Solaris Timer - can you bypass it?

ETS is quoting me $1000 for a timer! I tried having a circuit board repair place work on it, no luck. Does anyone know if you can bypass the timer and make it into a 20 minute only bed? Or use a T-Max timer get the bed to run normally and thereby not need to replace the timer?

Or if anyone has a Solaris timer to sell or know what you can get used parts, I am open to that too.

Thanks.

Re: Solaris Timer - can you bypass it?

Does your bed have face tanners in it? The Solaris 42 is different than the 42 with face tanners. Is your Solaris a 42 lamp with or without facials?

Yes, it has 3 face tanners. (sorry about the delay in replying, I use to think you received an email when someone replies to your post).

Sorry, it is actually the 36 3F, not the 42. A Speed 175 System.

Re: Solaris Timer - can you bypass it?

You mean the logic board? Then no, it controls lots. Fans, etc. You can not bypass it. One board does the whole lot. What is wrong with it?

Not sure what the logic board is. It is not listed on the diagram. It is the timer in the middle, top of bed. It is in a small galvanized metal box and the diagram in the owners manual points to it as the timer. I am pretty sure it is only controlling the timer on the bed.

Re: Solaris Timer - can you bypass it?

Oh, your other question - the bed would stop and then start up again without a cool down in the middle of a tanning session. At ETS they said if it is starting up again right away without a cooldown, then it would be the timer. I sent the board out to Mtn. Electronics (I believe is the name) that someone on here recommended to see if they could repair it, they were not able after replacing everything on it they could - short of the logic chip which they obviously were not able to. So they said it must be in the micochip on the board. Right now it is flashing Lo 3 which they said is a "lock out" code.

Logic board / timer board. same thing. You can not bypass it. It controls the outputs to the fans, lamps, facials....ect. It also moniters the voltage to all of these outputs. It will probably have to be replaced, and YES they are expensive.

Re: Solaris Timer - can you bypass it?

You CAN bypass it. You will need to install a t max timer and a delay relay for the fans. You will lose individual on/off controls for the features but it can be bypassed and it will just be all on, all off with the t max timer.

Re: Solaris Timer - can you bypass it?

When you say lose individual on/off features, what about the customer starting the bed when they are ready. If we set a 2 minute delay, and they are ready sooner, then would there be a way for them to start it? Just trying to understand the pros and cons of going this route. Thanks.
