Photo eye is getting exposed to light, so the eye thinks it's day and turns off, but then it's dark so eye turns light back on: lights blink on-off

If this is not your timer, add a comment.

A number of folks are writing in about dusk-dawn-timers flashing.
The manufacturer suggests turning photo-eye away from all lighting when installing timer.
Always aim photoeye toward dark region of yard.
I would unplug the timer and let it reset.
Try timer again, turned away from lights so there is no feedback.
Put black tape over photeye and see what happens.
If timer still doesn't work, then timer is defective.

Maybe photoeye circuit was overwhelmed by intense light converted to electrical input.
I test timers, and 4-6% arrive defective, and most last just a season or two, and then you buy another, but the price is affordable.

Local Home Depot sells the GE 15107 outdoor yard stake or wall mount.
I bought one tonight for testing.
It has no photo eye
It has a dial timer where you set exact on-off times by moving plastic segments on dial perimeter.
For example set timer for ON at 5:30 and OFF at 6:00 am depending on your latitude north or south.

I've lost the instructions for my Holiday Living #10243 6-outlet outdoor yard sake with digital easy set timer. How do I program the yard stake? thanks!


I think the Holiday Living yard stake is made by Woods.
GE sells identical 6-outlet yard stake for which I have a manual with clear instructions and images:

Add a comment to help me identify your timer so others will be helped also.

My yard stake is a tower with 6 outlets and a single button to set, the brand is Holiday Living. I can't get it to come on at dusk and run for 4 hours without the lights blinking. I want a constant...


Put black tape over photo electric eye and see if lights stay on without blinking.

Dusk-type yard stake has photo electric eye, which is visible as round glass ball.
Lights from circuit can cause photo-eye to think it is daylight, so circuit turns OFF.
Moment later, photo-eye thinks it's dark and lights click back ON

Usually 6-outlet yard stakes have 4 top outlets controlled by timer.
Normally bottom 2 outlets are ON full time.
Make sure bottom outlets are not blinking also, which implies problem with outdoor circuit or basic timer problem.
Check circuit with inexpensive circuit analyzer from Home Depot electric department.

Photoelectric eyes go bad easily, but usually they don't blink.
They stick ON or OFF.
