    Default Equinox Star Cloth Broke

    Hello,

    The other day at a gig my LED star cloth (EQLED12B) didn't switch on, I moved the controller box and the lights flickered, so I figured it was a loose wire. I tried to see if there was anything obvious and then this came loose:

    So, what I want to know is, how do I put these back in?

    I've tried to find a diagram to see which wire goes where in the connector without any luck, any help would be gratefully received!

    Thanks

    Voila!

    I hope you're good at soldering!

    I may have repaired one or two of these awful things one or two times Not my own I might add - I blimmin hate the things.

    FYI don't hurry this job. Get some 3mm diameter heatshrink (preferably with a 2:1 shrink ratio) tubing & before you solder the wires onto the connector, slide the heatshink onto the wire. Once the wire is soldered to the connector, slide the heatshrink tubing along & apply heat to shrink it. This will afford the connections a little more strain relief.

    Or you could, as I was often temped to do - just ditch the crap cheap multiway connector & replace it with a 5 pin Neutrik XLR plug & socket combo.

    Thank you ever so much for that! My dad is taking on the role of chief fixer as I'm useless with this kind of thing.
