Turn the set screws all way in.
Back them out 1 1/4 turn start it up let it warm up then adjust them in up to 1/8.
Depending on how it runs.

Homelite 26vt Mighty Lite carb settings

Setting up the carb right on a trimmer is like setting one up on an RC gas operated car. It takes someone with a good year,and a lot of experience doing it. If youre new at it,youre not just going to be able to get it tuned,well you could,if you want to spend a few hours. Just take it to someone who does it,they wont charge you much and it will save you a lot of aggrevation.

Homelite gas trimmer will not run without half choke and throttle

You need to disassemble the carb. and spray with carb. cleaner. If you need tips on how to do this, just let me know. You may need a new carb. kit as well, but we won't know that until you first perform the first step, or if the carb. parts are more than 3 years old. If they are, then go ahead and buy the carb. kit and replace the parts.

Trimmer wont stay runnning when I move the choke off full.

most likely its a homelite
Will it run at half choke?
Spark plug gapped .025-.030?
You did mix 2 cycle oil and gas? 40:1 not outboard motor oil
Check your fuel lines closely move them to make sure none are broken?
Check your primer bulb?
Make sure you look in side your fuel tank and make sure you can see your filter is still intact with the fuel line?
Ethanol fuel? 10%or less?
Stabilizer in your fuel?
low and high end adj. screws may need tweeking?
If they are capped you may or may not need a special tool to access
If they are not capped use a small screwdriver "note SMALL" turn and count the number of turns it takes to bottom out each adj screw marked H and L do not force once they both stop turning clockwise STOP!
Now bring them both back out the number of turns you counted with an additional approx. 1/4 turn.
Start trimmer as you would again and see what takes place. Better same or worse?

You may end up needing a carb. rebuild kit or diaphram kit?
Thats what i know for now maybe this may help or maybe not?
