I had a single drop of water which came through one of the switches on my FIX LED48DX now problems with circuit board with light not turning off and not all the LEDs lighting uniformly. Can't find out to dismantle it, i.e. get the circuit board out, switches off. Or is their anyone in the UK who repairs these lights?

If I can get it repaired any way to routinely re-greese the switch O rings?

Your lights are shortcircuited so need to change them now

Hi Chas

I had a similar issue with my Fix500LED earlier in the year. I contacted FIX in Japan, and my light was fixed without any issues
The service was great.
Might be worth contacting them.

I've figured out how to get the rotary switch apart on mine, but it is not easy to figure out how to do it. Once you know, it's easy, but you could easily damage it trying to figure it out. You basically have to make a thin 90 degree tool that you can slide under the edge of the rotary switch in order to push the face off. Once you do this, you can start to unscrew and dismantle the switch.

Have fun!

Thanks for responding, sorry have been busy for a few weeks. Do you have any contact details for FIX in Japan. Sounds like this might be the way to go.

I'll have a go at making a tool to pop off the cover cap on the switches to see if I can expose the screws to undo them. Not sure about removing the circuit board to check that.
