    Morning does anyone know where I can get the controller for my LED light unit repaired as the supplier said they no longer can help me or give support on it.

    The unit does not come on at all I had a look but all seems to be fine but want to find out who I can send it to and have it checked out to see if it can be repaired.

    sorry we cannot help toffees, as I said the guy that designed this unit has immigrated to Oz, sometime back already.
    We have developed this units SPECIFICALLY only to add control function to the very old LED units we initially brought in.

    If you don't have the correct tools and know how you won't get it right. The chips are SMD mount. Aka surface mount device.

    If im reading right. The whole unit is a heatsink. The leds is attached to a pcb and that is attached to the heatsink using thermal plaster.
