    I don't know what else to say.

    Earlier you said there were no beeps anywhere. It doesn't make sense.

    Why don't you wire it up the same way as the light you removed with the help of the photo you took or diagram you made before you removed it?

    Unfortunately I did not take a photo of the previous light that was up and how it was wired. The photos posted are of it's current state.

    The previous light was an old strip light with a mess of connected wires... none labelled. It's going to be something really simple that I just cant see.

    My original 'beep' diagram was incorrect for a normal lighting circuit.

    I have amended it.

    I really think that would be by far and away the best option.
