Schematic or solution for Mr Christmas light controller

Purchased this product to do the Xmas lights on my house. Wonderfull product BUT when it is cold the unit runs a double speed. Cycling the power will eventually clear the issue and it is fine till next time. Heard on a message board that others are having the same problem but I don't want to wait 30 days to have it replaced. Xmas will be over.

I work in electronics for Fluke and if someone could give me a solution or a schematic I would like to try to fix it for this years lights.

I don't see it on this web site. Any help would be great.

Re: schematic or solution for Mr Christmas light...

Cold, possibly? Try putting the unit under a plastic container (like a large rubbermaid tub) with about a 100 watt bulb (work light) this should generate enough heat to keep it warm. My bet is moisture, rain, snow, cover it with a garbage bag when you put it out at xmas, also makes the unit some what invisible to thieves. just a thought

Playstation was only brought just before christmas and the restart button on the controller has stop working and the lights are not coming on, tries charging but does not work.

Hi there, just sounds like you have a faulty controller. Take it back to the retail shop you purchased it from, and look for a replacement.

Frist make sure your batteries are right size and installed the right way. Then turn on your wii press the A button at this point you should see lights at bottom of controller. Now push the sinc buttons on the controller and the wii system and you should be set.

PSP 3001 brand new wont charge!! Help Please!!

It sounds like you need a replacement part. If you just got it for Christmas, I would take it back to the store where purchased. If not, I would redeem my warranty, and send it to Sony. If you can't do either of those, then you will have to buy this part:

Can't connect to xbox live, connected to network and internet, but as soon as test goes to xbox live connection comes up with updates needed, click continue to update, the green bar goes so far after about...

Try plugging the xbox straight into the modem and not the router, if it still happens, reset your modem and router and try again. Xbox live can be sketchy at times. Also the traffic to xbox live because of the holidays can sometimes screw with the updating and such.

I got an xbox for christmas and i hooked it up and i turned it on and it had three red lights and the fan isnt working?

Contact Microsoft. It will be under warranty since it was just purchased and this way you won't void the warranty by attempting to fix it yourself or having someone else work on it.

Lesson time i pay the full price for the Sony remote... Hope this helps
