Chauvet uses a 16 amp Triac to control the power to many of the 120 volt lamps in their products. The Triac MAY be blown in your unit. If a bulb shorts, this blows the Triac.

I use Diigikey,com part number 497-2397-5 as the exact replacement. The generic number is BTA16-600BRG

Look for a part with this number on an aluminum plate and test the device. Also look for loose wires in the unit.

My sound active mode is not working correctly. it goes at a fast pace even turned all the way down.


If you're sure you're in sound mode then it sounds like yet another faulty chauvet unit. Buy something from a better manufacturer and you've got a chance but in our experience Chauvet are a rule unto themselves and the kit is not worth buying. We have had nothing but trouble with them and no longer buy their kit no matter how tempting the price.

They are not worth trying to fix, if you really like this unit you can get a secondhand one for about 25GBP or find one from a decent manufacturer or even better how about a USB interface to DMX for your PC?

The bulb and fuse keeps blowing out at the same time


Verify that you have the correct fuses and lamp. install the fuse(and only the fuse,no lamp) and fire it up.listen for the fan.if the fuse holds and the fan runs, you probably have an issue with the dimmer on the main board. Chauvet may be able to send you a new one, but this model was discontinued in 2012, which may parts hard to get. Good Luck!

I have four 200b lights that i must have connected to a wrong device and all 4 blew fuses. I replaced the fuses but they continue to blow as soon as I plug them in.Any suggestions would greatly appreciate.


first need to know if the other device you connected it is with dmx and if not, the most likely need replacement on the circuit 8 pin controller dmx its easy to know the locate its the circuit most close to the input signal, I hope you test the input volt regulators and are well, if not also need more data presents fault.

Light is dead all fuses are good.. Maybe bad transformer ?


Probably NOT the transformer as most of these have switching type supplies. A Chauvet unit I have would not light and the problem was the socket for the Halogen bulb. The socket had burned and the contacts were so burned they would not contact the bulb. Worse, you can't even see the problem as the socket is ceramic and has a mica like cover. Replacement of the socket fixed the problem. In the Chauvet unit they had a very cleaver lamp power supply. That threw me off because there was no voltage at the socket... until I put the Oscilloscope on it... then there were tiny spikes. It turns out the supply sends tiny spikes out and IF the lamp is there and contacts are good, the supply senses the load and the feedback starts driving the supply to full output. I wasn't able to see the burned contact until I uncapped the socket. Just maybe you have a similar problem. These 250 watt Halogens with the tiny pins carring 11 amps just are ******* the contacts in the sockets.

What kind of fuse do i need for it


The unit uses two 300 watt halogen lamps so it draws around 5 amps for just the lights and a small amount for the motor. The E108 is a carbon copy of the Chauvet Double Derby that used the halogen bulbs. My Chauvet is marked as using a 7 amp fuse for 120 volt operation or a 5 amp when used on 230 volts.

PLEASE open the unit if the fuse blew as it is likely there is an internal problem if nothing more than a light bulb that shorted as it burned out. There are slip rings and the sockets that need to be inspected if the fuse did blow.

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.

Have 2 Chauvet Intimidator Spots. 1 no longer projects light and the bulb is not the issue. It powers up, goes thur its start up routine but will not light the bulb


This unit got a 24volt lamps that came from a transformer. Usually the ceramic contact of the lamp get damaged and corroded after some time and can be replace. You should test at the same time that the voltage is allright with a multimeter. Most sound shop keep such ceramic in stock because its always broken....
