I answer questions for free here at fixya.
I know timers and electrical devices.
If the following information does not help, add a comment and I will work on the problem further.
You posted under the Intermatic ST01C timer.
I assume this is not a new installation, so we know the wiring is correct, and your programming worked correctly in the past.
You have the timer set up for dusk to dawn.
The manual has troubleshoot section.
I have read the manual and tested&wired the timer and programmed the timer.
A low battery can cause this kind of problem, even if BATT is not flashing on screen.
The manual also says when encountering a problem, you can reset and then reprogram the timer.
The manuals says to check for loose wires, and defective bulb.
The timer does not work on circuits longer than 100'
The timer does not work if there are underground wires.
The symptoms you describe sound like loose wires or a light bulb.
I would check the wire nuts at the timer and at the outdoor fixture.
Change the outdoor bulbs.
As last resort, reprogram the timer.
These electronic devices go bad, and the ST01C has a 1 year warranty >>> combine the short warranty with the long troubleshooting section, I believe the product fails frequently.

Lumark makes a 70 watt HPS sold at Lowes
If this is your product:
Add a comment and tell me what color wires are on the back of the HPS, and what color wires you have, and what type of fixture you are replacing.
I will probably be able to help.

The Utilitec 0192773 timer has astro dusk-to-dawn functions.
The manual is very unclear at the exact point you need it to say how to set dusk-to-dawn.
The following page has the manual, with explanation how to find the astro dawn-to-dusk setting
When you are programming the timer, press TIME button and hours start flashing.
Press the +/- button ... the trick is to keep pushing the +/- button until it finally gets to astro, and the sun-moon symbol shows on display.
When the sun-moon symbol shows, the display also shows AM.
Press the +/- again and PM show.
So if you want Program1 to turn lights ON at dusk (PM), then your display needs to show: 1 ON PM sun-moon.
To continue setting astro, do not set hours, just press PROG button.
Then repeat the steps above until: 1 OFF AM sun-moon show on display.

SOURCE: Will the HB51R have to
The dawn to dusk feature is activated by photoelectric eye that senses when it gets dark.
If you put timer in a dark room, it will turn ON ... let's say to operate Christmas tree after you leave a room for the evening.
But if room stays dark, the timer will not sense when to turn off unless you also set timer to turn off 1-9 hours after ON.
That being said, a Christmas tree might make too much light for the timer's photoelectric eye.
Make sure photoelectric eye is turned away from direct light.
