I have run new cables, segregated the SDI cable running back, so the LED will switch independently and have also installed a capacitor, since I was informed that would be a fix but it bursts light. The picture shows bottom mech with the switch on and bottom mech with the switch off. Thanks so much in advance.

Ah. Ok. You may be better asking on an Oz forum then.
We’re an international forum. Didn’t you get the memo? ?

I’m sure we have other members from down under… just wait and see.


A two way circuit is a two way circuit wherever you are in the world, (except US, where it’s a 3-way) so it might be the old induced voltage with cables running together.

I would have to look up specs of the fitting, as I don’t know what the SDI cable does.

The SDI is just so when you turn the light on the LED around the mech is on.
