Hey guys,

The bottom section of my T2 translite GI started flickering then all of a sudden seems to have died, top half of the translite lighting is fine along with everything else.

Checked fuses etc all seems okay, any ideas guys?

Thanks,
Scott

Lower left corner area of the driver board. Did we pull the GI fuses and check with a meter ?

Is the connector on the lower left side of the driver board burned ?

Is J120 or J121 along the bottom edge of the driver board burned ?

Do you have AC power going to the lower left side of the driver board ? AC power leaving J120 or J121 to the lights that are out ?

LTG : )

Hey LTG,

Interestingly enough the lights seemed to come back on by themselves, shortly after posting this, I'll keep an eye on it and if they play up again I'll check your recommendations, many thanks for taking the time to reply dude.

Thanks,
Scott

T2 is known for burned GI connectors as LTG mentioned. The problem will resurface. Better get familiar with crimping pins.

Hook I picked up yesterday; new GI connectors, heavy duty pins and LED install is a way of life for Data East owners.
