I had the same thing happen on my original Roady2. I suspect the powerplug port on the Roady2 unit is not getting a good connection. Does the transformer plug have a plastic tip? You can try to cut that off with a sharp razor blade. Sometimes that will make a good tight connection. What I did was buy a used Roady2 unit on ebay. Also another cause is

the power connection is not being made by an internal problem or wear caused by constantly plugging and unplugging the power port. I use a Cambridge XM playdock boombox at home. I bet getting a different unit will solve the problem. The only problem is that finding a used unit might take some work. Good Luck

Problem with Malibu Landscape Lights Transformer ML900TW

Use an extension cord to plug the transformer into a different "test" GFCI receptacle, if it holds on the test GFCI you know that the GFCI for the transformer needs replaced. If it doesn't hold, then the transformer is on the way out and should be replaced. Sometimes motors and transformers will "leak" current and still work, but not trip a regular circuit breaker. A GFCI that is doing it's job will catch it though. Don't force a GFCI like can wear it out prematurely.

I don't have repair for defect timer, except return to Home Depot and exchange for another.
Try unplugging timer to see if will reset. There is no specific reset button on timer.
Test outlet with circuit analyzer to confirm there are no electrical problems.

The label shows advisories: Don't use extension cord, unplug unit when working on bulbs, and plug unit into GFCI protected outlet to protect from surge and short.

Other advisories not shown: Unplug power pack if breaker trips or if power goes out. Wait until power is on before plugging back in. First bulb should be 10 feet from unit. Do not wrap extra cord around power pack. Match bulb wattage and power pack wattage: 200 watt power pack should have 200 watts and not more or less. Replace bulbs as soon as they burn out.
These advisories should not affect initial operation of timer, but are things that shorten life of power packs,

You can buy cheap plug-in timer, set power pack to override and then plug power pack into cheap timer.
Otherwise there are no repair parts for power packs other than on-off trippers.
Power packs come with 5 year limited warranty, so you are within warranty period. Good job saving the date of purchase, you outshine with that detail.

Add a comment with your experience so others with same-similar problem can benefit.

NOT WORKING. PLUGGED IN BUT NO POWER... had windstorm and power outage last night.

Try resetting your surge protector if there is one. If that doesn't work try a different outlet. If that still doesn't work then the problem is either in the units transformer or in the router itself. If it's in the transformer you should be able to find a replacement at any Best Buy or Walmart. However, if it's in the router, about your only real option is replacement.

Timer stops at on and off trips and doesn't turn on or off

The clock motor has gotten weak and now it is overheating and will not recover.
There are no replacement clock motors.
To buy more time with old power pack, purchase cheap plug-in timer, set power pack to override, and then plug power pack into cheap timer.
