    I got a Micmol unit doing the same. I can change the programs but the clock do not run.

    So I set the midnight settings to be 100% on all channels and use a normal wall plug timer to control the lights. That works.

    the only problem with that is all lights on or no lights the other unit turns on the moonlights they slowly get brighter then the blues come on as well and slowly gets brighter then the whites come on and do the same also in the evening i set it to do the reverse

    it could the RTC battery is on its way out, without testing it, its just a guess

    also maybe the press to make buttons could be faulty from salt creep etc
