Double check all solder joints, make sure chips are in the right way, and make sure you cable from pc to olsen is pined correctly

i bought the ssr's from someone on the sight they said they checked the boards prior to sending...

i needed to solder the fuses on however. 1st time ever doin this... wasn't difficult though. took all maybe 30 minutes to do16!

cables I made and checked after each completion. Used a straight wiing system all the way thorugh and same wiring system on all strands.

used this site to assis t me http://www.lanshack.com/make-cat5e.aspx
used diagram b for all cables. i saw somehwre size of cables made a huge difference. could this also be the case.... This seems to be nice cable.

Thansk for yu help. Hope you can come up with more trials for me i am gettin nowhere fast

can't even rurn on my lights

i am the one who sold it to him.... The adapter for parallel to cat5 is one Brian made. I tested most of the circuit boards before i shipped them, and they worked. Im really confused, but im thinking its a cable or voltage problem as two boards work, but only 1/2 of the board

yep appear to be correct. all the leds go on at the controller 595 the ssr's are not all working only 2 of them are working.. and one is only half working.
tried taking a cable form another ssr to a working ssr and the cable worked the working ssr the non working ssr is still ot working,,,

only 1/2 on both boards?

the 595s arent backwards on the second 1/2 of the boards ?
