Power comes on, but the lights dont

I can ONLY give you suggestion.... Note that most of the high power laser devices have safety interlocks to insure the beam is moving before turning laser on. Verify any dip switch settings to make sure they are in a suitable mode. If the laser comes on during test, ASSUME that a setting is wrong. I do not have this unit so my suggestion is general based on experience with other devices.

We have a starball led and it lights up but don't turn!!!!

If it's been used a lot, the motor brushes are probably worn out.

I have an American DJ Hyper Gem LED light and have used it at 4-5 dances...its okay in small halls, but I have a friend that also bought one and his is super bright and throws the effect far, mine does...

Uncover it... you will probably find that some of the LED's are not lighting. OFTEN soldering on circuit boards OR a bad LED in a string kills several like Christmas strings. More than this you need to be somewaht adept at electronics to repair it.

Hi there, I have an american DJ Dekker LED. I plugged it in and put it into Sound active / sound to light mode. I'm getting response to sound because I can hear and see the fan inside the unit...

I have OFTEN found that a cable has come loose. Open the unit and look for such a situation. Also make sure the motion (probably a disc) is working/rotating since with high power LED devices, they have interlocks for safety to keep beams moving.

Blue bank has a led that is bad when using the lights for more than 30 minutes the blue color goes out. i open the unit and just touch the blue led pack in the back on the solder led part and they turn on...

I have seen bad solder of the pins of the connector on the board with the LED's. Reflow the solder and verify there are no solder bridges. ALSO verify that the circuit traces near these pins have not been lifted or broken.

I am having trouble running an american dj quad gem in dmx mode. I have other lights that are working fine.

If by chance teh light is on the end of a long DMX cable run, read about putting a terminating resistor at the end of the chain. You say you are having "trouble"... that doesn't tell us anything that we could help you with.

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.

MOST DJ lights are not protected to be used outside in weather.

Other considerations are visibility from highways and also aircraft. Certain lights could cause a problem for these two scenarios.

When outside, often the distances are longer and the light drops off as the square of the distance.

Laser types require fog to get the effect and there really isn't a way short of getting the weather to cooperate and give you fog to get those effects.

Between the laws of physics and the construction of lighting intended for interior use, what you are asking for is just not easily obtained.

The inability to control ambient lighting outside is a real problem. Many of the DJ things require a fairly darkened room. The sky glow from a city is enough to kill off the effects.
