Having an issue with a Kessil H 380 light. When it turns on it flashes. If you unplug it and plug back in , it seems to work ok. It’s on a reverse daylight schedule, so I’m not awake to see if it does it through out the cycle. I did clean fan and heat ink, housing etc and didn’t seem to change anything.
Any suggestions?
The light is about 3 years old. I can’t find the original receipt, but fan is stamped , June 2016 .

Are you controlling it via the 0-10v? When i first hooked up my a360s to the 0-10 port they flashed until i set the variable speeds on apex.

Is this light hooked up to a timer or a controller? Have you tried using another power supply?

Hooked up to controller, no on power supply. Once the controller turns it on, if I unplugged from power supply, and plug in again usually it works again.

Have you tried taking it off the controller and seeing if the problem still occurs when the controller is not connected? Sometimes its associated cables, power sources, or controllers causing the issue.

I tried it without the controller, same issue. Switched out the power supply from my tuna blue we, seems to have fixed it. Can the power supplies be purchased separately?
