Customer Question
Jandy PDA connects but...

Jandy PDA connects but "Waiting" remains displayed. We powered off the system and powered up, but this did not fix the problem. Wiring looks good. Someone online had a similar problem and they had to reset the RF settings. Do you have instructions for resetting the RF settings?

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Is there anything else important you think the Pool Technician should know?

We have a Service 170 fault and I believe that a technician will have to visit to fix this problem.
