When making a new macro within DCC for the NEC1200c it wont save my lamp amperage setting. It saved my other changes but no luck on the lamp adjustment... What button am I missing? Thanks!

I think you have to save it first as a lamp memory on the lamp page, and then add it to the macro. I believe it's under the advanced tab on the title page,it's a lamp setting. It hasn't been that long since I did it, but it's not really obvious. You're logged in as service tech, right?

Look on the "Lamp" tab and under "setup". Set your brightness on the slider and then use the entry key under the setup button to label and enter it into memory. Give the setting a label that relates to which macro it will be used in... ie: 2-D 1.85 XYZ... 2-D 2.39 XYZ, etc, etc so you can tell in the future when creating macros what goes with what. I can post a video tomorrow of how to do it as I am installing an NC2000 which sets up identically. Also let me know if you need an aperture...

A video would be amazing, and yes I am interested in an aperture kit for the nec1200c.

The key to remember is that "Entry" means the same as "Save". I had the same issue until someone else explained this to me.
