Marg Gesture Spot 100If you received a MARQ Lighting fixture stuck with A001 on the display, don't worry! This guide will show you how to bypass the message and get your fixture operational once again.


What does A001 mean?

All MARQ Lighting fixtures are set to Slave Mode by default. When it's taken out of the box and powered on, the display will read A001 indicating that Slave Mode is activated with a particular color and channel selected. This is normal and does not mean that there is a problem with the light fixture.

Once this is configured, your light will start moving as well as displaying the Gobo and colors from the program that you have selected. If you would like to use the MARQ light with a DMX system, the next process will be setting up the DMX in your universe or with the DMX controller.
