This is annoying...It is a combination...Flip up(red) .Down(blue)..It's trial and error .

I, too, am totally frustrated with this trial and error method! There seems to be no logic to it. How are we supposed to get past this roadblock? I want to get on with the game but am stuck with this piddling puzzle!

Here is a hint I have - you don't have to turn all of the lights blue. It is a darnest puzzle. I took a deep breath.

As there are only 2^5 (32) combinations, I did this by brute force.

The puzzle with the lights is enough to make me delete the game and play something worthwhile.

I've been on this puzzle for over an hour. It is impossible for there to be a combination I haven't tried. Just about to give up. I have all the Art of Murder games, but it doesn't look like I will be playing them. Bad word, bad word.

OK, a note for others stuck at this point. The game will not tell you when this puzzle is solved. You have to click a switch, step back, look at the result, go back to the switches, click the next, step back, etc. When there are five circles of light the puzzle is completed. Hope this helps someone to not be as frustrated as I was.

I think it varies for each player. Mine were:
Top: blue, red, blue
bottom: blue, blue

Thanks Raindear 82- I'm just at that point and would have been forever without your hint about stepping back. Now at least I feel like I might have a chance!!! lol Going to go try it now. Thanks again
