My trust Aputure COB 120t stopped working today. It keeps turning off after about 8 seconds. Watch the video to see the solution that fixed it for me:
It keeps turning itself off after about 8 seconds. Doesn’t matter if i’m at 10% or 100% power, it would keep turning off. It was working fine before and this suddenly happened.
Now, every time I power it on, it shuts itself down within 8 seconds.
I found the SOLUTION! The fan was stuck so I used a small screw driver (a thin pen also works), to spin the fan and nudge it so that it will start turning as I turned on the light.
This FIXED the problem! I LOVE this light a lot, I like the power of the light, the color of the light, the versatility…
…it’s also quiet and compact.
If it continues to work well, I will buy more! I hope Aputure’s customer service will take care of me.
UPDATE: Customer service has responded!
