Accu Spot 250 Hybrid Handling Precautions
Caution! There are no user serviceable parts inside this unit. Do not
attempt any repairs yourself, doing so will void your manufactures
warranty. In the unlikely event your unit may require service please
contact American DJ®.
During operation the housing may become extremely hot. Avoid
touching the unit with bare hands while in use.
American DJ® will not accept any liability for any resulting damages
caused by the non-observance of this manual or any unauthorized
modification to this unit.
Accu Spot 250 Hybrid Discharge Lamp Warning
This fixture is fitted with a discharge lamp which
is highly susceptible to damage if improperly
handled. Never touch the lamp with your bare fingers as the oil from your hands will shorten lamp
life. Also, never move the fixture until the lamps
have had ample time to cool. Remember, lamps
are not covered under warranty conditions.
This unit emits intense UV radiation which is harmful to the eyes and
skin. The intense luminance of the lamp can cause severe damage
to the retina. Never operate this unit without it’s covers, these covers
have been specially designed to shield against UV radiation.
Epileptic Warning: Those suffering from epilepsy should avoid looking
directly into the lamp at all times.
Avoid switching the fixture on and off repeatedly in short intervals as
this will reduce lamp life and intensity.
To achieve the intensity associated with discharge lamps, these lamps
use gas sealed in a high pressure environment to emit a brilliant output.
Due to the high pressure involved with the construction of the lamp,
the lamp may explode during prolonged extensive use. This risk is
increased with age, added care is encouraged when dealing with older
lamps. Extreme caution should be used when operating this or any
fixture fitted with a gas discharge lamp. Never open this unit while in
use.

Special Note: Line Termination. When longer runs of cable are
used, you may need to use a terminator on the last unit to avoid erratic
behavior. A terminator is a 110-120 ohm 1/4 watt resistor which is connected between pins 2 and 3 of a male XLR connector (DATA + and
DATA -). This unit is inserted in the female XLR connector of the last
unit in your daisy chain to terminate the line. Using a cable terminator
(ADJ part number Z-DMX/T) will decrease the possibilities of erratic
behavior.

age in your area matches the required voltage for your American DJ®
Accu Spot 250 Hybrid. The American DJ® Accu Spot 250 Hybrid is
available in a 120v and 220v version. Because line voltage may vary
from venue to venue, you should be sure your unit voltage matches the
wall outlet voltage before attempting to operate you fixture. Also be
sure to only use the included I.E.C. power cable supplied with the unit,
this cable matches the voltage and current requirements of the unit.
DMX Linking: DMX is a language allowing all makes and models
of different manufactures to be linked together and operate from a
single controller, as long as all fixtures and the controller are DMX
compliant. To ensure proper DMX data transmission, when using
several DMX fixtures try to use the shortest cable path possible. The
order in which fixtures are connected in a DMX line does not influence
the DMX addressing. For example; a fixture assigned a DMX address
of 1 may be placed anywhere in a DMX line, at the beginning, at the
end, or anywhere in the middle. Therefore, the first fixture controlled
by the controller could be the last fixture in the chain. When a fixture
is assigned a DMX address of 1, the DMX controller knows to send

Accu Spot 250 Hybrid
System Menu
To adjust the address of your unit you must first go to the
address that it is currently set to. From there you can adjust the
address. First make sure all channels are set to the value of “0”.
1. On your DMX controller set the DMX value of Channel 1 to
the value “7”.
2. Now set the DMX value of Channel 2 to the value “7” to
adjust the starting address between 1 and 255. To adjust the
address between 256 and 511 set Channel 2 to the value “8” .
3. Set the DMX value of Channel 3 to your desired starting address. This will take about 20 seconds before the unit
accepts the new DMX address.
EXAMPLE: So, if you want the address to be 57, you must first
set the address that is currently assingned to the unit. The proceed to set Channel 1s’ value to “7”, Channel 2s’ value to “7”,
and Channel 3s’ value to “57”.
2nd Example: Again, if you want the address to be 420, you
must first set the address that is currently assingned to the unit.
If you want the set the address to 420, set Channel 1s’ value to
“7”, Channel 2s’ value to “8”, and Channel 3s to “164”. (256 +

Error Codes
When power is applied, the unit will automatically enter a
“reset/test” mode. This mode brings all the internal motors to a
home position. If there is an internal problem with one or more
of the motors an error code will flash in the display in the form
of “XXer”, “XX” will represent a function number. For example,
when the display shows “02Er,” it means there is some type
of error with the channel 2 motor. If there are multiple errors
during the start-up process they will all flash in the display. For
example: if the fixtures has errors on channel 1, channel 2, and
channel 3 all at the same time, you will see the error message
flash “01Er”, “02Er,” and ”03Er” repeated 5 times.
If an error does occur during the initial start-up procedure the
fixture will self-generate a second reset signal and try to realign
all the motors and correct the errors, if the errors persist after a
second attempt a third attempt will be made.
If after a third attempt all the errors have not been corrected the
fixture will make the following determinations:
1) 3 or more errors - The fixture cannot function properly with
three or more errors therefore the fixture will place itself in a
stand-by mode until subsequent repairs can be made.
2) Less than 3 errors - If the fixture has less than 3 errors, therefore most other functions will work properly. The fixture will
attempt to operate normally until the errors can be corrected by
a technician. The errors in question will remain flashing in the
display as a reminder of internal errors.

