DL2 not putting graphics out

Hi all

In production rehersals which i have 4 DL2's on. All 4 have been running great until 1 decided to only output a white 4:3 image. That one unit outputs the white 4:3 image as soon as the motion layer is at full. Global and graphics layers have no intensity control at all. I can see the unit though CMA and i can see all my content as well as the stock content.

Can anyone help?

    Hi Micah,

    The first thing to check would be whether it's an issue with the DL.2 itself, or if it is somehow being caused by the controller. Which control console are you using? Also, what version of software are your DL.2 fixtures running?

    To check this, use either the "TEST" tab in the menu of the fixture or the "Test/Reset" tab of the CMA configuration view to turn on the "Self Test Video Pattern 1". When this is on, you should see a color-changing background with all of the layers displaying an object/media file.

    The Self Test Video Pattern overrides any DMX input on the fixture, so if your output goes from white to the video test pattern, that means the problem is somehow being caused by your control console.

    If this doesn't help, please let us know along with what version of software the fixtures are running. The version of software will determine what other tools are available for troubleshooting.

    Hi Matt, Thanks for the reply

    I am using a Roadhog 4 running software 1.1.3 (352) and the DL2 have software

    I tried bringing up the test pattern and all it brings up is the white 4:3 image, not the usual test pattern

    Found the problem. Turns out the projector is the issue. DL2 is fine.
