I have a Finnex on my 20T and was wondering if anyone else with the same light is having the same problem I am.

The 24/7 cycle doesn't provide enough "off" time in its standard program so I run the cycle during the day but turn the light off at night.

It has happened multiple times now that when I go to turn the light on in the morning it flashes but the light doesn't turn on. When this has happened before I unplugged it and it reset, or I re-programmed the 24/7 timer and it works again.

This morning, though, I unplugged and it wouldn't come on, and I tried resetting the timer and it wouldn't come on. I couldn't get it to turn on MAX brightness or adjust brightness up or down... I would hit the power button, it would flash white light once or twice and then go back out.

Thoughts? Anyone else have this problem?

I have it totally unplugged for the day today so hopefully it'll have its act together tonight when I get home.

I messed around with it last night and it's working. For the moment.

Wouldn't turn on when I initially plugged it in.

Messed with the remote battery.

Hit random buttons.

Then suddenly the light came on. :arghh:

Have no idea what I did but I set it to the 24/7 cycle again and let it run overnight, then programmed a custom 24/7 cycle this morning and I'm not touching it again for a while.

I have no idea how I fixed it.

My light does turn all the way off without a second timer (other than the light), my problem in this thread was that it wasn't turning off after I powered it down one night. It's working now and I have a custom 24/7 cycle that has better times than the factory standard 24/7 cycle.

Thanks!
