hi rob the problem is due to an activated thermal overheat switch, you cannot reset this unit as once it is activated it will require a new unit, its a nuisance i agree as i come across this regularly, however its condusive of a scaled up unit so you eventually turn up the shower setting higher to get the water hotter, & inturn activates the thermal switch.
According to which model it is the part is not that overly expensive, you can phone triton direct 7 they will post a new spare to you

The proper fix for this is to hone out the scratches
take steel wool and wrap it around a dowel or piece of wood or ust stuff it into the housing and turn back and forth to smoth out the scratch
if the scratch is real dep you wll have to go to harbor freight and get a honing tol that fits on the end of a drill
the stem should have some type of crown washer that you should be able to get an assortment from lowes , ace or hd
If you are asing for a recommendation for a good silicone I always use GE silicone it is the best
as a last resort (if nothing else works to stop leak
I would take cartridge wall and streatch teflon tape as tight and smooth as possible to block water coming up between housing and
cartrideg this is not recomended by mfg just a spa (my initials) certified suggestion

SOURCE: dripping shower head
If it is dripping from the connection where it goes to the water spout you can unscrew the connection and wrap teflon tape or Pipe Joint Compound on the Threads. Now you can Thread the Shower Head Back on, with No Leak. IF..... It is leaking from the Shower Head Itself There May Be a Problem with the diverter handle/lever. If it has a Pull Type Lever, sometimes you can screw the Lever up or down for the proper water restriction to the Shower Head. However if the Hot and Cold Handle/Lever is OFF, There should not be any Water coming out from anywhere! If water is coming out off the Tub Spout, with the Shower Off, then you will have to replace some washers or Cartridges in the faucet(s) to stop the dripping. You can do this easily....Just Ask) Remember though, that some shower Heads may Drip for a Few Minutes After they are Turned off. There is still water in the Supply neck and needs to escape, either though the tub Spout or Shower Head.......Hope this Solution Helps you with your Drips.....Joe

Probably need to remove and replace the cartridge. Often sediment will tear part of the o-ring or seal on the cartridge and cause this problem...
varies by model, but generally, remove the cap on the knob, unscrew the knob, remove the keyed sleeve, remove the round trim plate & shut off the service stops (verify they are fully closed by pulling out on the valve stem) next remove the retaining clip (needle nose and be gentle) that holds the cartridge in place, then pull the cartridge straight out with vice grips or similar (or get a puller). clean the cartridge, flush out the valve body by slightly opening both service stops, reinstall cartridge and clip, open service stops and see if it still leaks. if it does, take your cartridge to the store (any reasonable HW or plumbing store should have a replacement) and get a new one. then reverse the process to reinstall.
If you send me the model I'll get you more specific instrucitons and pictures...
