Hi,
I am currently touring a small DL3 package.
3 x DL3
1 x d-tec mix pro

I have an issue with a constant vertical thin blue line perhaps one or two pixels wide appearing on the left hand side of every fixture when i use either the internal camera or if i run an other sources into the d-tec and route it back to the projector.
If i run the fixtures in collage the blue line moves to the left hand side also.
I am not getting this line with any of my custom content or stock content so it is limited to the cameras and external source which is an apple mac.

Could this be a d-tec issue or a fixture issue....we have changed mains supply and swapped all fixtures to the same supply but still getting the line.We are running from venue supplies so no generators involved.

thanks Cormac

    A few quick things to check:

    1- if you are using Cat5 baluns....make sure that they are all the same brand.

    2 - Try looping the all the fixture's internal camera to themselves......if the blue line goes away then they are looping internally, then your issue is either in your D-Tek system somewhere or in your cables.

    3 - Make sure your S-video input is set to NTSC or PAL appropriately.

    Hope this helps. :)

    Hi Marty,
    Ok so we got another d-tec unit and we are still getting the blue line.
    We changed s-video camera to both NTSC and PAL and the problem is on both settings.
    We know that it is only on the input side of the d-tec unit and only on the DL3 fixtures and only on the cameras of the fixtures?
    It's the same line on every fixture in the same place.....suggestions or workarounds appreciated.

    thanks C

    Very odd indeed.

    What do you see when you loop the DL.3 camera internally to itself?

    What do you see when you link two fixtures directly with cables (Camera OUT of unit #1 to S-Video IN of unit #2 for example)?

    What type of cables are you using?
    Are there any other devices in the system (VDAs etc....)?
