Spent 2 hrs on this, had enough now :-)...switch for fan in en-suite bathroom, fan works fine

I've changed the switch, it's was old and upside down, think that's confused me.

1 blue wire = neutral

3 black = I think they are neutral

1 yellow = earth

The problem is the 6 brown wires = live, I tried so many combinations, can't figure it out, everything works, but I have to turn on the light in the en-suite bathroom, to turn on 2 lights in 2 bedrooms and 1 light in bathroom, and 1 Ariel in the loft.

Here's the pic, and I bet it's down to 1 wire, when I took off the plate, I took a pic, but I think 2 wires fell out, so it's confused me, can anyone help.

Sorry, but there is no hope of getting a meaningful answer from that pic. I don't often give this advice on the forum....Buuuut this really is a job for an Electrician.
