It is probably in the wrong mode. Since the light can be set for automatic, sound, and DMX we have NO idea what mode you are trying to run. Refer to page 8 and 9 in your manual for correct dipswitch setting for whatever mode you are running.

For eye protection, the lights must keep moving or they will shut down... which is likely what is happening in your case. If you put in auto mode or sound mode they should keep on. If in DMX mode and the mode does not command movement all the time, they will extinguish.

I need help my new dm10 mod comes up with calibration fail when I turn it on even with nothing plugged into it. I have updated the firmware it just wont talk to the kit at all


you have to make sure the red crash 1 is on the cymbal w the choke zone on it and plugged into crash one on the module. crash 2 goes in the cymbal w no choke and plugs into perc 2 on the module. also make sure the ride zones are plugged in to the corresponding zone on the module. bottom line double check all connections and reference the setup guide if u still have it. i had the same issue.

The tuner on this is weird. It requires three presses of the tune button. Read your manual... One press turns on tuner and passes audio till it times out. A second turns on tuner and kills audio... the third press restores audio... Others have had the same problem understanding this three mode thing and the timeout in the first two modes is confusing when sound disappears.

That is working backwards from what it should be. I suspect a wiring error. Since this is a recent purchase, do NOT risk voiding your warranty. There isn't any real good documentation on the tuner.
I am not sure which tuner you have HOWEVER with one type, the FIRST press will turn on the tuner with the sound going out as well till the tuner goes off. The SECOND press silences the sound and is tuner only, the THIRD press turns off tuner and passes the sound. This is different than a lot of tuners and you will need to do three presses to restore sound instead of the usual two.

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.

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.

The problem with my marshall ma100h amp is that out of the box brand new it stopped working within a few days. Earlier I turned on the amp power switch and let it warm up. About a minute later I kicked on...


Brand new? Take it for warranty repair IMMEDIATELY... don't mess with it !!!

The only thing for you to check is that you did not turn on "STANDBY" as this shuts down the power amp and the capacitors will bleed off and sound will fade. Try switch in both states before complaining

ONLY use the amp in STANDBY for a brief period (20 seconds) to let the tubes warm up... Leaving in STANDBY for a long period straains the input filter capacitor. If you are done with using the amp, turn it off...

No vocal sound


It sounds like the guitar level input to the unit is too low.

NOTE: With this product you MUST use an amplified or electric guitar that has a preamp within it.

If you have a straight guitar that does not have an amp in it, buy a preamp to first run the guitar through.
