wall light toggle switch blown

HI- Have recently started to refit wall lights, after decorating and repaint- fitted one light, no problem, fitted the other one, firstly would not turn off- second tome, blew the toggle switch. Annoying, but I was not at risk either time

IF you want some assistance tell us about what you did at the switch and we can guide you. If you made any changes at the fixture tell us about those as well.

Sounds like you thought a switch loop at the fixture was wired incorrectly because you saw a white spliced to a black. Am I close.?
