Firstly I'd better point out I'm a novice with electrics. My skills stop at swapping plug sockets and in the past light fittings.
Yesterday I decided to replace 2 lights with new ceiling roses. They are in the lounge and there are 2 switches which turn both lights on and off together. However, I foolishly :oops: didn't take note of what cables went where as I thought I had it memorised and now both lights are on perminantly and the switches do nothing.
I had my farther in law out as he is pretty good with electrics and after a few hours he couldn't figure it out either. Both ceiling roses have 2 grey 3 wired cables (E/N/L). Ceiling rose A has a further 2 grey cable casings, which just have a red cable in the casing. Ceiling rose B has just one extra cable with just one cable in the grey casing. We have also checked the two light swtiches. The switch near ceiling rose A has a red live, black neutral and a single common cable. The switch by ceiling rose B has red/live, black/neutral and a red/black in the common.
I'm trying to locate a sparky to come and have a look but wondered if there is something I can try in the meantime that is safe and won't blow the fuse box. I do not have an amp reader either, just a screwdriver with the light in for live wires.
The fuse box is a trip switch box if that helps.
Cheers for any assistance.
