Installation
Installing the Lamp
The Showtec RGB Theatre Spot uses 3x A1/244 500W Lamps (ordercode 80701P / 80701G), as
manufactured by all popular manufacturers. Use only the appropriate lamp for your unit.
Note that, product versions that use other lamps, may be offered in the future. Check your product
specification label for information.
Always disconnect from electric mains power supply before changing lamps.
The lamp has to be replaced when it is damaged or deformed due to the heat.
Do not install lamps with a higher wattage! Lamps with a higher wattage generate temperatures the
device was not designed for.
Damages caused by non-observance are not subject to warranty.
Procedure :
1. Loosen the 3 screws (A) on the housing.
2. Gently remove the lamp cover (B). Do not touch the lamp bulb glass. Oil on hands shortens the lamp
life. (If you touch the bulb glass, wipe off the glass with a clean, lint-free towel and rubbing alcohol.)
3. Insert the lamp pins into the small holes in the lamp socket. (C). You have to install 3 Lamps.
4. Put the lamp cover back and fasten the screws snugly.

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.
DMX work mode
1. Plug the powercable into the wall.
2. Connect a DMX controller to the Theatre Spot, using a 3-pin XLR cable. When the system checks the
DMX signal, the LED flashes and the DISPLAY shows the DMX address – otherwise the display stays
blank. RGB-mode: RGB referral point light. There are 3 channels: 1st channel RED, 2nd channel Green,
3rd channel Blue.
3. Online test: Connect every unit with a 3-pin XLR cable. Every unit is set to the same DMX work mode and
the received DMX addresses are the same (001-512). When a DMX signal is received, the devices
function synchronously.

Maintenance
The operator has to make sure that safety-relating and machine-technical installations are to be inspected
by an expert after every four years 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:
1. All screws used for installing the device or parts of the device have to be tightly connected and must
not be corroded.
2. There may not be any deformations on housings, fixations and installation spots.
3. Mechanically moving parts like axles, eyes and others may not show any traces of wearing.
4. The electric power supply cables must not show any damages or material fatigue.
The Showtec RGB Theatre Spot requires almost no maintenance. However, you should keep the unit clean.
Otherwise, the light-output will be significantly reduced. Disconnect the mains power supply, and then wipe
the cover with a damp cloth. Do not immerse in liquid. Wipe lens clean with glass cleaner and a soft cloth.
Do not use alcohol or solvents.
The front glass will require weekly cleaning, as smoke-fluid tends to build up residues, reducing the lightoutput very quickly.
Please clean internal components once a year with a light brush and vacuum cleaner.
Keep connections clean. Disconnect electric power, and then wipe the DMX and audio connections with a
damp cloth. Make sure connections are thoroughly dry before linking equipment or supplying electric power.
Changing the Lamp
1. Disconnect mains power supply, and allow 15 minutes to cool down. Loosen the 3 screws on the housing.
Gently remove the lamp cover.
2. Follow directions for installing a new lamp, page 6.
9
Replacing a 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 to do so.
1. Unplug the unit from electric power source.
2. Insert a flat-head screwdriver into a slot in the fuse cover. Gently pry up the fuse cover. The fuse will
come out.
3. Remove the used fuse. If brown or unclear, it is burned out.
4. 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.
1. If the device does not operate properly, unplug the device.
2. Check the fuse, power from the wall, all cables etc.
3. If all of the above appears to be O.K., plug the unit in again.
4. If you are unable to determine the cause of the problem, do not open the device, as this may damage the
unit and the warranty will become void.
5. Return the device to your Showtec dealer.
No Light
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.
If the light effect does not operate properly, refer servicing to a technician.
Response: Suspect three potential problem areas: the power supply, the lamp, the fuse.
1. Power supply. Check that the unit is plugged into an appropriate power supply.
2. The lamp. Replace the old lamp with a new one with the same specifications. See page 10 for replacing
the lamp.
3. The fuse. Replace the fuse. See page 10 for replacing the fuse.
No Response to DMX
Response: Suspect the DMX cable or connectors, a controller malfunction.
1. Check the DMX setting. Make sure that DMX addresses are correct.
2. Check the DMX cable: Unplug the unit; change the DMX cable; then reconnect to electrical power. Try
your DMX control again.
3. Determine whether the controller or light effect is at fault. Does the controller operate properly with other
DMX products ? If not, take the controller in for repair. If so, take the DMX cable and the light effect to a
qualified technician.
