Hey guys,

I just bought a whole light and sound kit. On the wand bar graph the bottom 3-4 leds dont light up but will light up in test mode. I have tried the the dip swiths and the the configuration wheel and nothing seems ot get them to work. Any body have ideas or could it be just a bad bar graph?

Thanks

The first thought that occurs to me is the bargraph might be larger than those used on the original props, and the 3-4 LEDs that aren't lighting are intended to be hidden from sight.

However, I'll send this link to the forum Admin to see if this is the case.

It's weird that it would work in test mode and then not in the normal operation.

What I can tell you is to re-check the instructions regarding the direction of the ribbon cable that connects the bargraph. It can only work in one direction. When installed backwards, some LEDs (typically 3-4 at one end) do not light up. It is strange that they do work in test mode though.
