My clock has been rock solid for 5 years running 24/7. With no maintenance whatsoever lol.
Now it started resetting every time an animation would start and wont display the menu.
It just flashes and resets.
I changed the coin battery (oddly it wasnt dead), I flashed the sdcard (B134 image) but no joy.
I bought a spare clock board a couple months back but it has a factory defect on it. The battery holder is missing the metal clip so it wont install its battery. Its surface mount, so a difficult repair. I should send it back but for now I hot glued the battery down and it works.
I changed everything and even tried 4 different sdcards, still no joy...
The problem ends up being the power supply!
On a hunch I changed the jumpers from orange to either just red or green. The animations went slightly longer before the reset.
I happened to have a spare power adapter, since I bought 2 being from China...
I plugged in the new supply and everything is back to normal. In fact the clock is brighter and more vibrant!
It amazing how one gets used to things like a clock lol. The game room seems to lack life without it.
So, if the clock is resetting and has lost its settings and just keeps repeating the verbose startup text.
Most likely its the power adapter.
These clocks need quite a bit of power to light up the displays and not reboot the controller.
