Mega Tree Running ‘In Part’ Due To Electrical Issues

Firstly, Merry Christmas Everybody!

As stated in my previous entry, the mega tree is standing again thanks to Ed of RegencyChristmas who is also a Christmas lights fanatic.

Unfortunately due to the differences in how the replacement LED strings are wired to my existing ones I cannot get the white and blue colours to light without running risk of burning out the red colours. The green colours light at a lower brightness, whilst the red colours light at full intensity.

There is just not enough time left in the season to try and resolve the problem now – but next year it should definitely be fixed.

I’d also like to thank Grant of Highbury who was willing to help. It is great that the Christmas Lights community is able to work together.
