My files do not show Woods 13360.
I am very interesting to identify your timer.
If you have outdoor timer, then timer photoeye can be getting feedback from surrounding lights.
If you have indoor hardwire timer, then white and red wires are probably connected incorrectly.

1) Open following link to identify timer and download manual, and then add a comment and say which timer resembles your timer. From there I can add a comment with possible solution.

2) Add a comment with photograph of your timer so I can identify timer and add possible solution.

3) Add a comment and fully describe every aspect of your timer so I can identify and add possible solution.

4) Add a comment with your experience so others with same-similar problem can benefit.

Also take advantage of fixya expert assistance live.

I just installed a Woods Digital In-wall Timer Model #59018. When I switch the power and manually turn the power on, the lights rapidly flash on and off. This is a three-way outlet and I have red, black...

3-way outlet or 3-way switch?
Woods 59018 only replaces single-pole switch, and does not work for 3-way application. Often connecting timer wrong will cause lights to blink. No harm done to lights, timer or wiring.
There are several timers that work with 3-way. In each case the timer replaces 1 switch and other 3-way switch must be rewired.

Brinks out door timer with photo cell

Make sure photo eye is not exposed to the light, or it will blink or not function as expected
Brinks makes very cheap timers. Return to Walmart and buy better brand such as Intermatic, Tork, GE, or Woods since these timers are supported by known websites and companies

I don't have answer for defective timer. Buy another timer if everything below checks out:
59018 7-day timer has limited 1 year warranty, and appears to be made by Tork
Timer is for 120Volt single-pole only.
Rated for 1000 watt tungsten, 8A ballast, 1/4 HP
Push reset button with toothpick > not necessary to press-and-hold other button to accomplish reset.
After reset, 12:00 am Monday should display.
Programs are deleted. Reprogram timer.

To check, change and delete specific programming, press PROG key until selected program displays, and then set new programming >>> or press-and-hold MODE button and press PROG button again to delete selected program.

Timer has non-replaceable 30-day carryover battery and does not lose programming after power outage, and will retain programs until battery is depleted.

Review wiring:
Hot to timer black.
Neutral to timer white.
Load to timer red.
Ground to timer green.

Lights will blink if timer red and timer white are connected to load together.
Timer will not function if timer black and red wires are reversed. Display will not show.

Just installed the programmable timer and had programmed the clock and on off times. Then realized that it was set for AM instead of PM. Hit reset and now can't set the clock or program. Just blinks...

I test timers.
Some arrive defective, and some go bad quickly.
Industry standard is 1 year limited warranty.
All these timers have reset button that should restore functionality.

You posted under Woods digital programmable.
Open link to download on-line manual and read ez wiring steps.
This timer is reset by pushing reset button, without pushing any other button.
Some timers require on-off button to be pushed while pushing reset button.

I suggest turning off power to timer and see if that 'resets' timer.
Otherwise open link below and run through troubleshoot checklist, and also double check wiring.

If timer will not function correctly, then exchange for new timer.

Resourceful do-it-yourselfer can buy similar timer at Home Depot located near light fixtures and doorbells.
GE15086 -or- GE15071 with daylight savings time.
Advantage is ez exchange if problem occurs, and you give yourself extended warranty.

After installing the light blinks when on. Tried reversing wires and this did not work.

You posted under Woods 59018 timer.

1) This timer is made to replace single pole switch only.

2) If lights are blinking, then wiring is suspect. Probably the red and white are connected together.
Open following link to confirm this is your timer and read ez wiring steps and see on-line manual.
The wiring steps work for all brands of in-wall 7-day timer except those timers that can be used for 3-way switching.

3) Page also lists timers that can be used for 3-way switching, for example in hallway where 2 different switches control same light. List of timers has links to each timer and manual.

I have a 59028 timer, and when I turn the lights on they flash - versus staying on.

59028 is a Woods in-wall timer.
See Woods timers and manuals:

Manual for 59208 timer:

The lights are blinking so the red and white wires are connected together.

Here's what to do Switch has 2 wires.
1) Green wire connects to bare copper
2) Take switch wires and connect them to timer-black-wire and timer-red-wire. Choose either one for now.
3) In back of electric box are white wires twisted together and covered with wire nut. Connect timer-white to these wires.
4) If electric box does not have white wires described above, then connect timer-white to bare ground.
5) Turn on electricity, and push ON-OFF button. If lights come on, timer is wired correctly. If lights do not come on, then reverse timer-red and timer-black wires.
