Hi, I am a high school tech theatre teacher. The dimmer we have in our school is older, it was installed brand new in 1993. Lately we've been having some issues with lights flickering - they are the same lights, and sometimes they flicker and sometimes it takes an hour then they start flickering. I read the discussion article about common repair issues, and think it may be a bad Z45 ETC part # Z207. However, when I look on the internet I cannot find this specific part. Is there somewhere I can go to find this chip? If not, is there a compatible replacement part that works?
Actually that shop search returns a new DMX chip which is not pin compatible with Z207 and would damage the new chip. You can order part number Z207 from your favorite ETC dealer.

Thank you! I looked at that chip earlier, and couldn't determine if it was a good fit. I'll look for an ETC Dealer in my area.
