light switch won't work unless other switch is on
My light switch won't work unless other switch is on, why?
Got a bit of a weird electrical issue at my place. In one of my rooms, there are two light switches that control the same light. The problem is, one of the switches won't work unless the other switch is on. It's like they're playing a game of tag, and it's driving me crazy!
I've been doing some research and it seems like it could be a three-way switch problem or maybe a wiring issue. But I'm not an electrician, so I'm a bit out of my depth here.
Has anyone dealt with a similar light switch problem? What was the cause, and more importantly, how did you fix it? Can this be handled with a bit of DIY, or am I looking at getting a professional electrician involved?
Also, are there any safety precautions I should be aware of when dealing with electrical issues like this?
And one last thing - if I need to replace a switch or some wiring, any advice on what to look for when buying?
Any insights, advice, or experiences you guys can share would be a massive help.
Thanks in advance!
