Before jumping to conclusions, one should do some testing. It is posssible that you are having a DMX data error. If your lines are long, please review the need for a termination resistor at the far end of a DMX chain. The reflections of the data pulses can confuse or cause errors. Test a unit up close to your controller so the cable is short. If that magically works, install a terminating resistor.

Beyond this, electronic testing needs to be done. I did find in a Chauvet LX5 a bad solder joint at a connector that brings the power for, in my case, the green LED's. There will be surface mounted resistors on the back of the board that limit the current to groups of LED's.

If the whole fixture loses the blue at once, either suspect a DMX error or the driver in the fixture.

First, you are going to need a lighting controller, (better ones can connect to your PC/Apple);
Second, you will need to run RS485 serial cables (250 kbaud) between the controller and the light unit.
Make sure to use a better controller unit, as it will assign channels for you (simpler).

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.

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.

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:

Everything works on the unit except the lights.


I have repaired several effects lighting units and MANY have connectors dislodged or even the LED module knocked out of alignment or its mounting. USUALLY the problem will be obvious when you open the unit. If it happens to be an electronic problem, it probably will not be a DIY repair as there is little documentation and schematics.
