Hi all,

I've got 6 3w LED's and the driver I'm using is 18w 1.5A, but after wiring it all up they don't power up.

I tested them with just the power supply without the driver (for about 2 secs!) and they work fine.

Anyone got any ideas? This is the driver;

What LEDs are you using? I have 4 Cree XML 3w. Awaiting my driver. Could it be a faulty driver? Is it the right driver for our mains output?

Sorry mate didn't realise you ere not using cree XML as written by someone else above, depending on what led you are using the driver current might be a bit high for these, think most 3w led's are 700-950ma and your driver is 1500ma
