    I just installed two ecco 3810 led strobes. One quit strobing after I installed it what would cause this. There is no control modules as they are sealed units.

    Any help would be great

    What is an led strobe?

    Are they led lights or strobe lights?

    Either you lost pwr, gnd, strobe bulb burnt out. Or it blew up internally

    I've never seen a strobe bulb light up bit not flash, strobe bulbs are not your typical bulbs.

    It is self contained, I do not think it has different flash patterns as it only really did one that I noticed.

    How do I get it out of solid burn mode? or are they junk now.

    All this for a salter

    I'm thinking I blew something because it sparked when I hooked it up to a battery charger. now it looks like a fog light. and looks dimmer.

    it is a fixed quad flash unit.
    like i said, it has a 5 year warranty. send it back as defective.
