16 amp Triac to control the power to many of the 120 volt lamps in their products. The Triac MAY be blown in your unit. If a bulb shorts, this blows the Triac.

I use Diigikey,com part number 497-2397-5 as the exact replacement. The generic number is BTA16-600BRG

Look for a part with this number on an aluminum plate and test the device. Also look for loose wires in the unit.
