I am trying to fit a new light fitting. The connections on this fitting equates to a 4 pin plastic junction box with live, earth, and neutral in that order with the 4th blank.
I removed the old ceiling rose but forgot to take a picture. Nightmare. I am left with 3 red wires, 2 black wires, and 3 earth wires. I cannot tell which cable is the switcher cable because none of the wires have insulation tape on them.
So far I have not wired directly into the junction box.
I have used the old ceiling rose and wired a neutral cable from the fitting directly into the left hand pin on the neutral. I picked one of the 2 black wires and wired that next to the fittings neutral.
I then wired the 3 reds into the 3 centre connections. Finally I wired the 2nd back into the left hand side of the 2 hole junction and finally the live cable from the plastic junction box of the fitting into the right hand side of the 2 hole junction.
All 3 earths then wired into earth terminal.
Power back on and nothing.
I swapped around the 2 black wires and power back on.
Light fitting bulbs on but very dim and no control with the switches. This is as far as I have got because I really don't want to be guessing and I really thought one of the black wire would be the switcher.
