Hey everybody. I am new to this so forgive me if I am posting incorrectly. Sunday, the pool was working fine. Woke up on Monday morning and the pump wouldn't turn on. Went out to the Aqualink box by the pool equipment and all the lights were on. Nothing was functional. I turned off the breaker and turned back on the breaker, but nothing happened. I googled and read to turn off the breaker, remove the 9V battery, then turn back on the power to see if it turns back on. Nothing happened. I also read to try all that, but before turning the power back on to hit the reset button. That did nothing. The PDA won't connect to the unit. It only says "Waiting". I talked to a pool guy friend and he said it sounds like my board has gone to a motherboard heaven.
I hardwired my pump so I can at least run the pump until I get this fixed but I wanted to see if anybody had any other ideas of how to fix it. Or if they knew anyone in the Dallas, TX area that repairs motherboards. If no other ideas on how to fix it, does anybody know where I can get a replacement motherboard for the Aqualink RS PDA? Everything I have found seems to be a PDA conversion kit for $800-900. I just want to get it fixed ASAP and get my pool back to normal. I don't want to walk out to the equipment to flip a switch every morning to turn on the pump and currently, I don't have the sweeper wired so that is non-functional. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks everybody.
