malibu landscape light problem


Hello All and thank you for allowing me on this great website chatroom. I installed a 300 watt Malibu low voltage transformer yesterday. When I connected the first light last night, nothing happened. I should note that I had the setting on automatic and not using the timer. I then pressed the reset button which caused the light to kick on. It only lasted a few seconds and kicked back off. I then turned the setting to ON and the light again came on but back off when I turned back to the automatic setting. Can anyone provide some insight on why this is happening please? Thank you, Bob

Ayuh,.... Is the Automatic, a photo-cell circuit,..?? come On, in the dark,..??

If so, My guess is, it was to Light where you were workin',.......
Put yer finger over the sensor, block the light, 'n it should come on in a few seconds or so,....

Hello and thanks Bondo for the reply. I connected the light around 8 pm cst with no light around at all. I also tried the hold your finger over the electronic eye as well. It is very strange why this is not working.
