Google search revealed the following - "The 2800 is rated at 10.6 VDC, 8.5 VA which translates to 1.25 amps",
which is rather confusing as VA for practical purposes is the wattage (of the output) and 10.6 volts at 1.25 amps is wattage of 13.25 while the quoted VA of 8.5 suggests a current of only about 0.8 amps is available which I think is somewhat unrealistic. This is presumably for each output...

No power, No Display - test voltages on secondary side of transformer were pulsating
Check diodes 6230, 6240, 6210. They are BYW98 Rectifiers, in my case it was s/c. Thanks to Sparky for similar tip - Philips CD Model: CDR770/00
No power and no output
Replace C6 with 4.7uF, 250v
No power, voltages on secondary side of chopper were very low and pulsating

most power supply units will fit you can get a larger wattage output eg: heavy duty if you have added any more devices to your computer more RAM,a larger hard drive,more cd/dvd drives these added will put a greater need for wattage output on the PSU
you should check all the electrical connections before you make a decision and make sure they are the same as as the ones that you will need to run your computer also
check the measurements inside the frame to make absolutely sure it will fit
you can get lots of PSU

My malibu landscape 300w transformer does not want to come on


Check that power pack is getting electricity.
Power pack should make a small humming sound when on.
Scratch a wire across both terminal screws and see if there is spark.
If a bulb burns out, and is not replaced, additional voltage can burn out other bulbs.
Power pack should be unplugged if bulbs are not burning since that can burn out power pack.
Change out a couple bulbs and then plug-in power pack.
Check connections where lights tie into wire.

My power pack was doing same thing, I bought another power pack from Home Depot to check my lights. All but 2 bulbs were burned out. I replaced bulbs and returned new power pack.. and then power pack quit for good a month later.

I found tips to preserve power packs:
1) Match wattage of bulbs with wattage of power pack
-15 each X 20 watt bulbs = 300 watts, so install 300Watt power pack
2) Installing a 500W power pack on 300W of bulbs will burn out bulbs and power pack.
3) Replace bulbs as soon as they burn out or other bulbs will burn out and power pack will burn out.
4) When working on bulbs, unplug power pack or it may burn out.

The lights stay on all the time and won't shut off. The front ones work fine but not the back lights. Any idea's? thanks,


Unfortunately when the power pack stops working there is no solution.
Your power pack has electricity so that is not the problem.
The bulbs turn on, so the bulbs are ok.
That means the power pack has malfunctioned, and needs to be replaced.

1) Match wattage of bulbs with wattage of power pack

My timer is running and I have swapped the black and red pins to turn on and off the lights but the lights do not come on? Were do I find the model number?


My model number is on a sticker inside the door.
I have the 300 watt, and it matches the total wattage of my bulbs.
A lot of people ask for replacement Malibu tripper pins on Fixya, so your tripper pins might be worn down. I cannot find Malibu trippers, even on e-bay. And the new timer clocks are electronic.
Check your circuit breaker to see if unit is getting electricity, including GFCIs in bathroom.
Plug hair dryer in same plug as Malibu to see if there is power
Brush a wire across the screw terminals to see if there is any spark going to bulbs.
It's unlikely that all the bubs failed at once, but if power pack shows spark on the terminals, the bulbs should be getting electricity.
If a couple bulbs burned out, the power pack can burn out the others.
Unplug power pack until you get bulbs replaced.

Unfortunately if the power pack stops operating, it is broken.

Where can I find wiring and set up instructions?


Below is link going to malibu.com manuals
http://www.malibulights.com/customer_service/owners_manuals.aspx

Below is link going to a guide for setting up your malibu lighting
http://www.malibulights.com/guides_support/low_voltage_planning_guide/select_your_power_pack.aspx

Let me save you some money:
1) Match up wattage of bulbs with wattage of power pack:
15 - 20 watt bulbs = 300 watts = 300 watt power pack ... if you buy the 500 watt power pack for 300Watts of bulbs, then it will burn up the power pack.
2) Replace bulbs as soon as they burn out or other bulbs will burn out and the power pack will burn out too
3) When working on bulbs, unplug power pack or the power pack may burn out

You posted under Intermatic-malibu power packs.
Wattage of bulbs must match wattage of power pack or bulbs and power pack will burn out.

Your power pack might be damaged beyond repair.

1 Answer

Have a low volt intermatic transformer where only one side works.


If you have 2 sets of A and B terminals, then power pack is usually rated for 600 watts, with 300Watts on each A and B.
I don't know how to tell what wattage power pack is, except add up total watt amount of bulbs that originally came with unit. That should give approximate value of power pack wattage.

Open following link for Power Pack troubleshoot checklist and warranty information and other tips to keep power pack working longer:

Upvote the help.
And take advantage of fixya expert assistance live.

Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.
