My Pentair SAM has stopped changing colors = stuck on white. Suggestions?

PRODUCT doesn't exactly match but oh-well, here goes: My Pentair SAM [Spectrum Amerlite] PN# 619408 Rev B [10-31-2001] installed in about 2003 is stuck on white. Pentair and my local pool store both want me to replace this HALOGEN system with a new LED light version [aprox $500]? Does anyone have any experience in taking this old light apart and diagnosing? Thanks, Jim

SOURCE: Pentair Great White pool cleaner not walking

Make sure that your automatic pool cleaner is getting the proper pressure from the return lines to move the wheels. Also, make sure that the filter bag is clean and the the impellers are free. Both of these can restrict movements. You might also want to check your hose and make sure that there are not blockages/knots/etc.

SOURCE: I have a Intex Krystal

The most like problem is the chlorinator has stopped working.
Most salt water chlorinators have a circuit breaker which cut power to the electrolyte cell if there is an overload or short condition. Check the circuit breaker, reset is necessory.
The other possible problem with the chlorinator is that voltage/DC current is supplied to the electrolyte cell via a low voltage transformer and rectifying circuit. if these components are faulty then the electrolyte cell will not produce chlorine. When the electrolyte cell is working normally you can see tiny bubbles of hydrogen and oxygen coming off the cell.

Connect a Wii to VCR

Take the Wii's audio/video cable and the power cord and hook them up in the back of the Wii.
Take the Wii's audio/video cable and plug it into the 'audio-in and video-in sockets on your VCR.Make sure you match the cable colors with the input colors.i.e white goes with white,yellow with yellow and red with red.
Take the RCA cable which looks like the picture below,

and plug one end of this audio/video cable into the 'audio out' and 'video out' ports on the VCR.Make sure the cable and ports colors match.
Now take the other end of the RCA cable and plug into the 'audio in' and 'video in' ports on your TV.Again make sure you match the color connections.

Hope it helps.

Pedals and chain turn but back wheel doesn;t move.

With a small correction to the punctuation your question goes into a search engine verbatim and finds lots of guidance.

"Pedals and chain turn but back wheel doesn't move"

WE can't see what you can see and playing 20-questions only wastes everybody's time when the problem is physical or mechanical so from here you should do some Web Searching and connect the logical dots that match your exact symptoms.

Wild guess: The cassette/freewheel could have the pawls stuck in a disengaged position.

Search engine queries starting with "how to..." usually turn up answers, too.

Um, this product doesn't use color coded or proprietary speaker wires nor does it have a connector for Center, which is built into the stand as well as the front speakers.

How do i properly connect a wall lamp (has white, black & ground wires) to the switch (1595swt) there are 2 black cables coming from the back of the switch unit, but no polarity is indicated and the...

Hi Mark,

If the stranded wires are color coded silver and gold on the switch (you'll have to take back the insulation to see this), then the gold goes to black and the silver to white.
If both are silver, connect either, it doesn't have polarity.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate a 4 thumbs up. Thanks,
