Hope someone can help. I am replacing a light with a traditional ceiling rose with a 3 spotlight fitting. Problem is that I've lost the wiring instructions!
The wires from the ceiling are as follows:-
2 cables. Red wire from each cable joined, green cable from each wire joined, black wire from one cable, and red wire from other cable.

The spotlight has 3 wires- blue, green/yellow and brown.
Using the terminal block, what do I connect to what!
I will try and attach diagram.

I'm no sparkie so electical diagrams aren't a lot of use!

2 cables. Red wire from each cable joined, (Do not change) green cable from each wire joined(connect to green/yellow), black wire from one cable(connect to blue), and red wire(connect to brown) from other cable.

I am assuming one cable is two reds and an earth and other red, black and earth. You may need a connector block to join the two reds some times it is provided and called loop.
