I am having trouble replacing a light in my bedroom which i thought would be simple,but its driving me mad,cos it just won't work and i don't know why.
I've wired other lights in but i just don't understand this one.
The ceiling has 2 grey cable coming out of it which contain 2 red wires,2 blacks and the earth.When i took the prev light out it looked simple until i looked at my new light fitting and it just has a connector for 1 live and 1 neutral and i have no idea where the rest of them need to go.
Any suggestions.Be kind if i'm being a bit thick here!
Your lucky must be end of line. Both reds go together use a chock block or something. One black to live (Line) of lamp the other black to neutral of lamp. Earths will also need chock block to connect together. Although there is a right and wrong way for two black in theory in practice it will work either way around.
