i thought i would be really clever and replace the light in the hall way, it was a really ugly bowl type thing which looked like it belonged in a bathroom.
i took it off without looking at which wires connect to which, i am now trying to fit up a set of halogen spotlights which are mounted on a plate, thought it would be straight forward live= red. black=neutral but there are 3 red wires coming down and 3 black and also the earth wire.
i did connect it up it worked for about 10 seconds with only one bulb working instead of all 3, and then it fused when i switched it off and then back on again, so i disconnected it. although now none of the lights in the house are working has the fuse blown completely or do i need something attatched to those wires for all the others to work? and how am i suppose to connect my light up also!? in darkness, with night time drawing in! :(
