photon 32 v1 clock wont keep time

help please,I have two v1 photon32 units I bought from reefbreeders many years ago,they have worked great over the years,I just came across an issue with one of the units I believe was one of the very first units made,the clock will not keep time,I can set it to the correct time but it wont keep time,and the lights wont ramp up or down because of this,I hope someone knows a easy fix or possible I can replace the main display with a new one if I can find one.
thanks everyone for your help in advance,mike

Hey Mike,

I am sorry to hear that! We actually do have the controllers in stock. They are listed on our website under the parts tab. The part you need is the "photon G1 main control panel"

Definitely, the only component that controls timing is located inside the controller.

I'm in the same boat as Mike. My controllers never would hold a program when there was a lose of power. In the last month the controllers on both of my Photon 32's will not keep time. I have to use a external switched timer to control on/off cycles.
Bought and install new led boards last year, so not sure if it's worth spending more $$ on these lights.
