Why do 000 show up on the display

Seems like slightly wiggling the DMX "in" connection will sometimes make it respond and go back to normal

"Wiggling the DMX in" ....are you using standard mic cables or cables designed for DMX? Also, have you swapped out the cable for another one to see if problems continue? I use mic cables without any problems BUT have heard of occasional issues with the smaller gauge wire. If you're using "lots" of lights, don't forget to terminate your DMX at "end-of-line."

How do i fix the usb port on oxygen 49 it seems to be loose . the keyboard powers on but is not being recognized.


The usual problem of these not being recognized is improper installaation or missing the driver software in the computer. The jacks sometimes appear loose but that can be normal. If you wiggle the jack and there is marginal connections, usually the computer will respond with the USB found and the disconnect tones. If the USB cable has been yanked, then solder could have been broken at the connector. Opening these units one has to be very careful to not damage the cables between the halves of the shell... also keeping track of the screws and type is a must.

I assume you have checked the serial digital waveform from the unit with an OSCILLOSCOPE which is the only way you can look at the DMX waveform. You will have a hard time syncronizing to the waveform. What voltage levels does the wave swing between? If you don't have an oscilloscope, then you have not REALLY looked at the waveform. In that case, USE a known good fixture CLOSE to this controller using a DIFFERENT cable to see if a single fixture works close to the unit. If it does, SUSPECT that your cabling has a break or short someplace. Also check if your daisy chain DMX cable MIGHT require a terminator resistor at the end... Read up on DMX termination.

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.

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:

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.

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.

Does the Eliminator E109 Lights have a DMX connector in the back?


This unit does NOT have DMX control It is only sound activated. If you want to turn it on and off under DMX, you will need to use a DMX relay box.

I am trying to connect a Chauvet Followspot 400G to an Elation Sc


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
Regards
Jon
