Lightning is flukey stuff. It is just possible that the strike damaged several (or all) solenoids and/or the wiring, and spared the controller. The wiring should be checked for shorts or open circuits before you declare the timer to be a dead duck. If you live in a heavily lightning prone area, the strictest method to cope is to use hydraulicly controlled valves. A more realistic method is to use an electromechanical controller.

They are right, you would be better off, probably even cheaper, to just buy a new controller than to go hunting for parts for an off brand controller. Thumbs up to the Pro-C as well.

lightning bolt

Several weeks ago a bolt of lightning hit the backyard and since my controller will not allow me to manually open each individual station to blow them out. I had to manually open each valve at the valve box in the ground. I have a controller with the name james hardie irrigation mobel tbi3696. do you think I need to replace the circuit board? is it available as a part?
the clock will allow me to reset it, so i don't think the entire controller is bad. can you advise me what to do to trouble shoot this problem?
