Same as it is now. (Assuming that the 2nd picture is the light you just took down)

:dunno:

Sorry Burself, not enough information. the pics don't tell the whole story.

First, are both these lights on the same switch ?

If so can we have pics of the wiring at the non-working light ?

3 wires blue - yellow|green - brown

and another one need finishing but the wiring is different here
instead 1 brown I got 2 browns connected toghether#

when I disassembled old one it was like that already but old one worked - so I am not sure what is going on

Remove both browns from the plastic connector. Put both into Live on the light fitting, check that all connections are tight.

Electricity off before touching anything

if that doesn't work (it should) post back.
