I drove by a site tonight and some c9's that I put up were going on for 5 seconds, then coming off for 5 seconds. then the process would repeat. they are located near the ground, on stakes. about 120' or strand.

i went back once i got in my service truck and they stopped flickering and looked just fine.

i metered the plug at 113.8volts. is that too low to operate c9's at?

also, i was thinking maybe the headlights from the road by these lights were caushing the photocell to freak out. any thoughts?

Try changing out the timer- just went through this tonight. See if you hear the time cycling on and off.

your photocell timer is too close to the lights. it thinks it is night, then day, then night...

That's what I was thinking my problem was until I moved the time switch to the "ON" position- but it kepts doing it. I replaced the timer and it was fine. Although the first year I did lights this haunted me for a while. haha