light show without the need of an external controller. The units will
react to sound or chase through the built-in programs.
• DMX control mode This function will allow you to control each individual fixtures traits
with a standard DMX-512 controller such as the Elation ® Show
Designer.™
Universal DMX Control: This function allows you to use a Elation®
DMX-512 controller to control the various DMX traits. A DMX controller allows you to create unique programs tailored to your individual
needs.
1. The Accu Spot 250 Hybrid uses eleven DMX channels. See pages
42-45 for detailed description of the DMX traits.
2. To control your fixture in DMX mode, follow the set-up procedures
on pages 10-12 as well as the set-up specifications that are
included with your DMX controller.
3. Use the controller’s faders to control the various DMX fixture traits.
4. This will allow you to create your own programs.
5. Follow the instruction on page 16 to set the DMX address.
6. For longer cable runs (more than a 100 feet) use a terminator on the last fixture.

1. Be sure main power is disconnected and allow the unit to cool. If the you have just installed a new unit you can obviously skip this
step.
2. Make a preliminary adjustment: Turn the three lamp adjustment
thumb screws completely in (clockwise). Then back them each out (counter-clockwise) about three complete turns.
3. Turn the unit on and allow it to reset.
4. Using either a DMX controller or the control panel on the unit,
strike the lamp and focus the light on a flat surface.
6. Center the hot-spot (the brightest part of the beam) using the 3
adjustment screws. Turn one screw at a time to drag the hot-spot
diagonally across the projected image. If you cannot detect a hotspot, adjust the lamp until the light is even.
7. To reduce a hot-spot, pull the lamp in by turning all three screws
clockwise 1/4-turn at a time until the light is evenly distributed.
8. If the light is brighter around the edge than it is in the center, or if
light output is low, the lamp is too far back in the reflector. “Push”
the lamp out by turning the screws.
Fuse Replacement: The fuse holder located at the rear of the unit
above the power cord. Disconnect from the main power supply. Insert
a standard flat head screw driver in to the fuse holder housing, located
on the back of the unit. Turn the screwdriver in counter-clockwise
direction to remove the fuse holder. Remove the old fuse and discard
it, replace the fuse with the same type. Insert the fuse back into it’s
housing.

Accu Spot 250 Hybrid Gobo Replacement
This unit comes with interchangable gobos. Changing the
gobos is a easy procedure. Follow the instructions below.
Caution! Never open the unit when in use. Always disconnect
the main power before attempting to change the gobos.
1. To change the gobo, you must remove the top half of the moving head. The top half of the moving head does not have
the lens in front. The lens is on the bottom half of the head.
2. First start by removing the front metal plate by unscrewing the four phillips screws. Now, unscrew the two phillips
screws in the front of the moving head and the two in the back. Remove the top half of the shell.
3. When you remove the shell you will be able to access the gobo wheel. Turn the wheel with your hand until you come across the gobo you would like to change.
4. With your finger push the gobo out towards the front and then slide the gobo up and out of the wheel. When doing this you do not need a lot of pressure.
5. Change the gobo by sliding the new gobo into place and reassemble the shell.
Note: If you want to add your own custom gobo, you will
have to remove the retainer ring that secures the gobo to
the gobo frame. Remove the retainer ring using your finger
nail or flat head screwdriver. Secure your gobo to the gobo
frame using the retainer ring and slide the new gobo into
place in the wheel.
Accu Spot 250 Hybrid Cleaning
Fixture Cleaning: Due to fog residue, smoke, and dust cleaning the
internal and external optical lenses and mirror should be carried out
periodically to optimize light output. Cleaning frequency depends on
the environment in which the fixture operates (I.e. smoke, fog residue,
dust, dew). In heavy club use we recommend cleaning on a monthly
basis. Periodic cleaning will ensure longevity, and crisp output.
1. Use normal glass cleaner and a soft cloth to wipe down the out-
side casing.
2. Use a brush to wipe down the cooling vents and fan grill.
3. Clean the external optics and mirror with glass cleaner and a soft cloth every 20 days.
4. Clean the internal optics with glass cleaner and a soft cloth every 30-60 days.
5. Always be sure to dry all parts completely before plugging the unit back in.
Accu Spot 250 Hybrid Trouble Shooting
Trouble Shooting: Listed below are a few common problems that
you may encounter, with solutions.
No light output from the unit;
1.Be sure you have connected your unit into a standard 120v wall outlet.
2. Be sure the external fuse has not blown. The fuse is located at the rear of the unit.
3. Remove the lamp holder and be sure the lamp is seated in its socket properly. Occasionally lamps become loose during ship-
ping be sure the lamp is push in to its socket all the way.
4.Be sure the fuse holder is completely and properly seated.
Unit does not respond to sound;
1. Low frequencies (bass) should cause the unit to react to sound.
Tapping on the microphone, quiet or high pitched sounds may
not activate the unit.
