Hello everyone, im having a problem with 1 of our Technospot's, anytime i use the strobe feature the shutter gets stuck and the fixture doesn't respond after that until i do a reset, anybody has any ideas on what the problem could be!

    Could be a fixture issue, or something else in your system.
    More info is required to even begin to try to help you.

    What console are you using?
    What else is in the DMX chain with the fixture?
    Is the DMX line properly terminated?
    How long is the DMX cable run from console to fixture?
    Are you using proper DMX cable?

    Hope this helps. :)

    thanks for the reply Marty Ive had this exact issue with this exact fixture a couple times before. I either use the HES road hog or the Avolites tiger touch, i have the same problem when using both boards, in that particular chain i had 4 technospots, 6 studio commands and 3 elation design spot 575b's, the setup basically consists of console, 100ft of gepco dmx cable or sometimes wireless dmx, swisson opto isolator then fixtures. That particular fixture was #2 in the chain.

    If you have the same problem with the same fixture, but all the others are working OK on the same chain, then it sounds like a fixture specific issue.
    Since these are most likely very new units and still covered by warranty you should probably give HES suppport a call.
