20 Most Recent Hayward 12v LED Color Logic Pool Light -100ft Cord - SS Face Questions & Answers

That particular swimming pool light has a power-cycle feature that allows you to change the way your light illuminates your pool simply by turning it off and on. A strobe like effect is one of these power cycles. To change it, simply turn the switch off and then turn it back on within 10 seconds. It should reset to another cycle. It is is left off over 60 seconds, it resets to the first cycle, which could be the strobe. If cycling doesn't solve the problem, your bulb has probably malfunctioned and you are going to have to have a repair tech service it.

These swimming pool lights have a power-cycled feature. THis means that you can power down the light and then power back up in 10 seconds and the light pattern will change. It sounds like your light is not cycling properly. Power it down for a full 60 seconds. This will reset the power cycle. Then try turning it on and off in 10 second intervals. If it doesn't reset, you bulb may only be partially functioning and it may need to be replaces.

Your post did not specify the brand of pool lights you have, but assuming they are Hayward, it sounds as though the lights are out of sync... that is, one light is running a different program than the other. If both lights are controlled by the same on/off switch, this is a simple fix; If they are on separate switches you would use the same procedure, but then BOTH SWITHES must be toggled AT THE SAME TIME. To re-sync your lights, turn both lights on and, if necessary, wait for the15-second full-white period to elapse. Next, turn both lights off and wait no less than eleven (11) seconds, but not more than fourteen (14) seconds before switching the lights back on again. Remember... if each light is controlled by a separate switch, then both switches must be toggled "on", "off" and then "on" again at EXACTLY the same time. If the lights are operated in this sequence within the 11-14 second window, they will both automatically revert to full-white light for 15 seconds and then reset to program one. From that point on, as long as you switch the lights on and off at the same time (to cycle through the color programs), they will remain in sync. Good luck.

I used to own one of these. Water got in the seal on mine and damaged the board and I saw a similar effect. If it is under pool warranty from the installation, call the pool company to see if they will replace the computer board in the light or the whole light.

Mine has the same problem. I figured out that the lense cracked allowing water in and shorted out the PCB board that has the LEDs on it. Dried the board off, tried it again, it powers correctly intermittently. Still working on the problem.

You should check your ground fault and reset if necessary. This particular swimming pool light should cycle through a variety of different light shows by turning the switch on and then off for no more than 10 seconds. If it is not cycling properly, you might be leaving the swith off for longer than 10 seconds or your bulb might have malfunctioned.

How do I change the color options?
  • Changing between the color shows is as simple as powering down the light (using a switch) and turning it back on within 10 seconds.

How many color choices do I have?
  • Twelve (12) - There are five (5) static non-color changing options and seven (7) color changing shows. Each show is set and cannot be changed. The shows range from three colors, slowly fading from one to the next to a fast moving Mardi Gras show with over 1500 colors.
  • Click here http://www.haywardnet.com/pdfs/UL_listings.pdf for a matrix of replacement lights. The new light fixture must mount in the existing niche. Once you’ve determined the niche installed, use the chart to see the replacement light that will fit.
    NOTE: To help determine the niche installed, use the model of the light fixture removed. There are some characteristics of old niches and lights (i.e. location of securing screw, how the lens is secured, the label on the light, the size of the can etc.), which may aid in their identification.

The "K" is the Color Temperature. This is a way of determining the brightness and color of a particular light source.

These swimming pool lights are have a power cycle function. It could be that your power cycle is not working properly. Turn the light off for more than 60 seconds to let it reset. Then turn it on and off in 10 second intervals. If the color does not change or the light does not stay on, and you have tested your ground connection, then you will probably need to have your bulb replace.

Defective units, bad seal, or when soemone changes the bulbs, you must always replace the seal. It cannot be reused. Also possible the seal was not installed correctly. If these are new lights, they have a 1 year warranty. HTH

You need to turn it off and on quickly to get it to change to the next color or show. If you are doing this and it will not change, then the light is bad and would need to be replaced. If this answer has helped you, please consider giving a vote.
