Evening. I've spent some time attempting to install a new light fitting with very little success. Having taken the old fitting off I found two seperate cables with various wires taped together. The neutrals from each cable were attched to the old fitting, one with a red sleeve over the black cable. I tried using these on the new fitting but unfortuntely did not see the light. I then attempted a little ill informed investigation and removed the electrical tape from the lives and earths. Both lives had brass connectors on the ends which I removed so I now have two unattached cables and no idea what I need to do to get my light working. If anyone can either tell me where I need to go from here or point me toward a useful website I'd be hugely grateful. The light switch is a dimmer if that has any bearing.
