Just changed light switches and need help as several now not working

Postby Liam76 » Sat Apr 02, 2016 8:07 pm

Hi folks.
Newbie here with a bit of a curious one...
We moved into a new house just a few months and the house has had a mix of old and new plugs and light switches. I've been changing them over here and there and today I've changed the light switches in our dining area and in the hall/ up the stairs into the landing.
I swapped everything like for like and the new light switches seem to be working fine however rather curiously now, the lights in the bathroom, kitchen and one of the bedrooms don't work?
Any idea's what's going on?

I would guess a wire out in the ceiling rose.
