I have wiring for an overhead light that I've obviously messed up when disconnecting! The light is on a dimmer switch and is connected to other lights throughout the basement on 1 circuit. There are 3 white and 3 black wires, plus the ground inside the box. I believe the blacks were all together originally. I did notice when I took down the original fixture that it was connected to two white wires, not 1 black and one white. Also 2 of the white wires were together and one was alone, but I can't remember which!! How do I figure out the correct wiring, what tools do I need to determine which wires are live, etc.? Your speedy help would be very much appreciated!!!
BTW the metal plate, etc., to the left in the photo is the base plate and wires for the new fixture.
