Hey guys,

I bought a second hand maxspect razor from a friend of mine last week, and have been running them on my 80g tank. They worked excellently, and I've seen my friend running these lights for the past 2 years without any issue at all. I trust my friend completely, and know for fact he hasn't sold me a dodgy light.

I set them up under the hood of my tank, and they were going very well until this morning, where the whole unit stopped working. The LCD screen is out, and none of the lights fire up at all.
I believe the culprit to be high levels of humidity in my hood, which has fried something in the unit.

My question for you is, does anybody know of any possible parts which I can replace on the unit to get it back up and running? I've pulled it apart, and everything seems fairly clean with no issues. There's no excess salt on anything (this is what made me suspect humidity as there wouldn't be salt present in the condensation).

Any help would be appreciated. :)

I bought my 48 inch Razor about a year ago and recently mine went dark as well. I used a canned spray like what one uses for a keyboard and sprayed all the dust out of the various vents in the ballast and the light came back on after a short power off period.

I emailed their support team askingif there was any maintenance tasks I should perform and they sent me a repair manual of sorts...it illustrates how to disassemble the light itself and check all the various connections.

You might try contacting support, but your light being 2 + years old and you a second owner might have to have to pay something for the support as it is outside of warranty.

So far might light is back and running.
