Question about Malibu ML200RT - Low Voltage Power Pack -200 Watt - With Timer - Plastic Ho

1 Answer

Unit was working fine today. I was repairing some connections in the landscape lighting cables and checking each connection after completing it. At one point, I was testing the lighting and got nothing. Now with the unit plugged in and timer switched to the 'on' position, I get 0 volts on the output terminals.

    Thanks, checked all the power outlets with a multi-meter and they are working fine. Timer is working on the unit, but there is no humming and no voltage to the terminals. Have rotated the timer multiple times and let unit sit unplugged for several hours to see if unit had it's own internal circuit breaker that would reset it self. No joy.

The power pack should make a humming sound when ON

1) Maybe power to the plug is off
Plug hair dryer into plug and see if it works
Check your GFCI resets in bathroom and kitchen
Check breaker in box

2) Maybe time of day needs to be set
Unplug power pack > plug back in > set on-off trippers
Rotate dial counterclockwise to present time
Then rotate dial two complete revolutions and return to present time

    People report that the power packs quit working the day they work on them.
    The troubleshoot guide for Malibu give a few brief things ... the main thing stressed is replace bulbs as soon as they burn out >> manual says other bulbs will burn out faster, but I think the power pack is also affected, and may burn out too.

    When buying new power pack > match total bulb wattage with power pack wattage
    So 10 - 20 watt bulbs = 200 Watt, so select 200 Watt power pack

We have a Malibu 300 low wattage transformer for 13- 20 watt landscape lights.


Try connecting a lamp (correct voltage, etc) directly to the transformer. Most likely, the wire from the transformer to your lights is broken... The reset button can't reset anything, if there's nothing wrong there.

PC SWITCHS ON BUT NO PICTURE


1. Check to make sure your monitor is on! Some monitors have more than one power button or switch - check to make sure they're all switched on.Check for disconnected monitor power cable connections. Your monitor might be working fine and your only problem may be a loose or unplugged monitor power cable.Note: A disconnected monitor power cable could be the cause of your problem if your monitor's power light is completely off.Check for disconnected monitor data cable connections. Again, your monitor might be turning on without a problem but no information can get to it because the cable that connects your monitor to your computer is disconnected or loose.Note: A disconnected monitor data cable could be the cause of your problem if your monitor's power light is on but is amber or yellow instead of green.Turn the monitor's brightness and contrast settings completely up. Your monitor might be showing information but you just can't see it because these display settings are too dark.Note: Most monitors today have a single onscreen interface for all settings, including brightness and contrast. If it turns out that your monitor isn't working at all then you'll likely not have access to this interface. An older monitor might have manual knobs for adjusting these settings.Test that your computer is working correctly by connecting a different monitor that you are certain is working properly to your PC. Your monitor may be working fine but your computer might not be sending information to it.If the new monitor you connected does not show anything either, proceed to Step 6.If the new monitor you connected does show information from your computer, proceed to Step 7.Important: When testing with the new monitor, make sure you use the data cable that came with it and not the one from your original monitor.Determine why your computer isn't sending information to your monitor. Since neither monitor works, you now know that the computer is not sending information to the monitor. In other words, you've proven that your computer is the reason that nothing shows up on your monitor.Chances are your original monitor is working fine.Test your original monitor with a monitor data cable that you know is working. It's possible that the monitor itself is working properly but it can't receive information from the computer because the cable that connects the monitor to the PC is no longer working.Note: If possible, test using the data cable from the monitor that you successfully tested with in Step 5. If not, purchase a replacement monitor data cable to test with.Note: The data cable on some older monitors are permanently connected to the monitor and are not replaceable. In these cases, you'll have to skip this step and proceed to Step 8 Replace the monitor.

My pc does not give display ? Why


Time Required: Testing a monitor could take from a few minutes to much longer depending on the cause of the problem Here's How:
  1. Check to make sure your monitor is on! Some monitors have more than one power button or switch - check to make sure they're all switched on.
  2. Check for disconnected monitor power cable connections. Your monitor might be working fine and your only problem may be a loose or unplugged monitor power cable. Note: A disconnected monitor power cable could be the cause of your problem if your monitor's power light is completely off.
  3. Check for disconnected monitor data cable connections. Again, your monitor might be turning on without a problem but no information can get to it because the cable that connects your monitor to your computer is disconnected or loose.
    Note: A disconnected monitor data cable could be the cause of your problem if your monitor's power light is on but is amber or yellow instead of green.
  4. Turn the monitor's brightness and contrast settings completely up. Your monitor might be showing information but you just can't see it because these display settings are too dark.
    Note: Most monitors today have a single onscreen interface for all settings, including brightness and contrast. If it turns out that your monitor isn't working at all then you'll likely not have access to this interface. An older monitor might have manual knobs for adjusting these settings.
  5. Test that your computer is working correctly by connecting a different monitor that you are certain is working properly to your PC. Your monitor may be working fine but your computer might not be sending information to it.
    • If the new monitor you connected does not show anything either, proceed to Step 6.
    • If the new monitor you connected does show information from your computer, proceed to Step 7.
    Important: When testing with the new monitor, make sure you use the data cable that came with it and not the one from your original monitor.
  6. Determine why your computer isn't sending information to your monitor. Since neither monitor works, you now know that the computer is not sending information to the monitor. In other words, you've proven that your computer is the reason that nothing shows up on your monitor.
    Chances are your original monitor is working fine.
  7. Test your original monitor with a monitor data cable that you know is working. It's possible that the monitor itself is working properly but it can't receive information from the computer because the cable that connects the monitor to the PC is no longer working.
    Note: If possible, test using the data cable from the monitor that you successfully tested with in Step 5. If not, purchase a replacement monitor data cable to test with.
    Note: The data cable on some older monitors are permanently connected to the monitor and are not replaceable. In these cases, you'll have to skip this step and proceed to Step 8.
  8. Replace the monitor.
    WARNING: A computer monitor is not a user serviceable device. In other words - do not open the monitor and attempt to repair it yourself. If you would rather have your dead monitor serviced instead of replaced then please let a professional do it.

Engine suddenly dies, all electrical goes out as well


Sounds to me like a poor battery cable connection. I am not familiar with the BMW cable routing but it should be simple enough to follow and repair.

First disconnect the negative cable from the battery and leave it disconnected until the final step.

Dicsonnect the positive battery terminal, clean the battery and cable terminal with a wire brush or light sand paper. Apply some dieletric grease or light coat of chasis grease and reconnect the cable to the battery. Follow the positive cable and do the same procedure to all connections down to the starter. Along this route you may notice a smaller wire connected enroute with a fusable link or fuse. Make sure to check these for loosness and or melted wire coating this can be a sign of a loose connection and your problem.

With the positive cable connections completed and reinstalled. Do the same to the negative cable, remembering not to reconnect the negative terminal to the battery until the very last step.

Sorry I don't have more knowledge of the wiring on the BMW.

Hope that helped.
Good Luck

How to make multiple runs for low voltage transformer


Yes, It will work fine splitting it into 2 runs connecting them together in the transformer. It will work better than running them all on one line. Sometimes running them all on one line the last light s dimmer than the first light. I was an electrician for 14 yrs. and I promise you it will work.
