Finnex Planted + 24/7 won't change modes

Used the memory mode a few nights ago to turn on the light to my preferred light level of low blue. Next morning I went to turn it to overcast and the light would not respond. So it is stuck in low blue light.

I checked the remote with phone camera and can see it working. I even put a brand new battery in, no luck. I even removed battery and unplugged light overnight but it is still stuck in low blue light level.

I have pushed all buttons on remote and no response from light

Found the issue, now need to figure out the component and replace it if I can. Plan B is to get out my TC420 and wire it in. This is the side where the IR wire goes into the fixture.

I never got the light wet and have always had a glass lid on the tank. I install the legs when I do maintenance with the lid off, but have always been cautious of not splashing the light

Ended up purchasing a IR board for $20 including shipping from Finnex. For the time being I rewired the light into the TC420 controller. Going to try it out but still have the board just in case. I will post pictures of the new IR board for others is they ever want to DIY repair.
