hi rob the problem is due to an activated thermal overheat switch, you cannot reset this unit as once it is activated it will require a new unit, its a nuisance i agree as i come across this regularly, however its condusive of a scaled up unit so you eventually turn up the shower setting higher to get the water hotter, & inturn activates the thermal switch.
According to which model it is the part is not that overly expensive, you can phone triton direct 7 they will post a new spare to you

That sounds like a water heater problem, wheres the heater at in your home. If it is effected by the outside weather i.e. the heater is in a cold environment then it would effect the hot water output. try turning up the thermostat on the heater if it is gas then it should be knob on the outside if it is electric you will need to remove the top or the bottom cover and adjust it with a screw driver. If this does not work the let me know and we try some other things. With the weather/temp outside effecting the water temp in the shower then I have a hard time believing it is the shower its self.

I had a brand new Triton Rapide 3 with this issue, we had good water pressure but the light on the front would keep coming on.
I found there was a micro switch located at the front almost dead center of the shower, couldn't miss it when you removed the cover. A plastic arm below this switch is raised when the water pressure increases tripping this switch and allowing the heater to come on.
I found two things wrong with this, one this plastic leaver was thin and bent easily and secondly the switch did no line up overly well with the lever. Easily fixed, I cut an inch off the end of a zip tie or panduit strap, and super-glued it to the top of the lever (not the switch as the glue will probably ruin the micro switch.) 5 minute job later and with the shower back together it works beautifully. My wife will be happy, you wouldn't believe the torrid of curses I got this morning having only replaced the old unit last night.
Probably don't need to say this but, make sure you isolate the power before removing the cover.

how on earth is this related to gaming consoles or PS3 ??
Please post under correct sections next time.
Anyways, it looks like a common problem for the Triton Shower, and it might cost you some $90 to fix it.
