SOURCE: using 24 chauvet par 56

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:

Vox vt40 factory reset


Consider reading the Manual for this amp, it explains how to reset to factory with the VFS5 footpedal. Or with the power off ..hold down CH1 & CH4 then turn power on.. when the Bank & Channel leds start blinking.. then release the Channel buttons. Next press the Tap switch ... the bank & channel leds will change from blinking to lit. with in a few seconds it will enter preset mode.

Clipping always lit


  1. Make sure nothing is plugged in.
  2. Turn the GAIN, LEVEL, and FX knobs for each channel, counter-clockwise all the way.
  3. Bring the MAIN fader all the way down.
If the signal LED's above the MAIN fader are still lit, then the board most likely has a short in it and will require repair.

If the signal LED's are dark, repeat the following on each channel...

  1. Rotate GAIN clockwise until the mark on the knob is at "12 oclock".
  2. Rotate LEVEL clockwise until the mark on the knob is at "3 oclock"
  3. Raise the MAIN fader to "0".
  4. Check LED's - if they light up then the channel you are working on is "noisy" or has a short in it.
  5. Return GAIN, LEVEL, and MAIN to "all off".
  6. Repeat with next channel.

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?

I have numerous Chauvet 200b LED lighting fixtures. The problem I am having is: the "blue" LED"s on most every fixture are starting to go out. All the other colors are fine (it's just the...


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.

Casio keyboard lit up, no sound, no responses


Unplug for several minutes and try again.

If that doesn't work, look up the "factory reset" procedure for your particular model via google and follow that procedure. It usually involves holding certain buttons down before and during power up.

My akai ewi 4000s kind of froze


Please try to reset the ewi. You can do this like this: Shut down ewi. Press down the four little white buttons Level, FX, Setup and Trans. Keep them pressed while starting up the ewi.
This is a factory reset.

I hope this works for you.
