Question about Chauvet Minspot Rgbw Min Spot Led Mini Moving Head Dj

1 Answer

Hi my name is Mike and I have a problem with my mini spot. It was working fine for about 2 weeks. Now right when i start, instead of it going through its intitial 10 second or so boot up (with the red led status active) it just goes straight to the light being on and i can't seem to reset it. When i try to manually get it to do a "system reset or system restore or factory default," it just starts doing it for about a second but then goes right back to just the plain old light being on and not functioning as far as it moving at all. Also, when the light is on, i cannot get the led screen to work as there is nothing lighting up within it. Only when it briefly starts to do a reset, does the led screen briefly say "system reset". Besides that i cannot get it to function properly, it just sits in one spot with the light on and is not moving around like it should. Please Help!!!

    no unfortunately i have not been able to do it myself. I called the manufacturer and they told me it was okay to try and open to shell to check the connection of the electronics inside. I bought the 2 units second hand so the warranty is no longer good on them im pretty sure. So i opened them (about 16 screws) and looked inside, still couldnt figure out any problem. I even had my friend, who is an electrician, check it out, and he couldnt seem to find any problems whatsoever. So as of right now, i will problem take them back to the Chauvet service center in ft. lauderdale. I live about 30 mins away from there, so hopefully they will be able to help me out! Let me know if you hear of any ways to fix OUR problem because my light show is not complete without both of my units in perfect working condition.

Peavey xr1200 blows 8A fuse after about one second. Old mixer, seldom moved, has worked fine for years

If it blows a fuse when powered on, it has a dead short somewhere. Old units do this when the capacitors (filters) get old and dry out. These create dead short circuits. I recommend going through the unit and change out the bad ones. They can usually be spotted easily. They look like little cans glued on the board with an "X" on top. They are usually blue, gray, or black. The X on top is a weak spot allowing the top to open or pop up when they go bad.

Low volume from Fishman Loudbox Mini mic input, using brand new XLR cable and dynamic mic. Mic works just fine on instrument input using a Hi-Z cable so problem is not mik

I have seen defective XLR cables so check it with an ohmmeter. It is possible the mic input preamp has been damaged. If that is the case, the unit will have to be repaired.

Hello! I bought the mini strobe light a couple weeks ago and it worked fine when i tested it out a couple times. but my party is this saturday and i tried it out again today and it was running and then...

With risk that warranty will be voided, you could open it and look for problems. Most of these have a speed control so if yours does, vary that to insure it is not near the real slow end of the range.

Hi. i cant get the sound to come through continuosly when using the kaoss pad, only when i put it on hold. is there a way round this?

You need to put the Mini Kaoss Pad in direct mode.
Hold down Memory A and press Memory B once, use the dial to select DIR instead of SND.
Hold down Memory A and press Memory B once again to return to normal play mode.

No sound, seemingly preamp?

Hi there. Scratching, popping etc. is a semiconductor (transistor or IC) junction going bad. Must be replaced. With the amp on, try tapping all around the board/s with a plastic screwdriver handle to see if it is a mechanical problem instead.

Alot of the effect on the kaoss pad do not work. but for example effects 90-99 work just fine?

The kaos pad is a mainly input based machine ... You sure you got sound going in?

Yamaha Keyboard Microphone Not Working

Hi Simon. Has the cable to your Mike been trapped under the stand, trodden on etc. Could be a faulty plug or even Mike/switch. Did the Mike ever crackle under use?

Have you another Mike and lead to try?

Sorry for the obvious questions but I have seen this happen before and it was a faulty lead...
