So are you are aren't you :-)? You're welcome to it for spares. I
honestly doubt whether it's repairable. I reckon I was fairly close (the
surface mounted capacitor thing) but then touched something I shouldn't
have, and the mobo is a goner. Seems a shame, but far better in bits in
your workshop than in a carboard box in my loft.

It's a twin bulb unit, so to disable the dawn-till-dusk ('courtesy')
light, you'd just unscrew the bottom bulb. Then you're left with a
conventional PIR detector triggered light. If you want to do that I'll
hang on to the unwanted bulbs as spares. (they're a screw fit).

I thought of them for the null. But when I looked at the labels and saw
they were over a year old they're probably better in the bin.

Sure, no problem. Let me know for sure before tuesday so I know whether
to bring them along.
