My lights are flickering

KEY THINGS TO CHECK IF YOUR LIGHT FIXTURES ARE FLASHING OR FLICKERING

Check DMX Addresses

If your fixtures are flickering and flashing similar to the example video, then the #1 reason for this is incorrect DMX addressing.

- Check that all fixtures are addressed correctly and match your patch settings in your controller.

Check DMX Modes

The second most common reason for flashing or flickering lights is incorrect DMX modes set.

- Check that all fixtures are set to the correct mode or personality and match your patch settings in your controller.

Bad Cable

A bad cable can result in random flash or flicker. If your lights work "most" of the time, but have unpredictable and random flashing at moments, it's most likely due to a bad cable.

- Try to isolate the cable by unplugging sections of your lighting system starting at the DMX distributor.

Termination

Another area to check is the last fixture in your lines. If your lights work "most" of the time, but have unpredictable and random flashing at moments, it could be due to the terminator OR lack of terminator.

- Try installing a terminator if none exists.
- Try removing a terminator if one does exist.
