Unpacking Instructions
Immediately upon receiving a fixture, carefully unpack the carton, check the contents to ensure that
all parts are present, and have been received in good condition. Notify the shipper immediately and
retain packing material for inspection if any parts appear damaged from shipping or the carton itself
shows signs of mishandling. Save the carton and all packing materials. In the event that a fixture
must be returned to the factory, it is important that the fixture be returned in the original factory box
and packing.
AC Power
To determine the power requirements for a particular fixture, see the label affixed to the back plate of
the fixture or refer to the fixture’s specifications chart. A fixture’s listed current rating is its average
current draw under normal conditions. All fixtures must be powered directly off a switched circuit and
cannot be run off a rheostat (variable resistor) or dimmer circuit, even if the rheostat or dimmer
channel is used solely for a 0% to 100% switch. Before applying power to a
Figure 1 - AC Voltage Switch
fixture, check that the source voltage matches the fixture’s requirement.
Check the fixture or device carefully to make sure that if a voltage selection
switch exists that it is set to the correct line voltage you will use.
Warning!
Verify that the voltage select switch on your unit matches the
line voltage applied. Damage to your fixture may result if the
line voltage applied does not match the voltage indicated on
the voltage selector switch. All fixtures must be connected to
circuits with a suitable Earth Ground.
Not all fixtures have a voltage
select switch. Please be sure to
connect to the proper voltage.

4. OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
The LX5 can operate in Sound-Active or Auto mode, which is determined by the position of the switch
located on the rear of the unit. The mode of the unit refers to the reaction of the LEDs only as there
are no moving parts in the unit. To switch between the two modes, place the switch in either the “I” or
“O” position.
In the “I” position, the fixture operates in Sound-Active mode, the sensitivity of which can be adjusted
by the knob also located on the rear of the unit. To increase the sensitivity of the unit rotate the knob
clockwise.
In Auto Mode, the light will progress through a pre-programmed routine, whether sound is present or
not.

Troubleshooting
1)
Verify that the unit is plugged into both the wall and the unit, and verify that the fuse is in
good working order.
2)
If the unit fails to respond, place the unit in auto mode, listening for movement of the
motor inside the case. If no sound is heard from inside the case, replace fuse and retry.
3)
If the unit is still not working, verify the integrity of the outlet with another fixture.
If you still have a problem after trying the above solutions, please contact CHAUVET Technical
Support at the location on the next page.

General Maintenance
To maintain optimum performance and minimize wear fixtures should be cleaned frequently. Usage
and environment are contributing factors in determining frequency. As a general rule, fixtures should
be cleaned at least twice a month. Dust build up reduces light output performance and can cause
overheating. This can lead to reduced lamp life and increased mechanical wear. Be sure to power off
fixture before conducting maintenance.
Unplug fixture from power. Use a vacuum or air compressor and a soft brush to remove dust
collected on external vents and internal components. Clean all glass when the fixture is cold with a
mild solution of glass cleaner or Isopropyl Alcohol and a soft lint free cotton cloth or lens tissue. Apply
solution to the cloth or tissue and drag dirt and grime to the outside of the lens. Gently polish optical
surfaces until they are free of haze and lint.
The cleaning of internal and external optical lenses and/or mirrors must be carried out periodically to
optimize light output. Cleaning frequency depends on the environment in which the fixture operates:
damp, smoky or particularly dirty surrounding can cause greater accumulation of dirt on the unit’s
optics. Clean with soft cloth using normal glass cleaning fluid. - Always dry the parts carefully. - Clean
the external optics at least every 20 days. Clean the internal optics at least every 30/60 days.
Returns Procedure
Returned merchandise must be sent prepaid and in the original packing, call tags will not be issued.
Package must be clearly labeled with a Return Merchandise Authorization Number (RA #). Products
returned without an RA # will be refused. Call CHAUVET and request RA # prior to shipping the
fixture. Be prepared to provide the model number, serial number and a brief description of the cause
for the return. Be sure to properly pack fixture, any shipping damage resulting from inadequate
packaging is the customer’s responsibility. CHAUVET reserves the right to use its own discretion to
repair or replace product(s). As a suggestion, proper UPS packing or double-boxing is always a safe
method to use.
Note:
If you are given an RA #, please include the following information on a piece of paper
inside the box:
1)
Your name
2)
Your address
3)
Your phone number
4)
The RA #

A brief description of the symptoms
Claims
Damage incurred in shipping is the responsibility of the shipper; therefore the damage must be
reported to the carrier upon receipt of merchandise. It is the customer's responsibility to notify and
submit claims with the shipper in the event that a fixture is damaged due to shipping. Any other claim
for items such as missing component/part, damage not related to shipping, and concealed damage,
must be made within seven (7) days of receiving merchandise.
