I just purchased three sets of cascading icile lights led 12ct ...only three on second string will work....third set will not work due to second secon set issue...target is sold out...my tree is half

When I did a test to see if they worked I had to lightly tap to get them to light....now when I moved (tapped) I could only get three to light up. Third set although it works will not light due to second set issue. Apparently you are able to due three consecutive sets...but not in my case!

It is possible that the transformer does not have enough watts to power the last lights or you may have a connection problem, my guess is that you have too many lights on one transformer. Try hooking up another transformer or see what the wattage is of each bulb and add them up to see if you are over the transformer wattage.

SOURCE: Christmas light string was half lit. Mid way between the unlit section we found a loose bulb. We replaced it, but now half the string blinks and the other half remains lit. Help!

There could possibly be a short in the wiring. Have you checked for any exposed wires or holes in the plastic covering? Moisture could have gotten in there and shorted something out

Are the old hallmark motion ornaments compatible with the newer LED light strings?


Although you can't connect old (prior to 2009) Hallmark ornaments to LED light strings, Hallmark has addressed this problem by releasing a new solution called the "Legacy Cord". This new technology will power up to 4 magic ornaments and can be purchased at any Hallmark Gold Crown store. On a cautionary note, please be aware that this new technology may not work as well as the old incandescent light strings did.

I need a simple wiring diagram to turn on 40 red leds and 40 green leds on a 9volt battery


Two ways to do it..........

One is a Series circuit, the other is a Parallel circuit.

Of course you can also use a Series/Parallel circuit.

Each LED has a Positive ( + ) connection, and a Negative ( - ) connection.

A) Series circuit:

One side of Switch is connected to Positive ( + ) of the Battery.
The other side goes to the Positive ( + ) of the first LED light.

Then the LED's are connected together in a Series.

Negative of first LED light to Positive of second LED light.
Negative of second LED light to Positive of third LED light.
Negative of third LED light to Positive of Fourth LED light.

And so on, and so on, until you come to No.40 LED light.
It's Negative connects to the Battery.

ONE LED goes bad, and none of them will work.
Old Christmas light strings are set up this way.

B) Parallel Circuit:

Switch to Battery - Positive ( + )
Wire goes from Switch, to 1st LED light's Positive connection ( + )
Then wire from 1st LED positive, to 2nd LED Positive ( + )
Then wire from 2nd LED Positive to 3rd LED Positive.

And so on, and so on, until you reach the 40th LED.

Then wire comes from Negative ( - ) of Battery, to Negative of 1st LED.
Wire from 1st LED to Negative of 2nd LED.
Wire from 2nd LED to Negative of 3rd LED.
Wire from 3rd LED to Negative of 4th LED.

And so on, and so on, until you reach 40th LED.
Wire connects to Negative of 40th LED. Then a wire connects from 40th LED Negative, and goes to Negative of Battery.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Series_and_parallel_circuits

Series Circuit;

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Series_circuit.svg

Over to the Left side you see the Battery symbol. There is no switch in this circuit.

In the Battery symbol, the Longer line represents the Positive pole.
(Positive connection)

Resistors are represented by the squiggly lines. In place of them put your LED lights.

A Switch would go in-between the Battery, and first LED light; on the Positive side.
(ALWAYS put the Switch on the Positive side. Can explain in detail if you need)

[The Top line in the diagram, is the Positive 'wire' ]

http://www.autoshop101.com/trainmodules/elec_circuits/circ114.html

Parallel Circuit:

http://www.autoshop101.com/trainmodules/elec_circuits/circ122.html

In a Parallel circuit, if one LED light goes out, the rest stay on.

The second halves of my strings of Merry Brite christmas lights don't work, but the first halves DO. Can this be fixed?


Now that the holidays are over I suppose I could use the 3 yr. limited warranty to get a repair/replacement by sending them to:
Everstar Merchandise Co., Ltd.,
7180 Troy Hill Drive, Suite L.,
Elkridge MD 21075
Along with: lights, UPC code from original package, sales receipt with proof of date purchased, and your name & mailing address.(Within 6-8 weeks a new or repaired set will be returned.)

Hi, i have a acoustic guitar and i am trying to tune it but i do not know how to use the Matrix Chromatic Tuner SR-1050


Hi
Simply turn the tuner on using the power button. Play an open string note close to the tuner (no more than about 1/2 metre away) - for instance the low E on string 6.
The built in microphone will pick up the sound and, if your guitar is reasonably close to being in tune the led light labelled 'E' will illuminate on the lower scale on the tuner along with one of the three other leds to indicate whether the note is flat (b), in tune (green) or sharp (#).
Due to harmonics any or all of these three leds may flash but it is the one that is on the most that matters.
Adjust the tuning peg until the green is on constantly when you play the string.
Move on to the next string
Note - if the string is more than a semitone sharp or flat a different light may flash (e.g if the low E string is 3/4 of a tone flat the D light will come on).
If you wish to tune your guitar to another instrument that is not at perfect pitch (and perhaps cannot be easily adjusted - like a pipe organ) you can use the calibrate button to adjust the setting of the tuner. This temporary recalibration will be lost when the tuner is turned off.

