Friend of mine has phoned. He needs my help because his lights in the hallway keep flashing dimly whilst in the off position.

He has measured nominal voltage when the lights are turned on and 50v when the lights are turned off.

I dont have much information to work with yet but thought I would ask for a heads up on how to approach this. Iv not had a fault like this before.

The offending lights are via a 3 gang 2 way switch. Could this be induced voltage? If so, how would I confirm this and how can I remedy it?

He has said he changed the lamps for LED and they flash even more obvious now.

I will obviously check connections and test Zs, probably I/R switch live to neutral/earth etc...

I thought I'd just ask for a heads up on how to approach it.

My friend is an electronics wiz so he has some knowledge on the basics. I would imagine he bas tried the obvious
