Help! My low voltage, outdoor lighting wont light up – transformer error codes?I bought a Portfolio 300watt transformer for low voltage outdoor lighting and hooked up a 100′ 12 gauge cable (outdoor rated lighting cable) to it. Then I hooked up 4 low voltage lights (12volt 20 watts each). I plugged the transformer in to a gfi outlet that I ran out from the house. And turned it on. The little display flashes “E” and then “1” . The instructions say that the E means that there is a fire hazard so check the circut. So I unhooked every light except one. Same error. I hooked on a different light and unhooked the first one. Same error. Instructions say the cable needs to be under 250′. And the load less than 300w. I am there, except it won’t run. Do I have a bad transformer or is there something that I am missing? Oh, and this is to light my haunt in my front yard, so I am running out of time! Thanks for any advice! Matt

lleibeck3 years agoReplyI was getting the same error message. After checking all connections it finally came down to, LED lighting does not work when looped. I orig ran the wire from the transformer to lights 1 thru 5, the from light 5 back to the transformer, hooking all 4 wired to the transformer. The caused the E1 error. Once I unhooked the wire coming from light 5 everything worked fine. Even tried hooking up the wire from light 5 and unhooking the wire to light 1 and everything still works. Check and found no crossed or shorting connection. My thinking is LEDS do not work in a loop