I had a problem getting the code,to work with tvsignature2000,can you e-mail me the code for this,


Actually there is no code specified in URC-3021 manual to work with Signature.
But still we can try

If your device does not respond to the remote control after trying all codes
listed for your brand, or if your brand is not listed at all, try searching for
your code.
NOTE: Before performing a code search for a DVD player or a VCR, turn on the device and
insert the required media.
For example, to search for a code for your TV:
1. On the remote control, press TV once.
2. Press and hold SET until the LED (red light) blinks twice,
then release SET.
3. Enter 9 - 9 - 1.The LED will blink twice.
4. Aim the remote control at the TV and slowly alternate
between pressing POWER and TV. Stop when the TV turns off
(after pressing POWER). If the device does not have a Power
key, you can substitute another function, such as digits 0 ~ 9 ,
CH up, or PLAY).
NOTE: In the search mode, the remote control will send IR codes from
its library to the selected device, starting with the most popular code
first.
5. To lock in the code, press and release SET.The LED will
blink twice.
6. To search for the codes of your other devices, repeat steps
1 through 5, but substitute the appropriate device key for
the device you are searching for.

If you have set up the remote control using the Searching For Your Code procedure
as above, you may need to find out which four-digit code is operating
your equipment. For example, to find out which code is operating your
TV:
1. On the remote control, press TV once.
2. Press and hold SET until the LED (red light) blinks twice,
then release SET.
3. Enter 9 - 9 - 0.The LED will blink twice.
4. To view the code for the first digit, press 1 once.Wait 3
seconds, count the LED blinks (e.g., three blinks = 3) and
write down the number in the leftmost box in the TV
code boxes on page 8.
NOTE: If a code digit is "0", the LED will not blink.
5. Repeat step 4 (on the previous page) three more times for
remaining digits.Use 2 for the second digit, 3 for the third
digit, and 4 for the fourth digit.Write down the code digits
in the remaining TV code boxes on page 8.
6. To check for codes of other devices, repeat steps 1
through 5

Please describe your issue or question (*) Last year we bought four of the Gemmy Color Chasing Light Show strings with the multi-color LED tear-drop shaped bulbs (#0293751). All four strings worked...


tombonw, I noticed this problem last year also, did the same string replacement as you, but by seasons end the new strings I bought had the same problem with a few doing something different. Did you ever find a good solution or hear from anyone else?

Need Scientific Atlanta 8300HD DVR code


You can follow the two methods I have explained below:


AUTO SEARCH FOR CODE
To program your remote in Auto Search Mode, first turn on the device you wish to program and point the remote toward it.

Then press and hold the SET and POWER buttons until the LED turns on.

Then press the device key ( CATV or RCVR) .

The LED will flash once.

Then press the CH+ button.

Then hold the POWER button for about two seconds until the LED turns on.
Release the POWER button and the LED will flash slowly. Your remote is searching through all of the codes. Continue to point the remote at the device until your device responds.
If your device turns off, turn it back on and press the CH+ button on your remote. Then press the POWER button and CH+ button alternately until the device turns off and the code is correct. Press the ENTER button to confirm and store the code. The LED will flash three times and then turn off.


If the above is not helpful then try manually searching for code:

First, press the device button on your remote.

Then press and hold the SET button. While holding the SET button, press 1 to find the first digit, 2 to find the second digit or 3 to find the third digit.

The LED flashing time will stand for each code number. If it doesn’t flash, it will stand for zero.

For example, the TV code you are trying to find is 102.

Press the SET button and 1. The LED will flash one time.

Press the SET button and 2. The LED will not flash.

Press the SET button and 3. The LED will flash two times.

Press the ENTER button to confirm and store the code. The LED will flash three times and then turn off.

Hope it helps to find your code. Thank you for using fixya!

Gemmy light show lollipops not working right


The gemmy light shows are amazing when working correctly. BUT that may be for one season only. I bought the white trio set of Christmas trees after one season the trees turned brown, tried to get in touch gemmy. Two days later my reply was I improperly stored my trees. All the other set of trees I've seen turn brown after one season. As far as I know gemmy quit making the white trees. Long story short they did't warranty my trees, as for the lollipops 4 or 5 light systems aren't interchangeable, I tried to replace the led in my 5 light system with a led from a 4 light system the led worked but wouldn't sync. When trying to make repairs you must use parts from alike sets of the same year models, alike models from different years don't work. Also when changing led circuit boards solder the wires the way you take them off or you'll short the board out. If you have bad sets of lights you can make repairs if they are alike.
