I have a Jandy RS OneTouch system with wireless Aqualink Controller 8227. I think the J-Box has gone bad. Wondering if I could bypass all the wireless and just hard wire the controller to the control panel (basically turning the 8227 into a 7954). I do not have any schematics, but have looked at some of the crude Jandy drawings. From what I see I would be able to unplug all the components in the 8227 off the front board (with the LCD). I would then use the four wires (Red, Black, Yellow, Green) from the LCD board directly to the Control panel where the J-box plugs in and unplug the J-box (4 wires).
Please advise if anyone has done this, or if this is feasible?
Currently the J-Box has led3 light up constantly (red). When I touch the SW1 button, nothing happens. On the 8227 controller when I hit the SW1 button I get the 10 flashing green LED. The 8227 when turned on stated “Establishing Communication”. I have tried recycling the power and changed out the 9Volt batter at the control panel. I have also checked all 4 wire connections from the J-Box to the control panel. I do have a Jandy SpaLink RS 7888 in my spa.
