Simply Build It

What cables do you have coming from the ceiling void?
Did the light work before you fitted this, or are you replacing because it stopped working?
Other things to check
Switch is connected correctly with no loose terminals.
The feed may well come from another light fitting in a room nearby, so check there are no loose terminals in the ceiling rose of that light.
