Fitted new light fitting, other lights now not working!

Postby CMR » Tue Nov 11, 2008 7:23 pm

Hi all,

I have fitted a new light fitting to replace my old style unit.

I isolated the three central red wires putting these in a block.

I have then put the two black wires to netural and the other black wire (which i asume to be switched live) to the live in the new unit.

The light works fine, however all the other lights upstairs are now not working.
