    Aquarite lights not on - bought new board - lights still not on

    As the title says: I had the dreaded no lights symptom including the short no flow and the 20 seconds generating indication. I bought a new board, installed it, and the exact same symptoms remained. Any solution for that?
    Thanks,
    Gerd

    Which board did you replace ? The main board or the display board ?
    23,000 gallons IG gunite, pebble (I think)
    Hayward SP2610X15 1.5 HP Pump, Hayward sand filter
    Mineral Springs SWCG (it's actually Hayward/Goldline), Hayward Goldline T-CELL-15
    Polaris pool cleaner (with booster pump)

    Did you plug in the flow switch (sensor) ? Is it working ?

    Yes, it's plugged in and I believe it's working, at least it's showing salt content, pH etc. The uppermost power LED never came on.

    If you connected all the wires from the power supply correctly and power LED doesn't come on then maybe the power supply is broken.

    BTW, one thing I learned when I repaired my board was that those wires should be removed by using pliers to pull the connector. I didn't, I pulled them by the cable and one of the cables came off without the connector. So I had to replace that. Maybe you should check those connectors too, if you made a similar mistake.

    Strangely enough, I just noticed this morning that the uppermost two LEDs ("power" and "generating") come on occasionally, but mostly everything is blank.

    So did you verify that the connectors are still intact (and properly connected) ?

    I would take the old board and replace the input resistor, since that is almost always what fails on the main board. After it is repaired, put it back in and see what happens. You can buy the part or $2.50. The shipping cost more than the part. Order a few to be safe. The easy way to replace it is to snip the legs off the old one and solder the replacement to those. That way there is no soldering to do on the circuit board. It takes about 15 min. Leave the old legs as long as you can, so you can wrap them over the new ones legs and solder.
