User manual
LED Expected Lifespan
LEDs gradually decline in brightness over time. HEAT is the dominant factor that leads to the acceleration
of this decline. Packaged in clusters, LEDs exhibit higher operating temperatures than in ideal or singular
optimum conditions. For this reason, when all color LEDs are used at their fullest intensity, life of the LEDs is
significantly reduced. If improving the lifespan is of higher priority, place care in providing for lower
operational temperatures. This may include climatic-environmental and the reduction of overall
projection intensity.

Set Up and Operation
Follow the directions below, as they pertain to your preferred operation mode.
Before plugging the unit in, always make sure that the power supply matches the product specification
voltage. Do not attempt to operate a 120V specification product on 230V power, or vice versa.
Control mode switch
With the control mode switch you can choose between 3 operation modes.
01) Mode switch position (I): continuous rotation and not controlled by music.
02) Mode switch position (O): LEDs light up but no rotation and not controlled by music.
03) Mode switch position (II): the device is now in music-controlled mode.
If the device is not triggered by music within 25 secs, its LEDs will go out and the motor stops spinning.
04) After choosing the desired mode, plug the end of the electric mains power cord into a proper
electric power supply socket.
05) The device will now be activated in the desired mode.
Maintenance
The operator has to make sure that safety-relating and machine-technical installations are to be
inspected by an expert after every year in the course of an acceptance test.
The operator has to make sure that safety-relating and machine-technical installations are to be
inspected by a skilled person once a year.
The following points have to be considered during the inspection:
01) All screws used for installing the device or parts of the device have to be tightly connected and must
not be corroded.
02) There may not be any deformations on housings, fixations and installation spots.
03) Mechanically moving parts like axles, eyes and others may not show any traces of wearing.
04) The electric power supply cables must not show any damages or material fatigue.
The Showtec Star LED requires almost no maintenance. However, you should keep the unit clean.
Otherwise, the fixture’s light-output will be significantly reduced.
Disconnect the mains power supply and then wipe the cover with a damp cloth. Wipe the front glass
panel clean with glass cleaner and a soft cloth. Do not use alcohol or solvents. The front glass panel will
require weekly cleaning, as smoke-fluid tends to build up residues, reducing the light-output very quickly.
Do not immerse in liquid.
Replacing the Fuse
Power surges, short-circuit or inappropriate electrical power supply may cause a fuse to burn out. If the
fuse burns out, the product will not function whatsoever. If this happens, follow the directions below.
01) Unplug the unit from electric power source.
02) Insert a flat-headed screwdriver into a slot in the fuse cover. Turn the screwdriver to the left, at the
same time gently push a bit (Turn and Push). The fuse will come out.
03) Remove the used fuse. If brown or unclear, it is burned out.
04) Insert the replacement fuse into the holder where the old fuse was. Reinsert the fuse cover. Be sure to
use a fuse of the same type and specification. See the product specification label for details.

Troubleshooting
This troubleshooting guide is meant to help solve simple problems.
If a problem occurs, carry out the steps below in sequence until a solution is found. Once the unit
operates properly, do not carry out following steps.
No Light
If the light effect does not operate properly, refer servicing to a technician.
Suspect three potential problem areas as: the power supply, the LEDs, the fuse.
01) Power supply. Check if the unit is plugged into an appropriate power supply.
02) The LEDs. Return the Star LED to your Showtec dealer.
03) The fuse. Replace the fuse. See page 7 for replacing the fuse.
04) If all of the above appears to be O.K., plug the unit in again.
05) If you are unable to determine the cause of the problem, do not open the Star LED, as this may
damage the unit and the warranty will become void.
06) Return the device to your Showtec dealer.
