    The light fixture is a Lithonia Lighting LED. When I installed it last month the light would come on and worked great at illuminating the kitchen. Then all of a sudden it started flashing on and off. The pattern is approximately 1/2 a second on, 1/2 second off.

SOURCE: All 3 Error lights are flashing (4 if you count the GO button)!!

When all lights flash it's a service problem. You press and hold the go button and see what lights are on then.error light means main PCB failure, Toner light means fuser failure, drum light means laser failure. Toner and error light means main motor error, drum plus error light means its a fan failure.

How to stop the flashing (strobing) lights inside both the fridge and freezer?

I had the same problem but instead of throwing a couple hundred dollars away I decided to let my lights stay on all the time inside the fridge. All I did was pop the filter switch out so it wouldn't trigger when the door was closed. No more flickering and the hole doesn't irritate me like the rave party inside my fridge did????

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.

My GE 7-Day Digital Timer model 15086 flashes on

I just bought one today and installed it. It does the same thing - flashes the lights off and on. After some research on the net, it seems that the problem is that an old house is wired with two pole wiring and the new fixtures, (timers included) are 3 pole. The conclusion I have found is that it will not work in a 2 pole wired house. There supposedlly are timers available for 2 pole wiring. I hope this helps. If you find out anything different, please let me know.

Colorlogic Pool Light flashes like strobe

These swimming pool lights have a power-cycled feature. THis means that you can power down the light and then power back up in 10 seconds and the light pattern will change. It sounds like your light is not cycling properly. Power it down for a full 60 seconds. This will reset the power cycle. Then try turning it on and off in 10 second intervals. If it doesn't reset, you bulb may only be partially functioning and it may need to be replaces.

Tradewind range hood- model PSL736: both lights out, fan works

The screws by the lights probably only hold the fixture in place. If you took the screws out you would only get access to the fixture and maybe some wiring. If you have already replaced the lights you can assume its not the fixtures. Not likely both fixtures failed at the same time. The common problems would be the light switch. You would need to gain access to the switch and then check that for power.

You already know house power is good because the fan is working, But since both lights failed and new bulbs don't fix the problem it would most likely be a switch.

According to their website it looks like that whole front panel should come off including the fixtures and the switches.


Once you remove that you can check the wiring harness for the lights. You may also see wire nuts on the harness double check those as well.
