LET IT FLOW

Sufficient airflow is important to the correct operation of many products. This is especially evident with HID moving lights where high operating temperatures exist and lamp life and electronics can be compromised as a result of clogged filters and poorly maintained fans. Make sure that during your regular maintenance cycle filters are cleaned or replaced, fan blades cleaned and any dirt or dust removed.

Other electronic products may also suffer from prolonged suffocation, electrolytic capacitors especially can suffer, decreasing the overall usable life of the product.

Make sure products with cooling fans are regularly checked and cleaned.



IN EAR MONITOR MAINTENANCE

Does the sound cut out occasionally in your earphones?

First course of action is to check the cable/earphone connection and to ensure the tubes and filters are clear of wax and residue. Sweat and body oils can get into the connection causing it to tarnish. Try cleaning it with some isopropanol or methylated spirit using a small piece of paper towel wrapped around a toothpick. Also be sure to clean the cable end using the same materials and method.

After this, reconnect the earpieces. If one side still doesn’t work, swap the earpieces around on the cable to determine if both earpieces work. If not, the cable will be at fault and this is a relatively cheap replacement. If the set is still faulty after this please contact the service department about having the faulty earpiece replaced.
