Can you repair them? Its a 50W light, its worked fine up until two nights ago when is stopped, at four months old, I brought it into the house and checked it over, after plugging it in, it flashed a couple of times and went out, well almost, a few of the LEDs were still glowing for a few seconds then they went out. I got it from Amazon so they have re-funded the cost, I have ordered a different make, as I live in France they told me not to return the old one. Being a Yorkshireman I can't throw it away, is there anything I can do ? Thanks :wink: Nos

Think of time and parts cost probably not worth it given how prices are coming down unless you are especially handy

Unlikely. The problem with high power LED lights is that they are still fairly early in their life cycle, they generate a lot of heat and heat sinking is usually not efficient enough.
Where possible, try and use 2 lower wattage lights rather than 1 high power, I think you will it lasts a lot longer.

Thanks I think I will have to bin it, or use it for something else, I can get a new driver for it but I could buy two new lights for the same price :cb Nos
