Some of the malibu light bulbs on the cable have burnt out (and some
are working just fine). I tried replacing the bulbs but they still
don't come on. So I thought I would just get new lights (fixtures) and
plug them on to the cable. Guess what--- these lights don't turn on
either. Anybody have any ideas? Why would some work and others not?
Is it just the lights at the end of the run that are not working? Post a
little more info.
Your power supply can only handle so many watts. Could you have used (or
bought) the wrong size replacement?
The cable can't be burn't out because some lights work and some don't.
It is the lights in the middle that don't turn on, not the end ones. I
don't think it is a power supply problem because I have several lights
out, therefore alot of the previous power is not being used.
I recall instructions in a Malibu product about replacing bulbs as soon
as they burn out - remaining bulbs get too much watts? I only helped a
friend with a couple of lights - hers had badly rusted connections in
the fixtures. The little connector that punches into the cable could be
rusted, as well. We live on salt water, so the rust problem here might
be more frequent than elsewhere.
