Question about X-10 X10 Smart Repeater Remote Controls

1 Answer

My X10 Pro pool lighting controller worked for a while, then quit

My X10 was working great, after I had a bad pool light replaced (apparently this was causing the problem). Then, all of a sudden, it quit working completely. Sometimes I can turn on the pool lights at the panel, and then turn them off with my controller, but then nothing. I can plug in the controller into the GFI outlet inside my panel, and it works fine. Can anyone offer a suggestion?

Most likely the pool motor or other devices are making the powerline noisy. I suggest either getting an x 10 tester or unpluggin hosehold devices until you find teh source of the noise.

Fiberstars pool remote won't work. Model WPC3 - which isn't made any longer. Red light on remote goes on when button pushed, but pump, lights, or waterfall doesn't turn on. They will turn on manually

On the right hand side of the Fiberstars outdoor panel, there are 3 "rocker" style switches. Make certain that they are in the REMOTE position versus the other 2 positions and your remote should work. If not, consult a local pool repair company.

I dropped my x-10 palm pad remote in water

I've dropped a lot of phones and other devices in water! No feeling quite like it :(
Maybe people will advice against this, but I take the hose to my vacuum and (with the batter out) vacuum every inch of my devices. Another tip that has worked is to put the device into ziploc bag of white rice for a day or so. It'll absorb any water that is still locked inside.
Hope it works for you!

Hey edwards879,

It sounds like the remote needs to be addressed to the receiver.

I have provided the steps below to assist you with that, you can also check out this link:

Addressing Remote to Receiver:

1.) Go to System Info screen.
2.) Hold down the SAT button until all mode lights light up.
3.) Enter a number between 1 and 15 using the numeric keypad on the remote.
4.) Press the pound (#) button.
5.) Once the SAT button blinks three times, press record.
6.) Test remote and see if works.

If you reprogram it and it still doesn't work the remote may need to be replaced. If that's the case or if you have any other questions let me know!

Remote control does not respond even with new batteries in, a red light at top of device blinks but the set does not respond

easy way to check if remote control is emitting IR signal is to aim it directly at digital camera lens(cellphone cameras work great for this) while pressing any button on the remote you should see bright light flickering on camera display, if there is no light remote is bad otherwise receiving device in the set is not working

X10 mini controler will not turn off pool light

the unit is probably transmitting but the receiver on the lights is not getting an acceptable signal.

try placing your controller on a line closer to your main electrical panel.

Unfortunately x-10 technology is very unreliable its convenient but its also a pain in the ****.

Do the basics make sure the controller is close to your panel, make sure its not plugged into the same circuit that your appliances, computer or electronics are plugged into as they generate RF interference. sells several X-10 boosters, if your home has a 2 phase power get one that plugs into a 220v outlet that will "bridge" THE TWO PHASES.
