Gotta go with boots. Everything sounds like a fried circuit board.
Burnt boards can do anything or nothing. I've had them show the first 3 or 4 zones and none of the rest.
Another looked like it worked perfectly when the knob was in position but the memory was dead. Lost everything when I turned by know to the next station. So it took my settings but didn't store them.

Might be time for a new controller.

I don't know - most damaged controllers won't even show me a display of any sort.

There were some storms the other day, but if the clock is bad, how does that explain the fact that I can't even turn the dial to MANUAL ONE STATION or MANUAL ALL STATIONS and it stays off and display reads OFF? Does the clock have anything to do with that?

Sounds like the clock may be toast. Have there been recent lightning storms in your neighborhood?

Yeah, no worky. Tried the "twitchy hand" method to maybe find a short, but to no avial. Also the complete reboot did not work either. I did what the owner's manual suggested and once it returned to 1200 am status, I could not change the date or time. And again no other dial position switches work except for the same I mentioned above.
Any other ideas?

You might have an intermittent problem with the rotary dial, and may need to use a "twitchy hand" when you change dial positions

Also, there is the complete reboot you can perform, by way of the instructions in your owners manual

Hunter XC Controller not working correctly

I have a Hunter XC Controller that is not working. I turn it to the RUN position and the display reads OFF. The only positions on the dial it will pick up are START TIMES, SEASONAL ADJUSTMENT %, and OFF (and by picking up, I mean they will only show on the display and they are the only ones I can change with the arrow buttons). When put the dial in the CURRENT TIME/DAY position and reset the controller, it shows 12:00am on the display; however, when I try to change the time, nothing happens. It still reads 12:00 am. Any advice will be much appreciated.
