Hi glad you started a new thread,
Ok numbers don't add up!
4 red = 4 blk ! you appear to be missing a blk.
this may be the neutral on to the other lights which should be in with the other blks, did it get pushed up in ceiling or worse blown out by fault?
suggest undoing rose fixing screws and lowering to see above it for 'spare ' blk. regards SPARX
