    Why are my spa lights changing colors so rapidly?

    Hi, I've got a light in my pool and one in my spa. I don't know the make, but can look. The problem is the spa light is very rapidly changing colors, at least once a second, it's almost like a strobe light.

    Has anyone had this happen, any ideas what could cause that?

    Thanks, Jeff

    Most LED colored lights have a "show", or different effects available. To go from one show to the next, the power is cycled off and back on.
    One of the shows is indeed similar to a strobe light. Maybe somehow the show has changed.
    Try turning the power off to teh spa light and then back on and see if anything changes.

    I dont know any other reason why it would cycle so quickly.

    Is the light going off between colors? Or is it staying on and "blending" between colors. Blending is how it should function, if it is going off for an instant between colors, you may have a problem.

    We had this happen on pentair 5g intellibrite lights. The engine/ led board started playing up, disco lights and all. It's been stuck on one color for a while now. Just about to replace the led board inside the light.
