My living room light was not coming everytime I flicked the switch so I assumed this was due to a loose wire in the socket. Therefore, I shut the power down and opened the switch.
As I pulled the cover away all of the wires became detached. There was three red wires and a green and yellow one (earth?). However, there's only two wires required in the socket as it's a one-way switch.
Anyway, I found the correct combination of the wires eventually (4th attempt) and the switch worked fine. However, now the lights in 3 other rooms are not working!
Currently two rooms on one side of the flat - main bedroom and the living room (both one way lights) - and the hall (a two-way) are fine but the others on the opposite side - bedroom two, bathroom and kitchen are no longer working!
What have I done wrong here? I thought that maybe I'd blow the bulbs, but I changed a good one from the living room and put it in the kitchen and it still doesn't work.
