i need more info on the opto isolator for the 45s. this lag is really infuriating. We checked how much current goes to the bulb and it's rated at 62 volts, but the case says 82volts. not sure if there's something else wrong with the board or if 62 is normal. as of now ive unplugged the 2 bulb cables to bypass it and hooked it up to a variac. but this is too bulky and unrealistic. i got an external box that i'm rigging a dimmer, bypass and timer switch. but i'd rather use my time-o-lite... so please provide a service manual, schematic or pics of the fix for probelmatic part, where i can get it etc.
please and thank you!
I have a dumb question. If the bulb is rated at 62 volts, then why would you need the xformer at all? Would not a good strong diode do?

Any chance I can get a copy of a service manual or schematics? On occasion, err is displayed on the filtration display.
Thank you in advance.
