Hi All,

Highly appreciate some help with some wiring as I can’t figure it out.

I have a double switch light at the bottom of my stairs.
One switch controls my hall light and the other controls the landing light.

I have a single switch at the top of my stairs which controls the landing light also.

When the hall light is up(?) the landing switch works as normal.

When the hall light is down (?) the landing light does nothing.

I have attached photos of both wiring for some much needed advice.

Is this before you have done anything to it or have switches recently been changed?

We will need more detail of the downstairs switch.

Are those two 3 core&earth cables with one cable in the switch nearest the camera and the other in the other switch, are there any joints in the box similar to the switch upstairs.

And congratulations with starting your first post with some brilliant pictures. (y)

EDIT: IF THERE ARE NO OTHER CABLES DOWNSTAIRS - It looks like all that's required is swapping the two reds upstairs

PLEASE TURN THE POWER OFF BEFORE MAKING ANY CHANGES.

Hi Suray - I have recently changed the landing switch - old switch photo attached.
It wasn’t working and did exactly the same thing before I changed the switch

Are there any other cables downstairs that don't show in picture.

If no more then MAYBE this is what's required.

Hi Sanray

Do you suggest simply swapping the com and 1way ports in the landing switch only?

All the cables which enter the downstairs switch are shown in picture.
