Hi everyone,

I've got a problem fitting a ceiling light and the wiring is really confusing me, can anyone help me?

Most lights I've fitted have one or two brown and blue wires coming from the ceiling (along with the earths) and I put both together into the light fitting. This light has four grey cables:

3 have: 1x earth 1x blue 1x brown
1 has: 1x earth 1x grey 1x black

What am I supposed to wire the grey and black to?

I've tried every combination but it doesn't seem to work! With the blue and brown wired in normally the light goes on and stays on when I try to switch it off! Should I wire the random grey cable into it somehow? I'm wiring the four wires into a connection box then having a single wire coming from that to the light as it's easier to work with.

Many thanks,

Heather
