Question Hayward AquaTrol Issues

Our saltwater pool has a Hayward AquaTrol salt chlorine generator. When I turn it on the display screen comes on and shows the salt content and the filter pump kicks on, but none of the LEDs light up including the "Power" LED and it never says it's generating chlorine. When I click through the diagnostic read-out, the voltage display shows between 5 and 8 volts when it is supposed to be somewhere around 30. I got my meter and read out all of the voltages as per a Hayward diagnostics manual I found (http://splashottawa.com/wp-content/u...iagnostics.pdf) and they all checked out good. Another thread on hear from about 5 years ago had a similar sounding problem and it came down to a part called a varistor. Any insight on this would be great. Thanks in advance.
