I have two cyberlight fixtures, which refuse to dim fully. they remain open even though the fader is fully closed, I have tried different boards, different power, and different cabling but they still refuse to close.

Any suggestions?
thanks
Weston.

    Is it a mechanical issue? Like the flags got bumped out of position and need to be loosened and reset on their position shaft.

    Are they interfering with each other?
    Or are they just not homing correctly?
    Do they move easily by hand when there is no power?
    I would do a hub setup for starters, and if that doesn't solve it,
    I would replace the offending motor.

    If you do end up replacing the motor, you still will need to do a hup setup after it is replaced. otherwise you may still have dimming problems.
    Good Luck!

    Ok what exactly is a hub setup and how is it done?

    My apologies, I was out of town.

    Ok, it has been a while for cyberlights.
    but as I remember,
    with power ON, (BE Careful!)

    Set the dipswitch labeled SET UP, to the on position.

    All the motors should lock in a "full step" postion.

    loosen the offending shutter blade, and manually move it to the closed position, so it is just touching the closed stop, and then tighten the shutter blade back down on the motor shaft.

    You goal is to make the shutter be at a full step when it is homing.
    this will make sure your shutter is consistent from unit to unit.

    this should be done on any high end light every time a motor is changed that doesn't home to a sensor..

    Please let me know if you have any questions.
    Good Luck!

    It doesn’t appear to be a mechanical problem since both (at times) will almost fully shutter if I take the dimmer up to 100% and then down. When I am able to get them to respond with this I am left with a bout a 5-10% light spill left. I can work with that, but I can’t get the two cybers to do that all the time.

    I haven’t heard of the hub setup before. Where can I get these procedures? I need to swap out the colors on my wheel and can do that in the same pass.
