Chauvet Light Color Wheel not working

I have 4 Chauvet Omega 1 155 lights and 1 of the 4 is not working correctly. I have the lights set up to work in sync but one one of the lights the color wheel is not displaying the correct effect. The light will move in sync with the others but the color wheel scheme is not the same. I can also hear the wheel clicking as if stuck. Any suggestions?

I bought one of these new for our church and one of the colors would not work. I opened it up and found the control board. There was a line of diodes that were on the board. I found one of them bad. It had split into. It was a signal diode. I think you might be able to get these at radio shack. Use a small soldering iron and electronic solder( there is a difference.) Take the old one out and put the new one in and make sure you get them in the right way.(because it won't work or it will burn up) Hope this is helpful.

My sound active mode is not working correctly. it goes at a fast pace even turned all the way down.


If you're sure you're in sound mode then it sounds like yet another faulty chauvet unit. Buy something from a better manufacturer and you've got a chance but in our experience Chauvet are a rule unto themselves and the kit is not worth buying. We have had nothing but trouble with them and no longer buy their kit no matter how tempting the price.

4 200b chauvet lights stopped working ,blowing the internal fuses when plugged in.


It is never a good idea using LED lights with Triac switches, which I assume if what will be in your remote control unit. Good old fashioned relay units are fine but there is often a problem with triac and thyristor controls as they do not expect the type of load that LED lights present and they often do not switch on properly causing all sorts of issues including burning out (invisibly) interal circuitry.

I accidentally changed Dip switches and light has power but no fan and no light ..have I blown a fuse ..thanks


Not likely blown fuse. Verify the correct dip switch settings... SOMETIMES the switches don't quite move completely so make sure they are completely one way or the other.

My chauvet Elan stopped working. I cant find a power switch and am not even sure how to check whats wrong


"Elan stopped working doesn't give us much to go on... does it light? Do you hear anything in it? Are you activating it from DMX or as standalone?

Read about terminating the chain with a resistor 120 ohms. If your run has appreciable length, a termination MAY be necessary to avoid digital reflections that can corrupt the message between the control and the lights. Having separate power sources CAN subject the units to "ground bounce" that can also corrupt the digital control. You need to power all the units from a single source or conditioner if possible. Another solution might be to use one of the DMX radio links which would isolate the ground problem. Another fix you MIGHT try is to get some of the clamsheel ferrite devices that clamp around the wires. Put these around the digital cables, not the power cords:

When i turn on the brand new double derby it works for 2 seconds and then goes off, what could this be and how do i fix it please Lily


It is probably in the wrong mode. Since the light can be set for automatic, sound, and DMX we have NO idea what mode you are trying to run. Refer to page 8 and 9 in your manual for correct dipswitch setting for whatever mode you are running.

For eye protection, the lights must keep moving or they will shut down... which is likely what is happening in your case. If you put in auto mode or sound mode they should keep on. If in DMX mode and the mode does not command movement all the time, they will extinguish.
