Convoy C8+ Driver

I got a Convoy C8+ in and it won’t go into programming mode, is this the driver I need? QLITE REV.A 7135*8 3.04A LED DRIVER – 17mm

You already started a thread about the issue.

The driver that’s currently in there is this one:
https://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/7135×3-7135×4-7135×6-7135×8...

You can replace it with another 17mm 3V driver such as the QLITE one you mention but it will have a different interface and features which may or may not be desirable for you.
First though, have you spoken to the vendor you bought the light from about the fact it doesn’t work properly? Or to Simon Mao on here who ‘is’ Convoy?

I sent him a message but have not heard back. I rather have the one that comes in it, thank you. I contacted Banggood and they wanted me to send in a video and picture so I did that today.

This was asking what driver I needed.

I cannot see your pic in the OP.

It says, "Sorry.  This person moved or deleted this image."

What firmware did it come with?
Did you buy it from GB, BG or equivalent or from Simon’s official AE store?

If from Simon, shoot him a PM and he will arrange something, otherwise just spend a few bucks and replace the driver.
Just loosen the retaining ring, and solder 2 leads.

In that case, sorry for my assumption.
Succes with the wait, replacing should be easy

I can’t believe this… I went to use the Convoy M2 XP-L and it had all the 8 modes on, which I changed when I got it. So I went to program it and now it’s stuck in low mode and won’t do anything else..
