    Hi every one,
    I would like you to help me regarding some spot lights. there are 2 spot lights in the bedroom that are not responding quickly when you turn it on and there are two(out of three) more in the bath room that don't turn on. I change the bulbs on two in the bathroom but no luck.
    any idea please reply.

    Could be a whole range of issues ..... where to start ......

    240v lamps or 12v

    What test equipment do you have

    sounds like loose connections from the previous light check each terminal at each light for loose cores.

    I’m thinking ‘if’ 12v spots, blown transformer/s

    But of course, could be several things at this stage

    "not responding quickly" sounds like a switch mode power supply shutting down on over or under load.

    So have you fitted correct size of bulb, if a power supply (electronic transformer) is rated for example 35 - 105 VA and you have 3 x 50W or 3 x 10W it will shut down on over load or under load. I would guess you have fitted 50W instead of 35W lamps?

    It is a guess, so out of interest please say if my guess is correct.
