Hello, my ClockTHREEjr has been plugged in and working great for years. This morning I noticed that the LED's started flashing and my first thought was that the clock has a loose power connection. I have reset the clock and powered it on and off with no resolution. The clock still keeps the correct time but the LED's are flashing on and off really quickly as if there is a short. Not sure if it is a part or resistor? I did not put my Clock together. It was purchased already assembled from the original kickstarter campaign. Any help is appreciated. If a video or pics are needed to better understand the issue please let me know. Thanks.

- Sean, do you have another USB power supply you can try?Apr 12, 2016
- Justin ShawOwnerThat is a good idea. If that does not work, a video might help us troubleshoot.Apr 12, 2016
- Yes I do.
I will give that a shot when I get home and if it does not work I will post a video of the clock behavior.
Thanks!Apr 13, 2016
- Hi Guys, thanks for the suggestion. It was not the cable, but the power adapter. I switched it out and the clock is working fine.

- Hi Nicholas, it appears that my clock3 jr has a program problem. At a certain time a day the clock goes blank appearing to have shut off, only when I check it is still plugged in and the red light in the back continues to flash. If I leave it alone and plugged in eventually the time shifts and then all the LED's on the board light up. This lasts for an hour or two and then the clock returns to normal display mode, never losing the time. I didn't really notice until I was home all day. Do you think I need to reprogram the board?May 18, 2016
- Justin ShawOwnerBugger that. If you want to carefully remove the ATMEGA328 and send it to me for reprogramming, I'd be happy to do it.May 19, 2016
