I have 4 trackspots with ver 4.0 eproms and 2 with ver2.1.
Does anyone know if I can upgrade the ver 2.1 with ver 4.0 eprom chips?

    Yes you can but you would have to remove the eprom and reflash it to version 4.0. You can usually find an electronic shop around that will copy a chip for you for around 10 bucks, so you would have to bring a 4.0v chip with you, or you can do what i did and just buy an eprom burner. Also you would have to buy a UV eraser if you buy an eprom burner.

    really? And I though I had to "fine tune" the shutter. Anything else that would be impacted? Because i'm having som interesting issues with a couple of units' mirrors getting misaligned or hitting the side of the unit and resetting.

    Mirror getting off it a completely different thing. Try this:

    Watch the mirror home & note which direction it moves & knocks against the standoff. Put all the address & personality switches on. This puts the fixture into set up mode. Move the mirror by hand and you will feel the motor steps. Then move it to hit the standoff as if it were homing. When it hits the standoff the mirror should rest on the standoff on a complete motor step. If it is between motor steps you need to back the mirror off of the stand off, loosen the set screw that hold the mirror onto the motor, move the mirror to the stand off (you should not feel the motor steps), tighten the set screw & check to see if the mirror lands on the standoff on a complete motor step. If not try it again. It may take a few times to get right. Once you get set test the fixture.


    no sh*t, really? Looks like I'll spend some of this week pulling trackspots down from the truss. Thanks!
