Open Question

Can't program Chauvet SlimPAR 64 RGBA

I program the light fixture for DMX mode and set the channel but it will not respond to my controller and acts as thought it is in some kind of automatic mode.

    Hey guys I think I figured out what is going on. Apparently DMX channel 1 isd used to put the SlimPAR 64 in slave mode. If you select DMX 4-CH or 8-CH and then select channel 1, the unit is in slave mode and will not repsond to a light controller. Thanks for checking it out for me.

SOURCE: using 24 chauvet par 56

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:

I am not sure if you are using a DMX controller or a standalone setting. If on standalone, sound triggers a random reversing, stopping and flashing mode. I am NOT sure that a stationary mode is available without being commanded by a DMX controller. If you are using a DMX controller get back to me and we will analyze what the problem is. If using a DMX controller, tell what address you are using and the length of the control cable.

DMX function appears to have failed, stand alone chase working fine. Controller panel functions well with other units. Item: DMX-4 dimmer pack.


Make sure you have the correct address dialed in for the unit and the mode.

If this is on a long cable, read about "terminating resistor" that is sometimes needed to avoid reflection on the DMX daisy chain that can cause random effects.

Try using a different address with the unit as well.

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.

The red and green control channels are linked. When I bring up just the red channel on the light board, both red and green channels move together. Same thing happens when I move just the green channel. ...


It appears from the manual that 00 is 100% full intensity just as you are observing... I can understand how you would be confused by the way it is written in the manual...

It also looks like you have to set chan 1 to be between 0 to 29 to select the RGB mode...and ALSO those color intensity values are "upside down", that is, 00 is full on for each color. and 255 is off.

These manuals can really be confusing.

Check if you may need to use a terminating resistor on the DMX chain. Sometimes digital reflections on the cable can cause random behavior.

Search "DMX termination" for explanation.

Also MAKE SURE you set the program mode to 021 (RGB).

It sounds like you might be in one of the automatic modes or sound triggered.

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.

Just got a Chauvet Trident and plugged it in and the moter tunrs left then right , then stops ? The LED's blink 1 time then that is it ?


The left right motion is when the motor calibrates its position. The unit is then waiting for input... try generating a loud noise... if the audio gain is up and it is configured for manual rather than DMX it should start.

Hi,
Just follow the details below to set your spotlight.
The TFX-FS360 utilizes 2 DMX control channels.
Channel 1 is for the colour.
Channel 2 is the dimmer.
1) Press the FUNCTION button until the DMX Mode LED turns on.
2) Press the UP or DOWN buttons until the starting channel address you desire is located on the digital display. eg 19
