PAL 2000 not working correctly. Options?

Our pool lighting consists of three PAL 2000 multi-color lights. When power is supplied to the lights, they quickly cycle though the various colors. I like to call it "epileptic mode." I can toggle the power all I want... they never work correctly.

I don't know how these fixtures are put together, so I'm not sure what is up. If there's a controller in each fixture, perhaps that is damaged? It seems odd that they all exhibit the issue.

What I would really like it to replace the fixtures with a single, blue or purple color. I don't really need red, green, etc. Just something to light it up at night and look good. Is there a replacement I can swap in without much fuss?

Thanks!

On my lights, I have the option to let them cycle through the rainbow, or when I get to a color I want it to stay on, simply toggle the power-on switch quickly "off & on". Just a quick toggle which keep the lights in that color I want. At least that's how my system operates anyways.

That's part of the issue... they're all out of sync now. Two of them are just stuck on the cycle mode (except it's more like a freak out than a normal cycle).

Oh .... yikes. That is odd then. You could have a good headache before the evening is over watching that strobe light show. :crazy:

I'm not sure if there is a master reset of some type for those things. Maybe someone else will have an idea or you could call a PAL-2000 distributor to ask.

Did you ever solve your sync problem? I have the exact same problem. Always have to turn it off and back on with the remote, only to happen again a few minutes later.
