Light not working
I have installed a new switch and out let, when turned on there is power to the out let and off when turn off.
I have wired in a light and power is flowing through, but the light will not come on? I have tried two different lights and both do the same, I have tested the light and they work ok but not in this new installation.
Can any one explain the problem?

Typical DIY error! Taking a live feed from an existing light switch will never work as there is no Neutral conductor at the switch. You need to avoid putting yourself at risk and hire a part P registered electrician to do the job properly.

sounds like you are missing a neutral cable, regards Terry.
