e14 light Bulb Flickering With driver LD 600s

Postby blmskaarjice » Fri Feb 28, 2020 6:00 pm


I'm trying to study to understand the source of my problem but I cannot find the reason behind it.
I have two bedside lights with the same problem:
both of them are E14 with 5.5W both of them are flickering then I was thinking maybe is some wire that is not well connected (they are cheap).

After taking them apart I could find nothing wrong. I check the driver, is an LD 600s a 3 Way Finger Touch Dimmer ON/OFF Switch. 3-20W for led or 10-60W for filament.
I tested an 8W non-dimmable bulb and is working good.
I try with a 42w dimmable halogen and is working good.

What is wrong? I should change the driver or E14 bulb?

Thank you,

It will be the dimmer not matching the bulb, does not even need to be a dimmer my wifi light switch does the same.

You have answered your own question, it is the lamp, it is too low in wattage for the dimming electronics to work properly.
