The batteries are probably worn. Age, failure to completely charge, frequent discharging to below 50% of charge, completely discharging, and heavy use all contribute to wearing out a battery. The most common symptom is the one that you have; the battery will not completely charge.

I purchased a Pronto 41 wheelchair and a Winsunny battery charger. The charger didn't have a manual so I'm wondering what the best procedure is for recharging the batteries. Do I need to turn the...


Joe See my tips on charging batteries No you don't have to leave the chair on when charging. Charge overnite after using it during the day. Always have the charger off when plugging it into the chair and unplugging from the chair. The charger you have doesn't have an on/off switch so get a power strip with the on/off switch, plug that into the wall and plug your charger into the strip use the switch on the strip to turn the charger on and off this will save you having to plug and unplug the charger rom the wall. Always store or put the chair up fully charged. If you don't use the cair daily charge at least once a week. It takes 9-10 chargings to get the batteries operating at 100% so use the chair and charge overnight while you sleep Never leave the charger on the chair more than 12 hours Hope this helps you

My uncle left my hoveround chair out in the rain is this the end of my chair? when i plug in the charger the light on the charger lights up green but the chair wont come on


Angel the charger light should only turn green when the chair is fully charged. If you know the chair isn't fully charged then there is a problem with the charging system. if the circuit board in the joystick got wet then that is a serious problem. If you have a voltmeter you can check the battery voltage thru the charging port located under the front of your joystick Set the meter to 200 volts dc and plug the leads into the 2 outter holes of the charger port. Fully charged you should read 27-30 volts if you aren't getting any reading then the batteries are completly dead or there is a problem with the charging circuit (the reason you are getting a green light on the charger) The joystick will have to be replaced sorry If Medicare paid for your chair then they will pay 80% of the repair costs to get your chair working again If they did contact Roadrunner Mobility @ 1-800-467-2668 to get it fixed thru Medicare Hope this helps

Pheonix plus batery flat,charged up,now it is mobile but all i have on dial is single red flashing led.


John the red flashing light indicates a low battery When you charge the battery your charger should be showing a red light for power and a yellow light. When the batteries are fully charged you should show a red and green light on the charger. Now if you have a voltmeter plug the leads into the two outter holes of the charger port located under the front of the joystick.Without the charger plugged in you will be reading the battery voltage. Fully charged it should read 27-30 volts if you are only reading 20-24 volts then the batteries are low. If you have an onboard charger plug it in and you should read the charger voltage of 29-32 + volts If you aren't getting that voltage then you have a bad charger if you are getting the charger voltage then you have bad batteries and they need to be replaced Hope this helps you

My jazzy is used but i bought new batteries for it but the key pad will only cut on when the charger is attached. and wont cut on at all with out the charger.


super hmmm new batteries? well I would check the battery connections because you should be getting power to the joystick. The charger is providing power thru your joystick to be able to turn it on. Now when you plug in the charger are you getting any movement on the meter at the rear of the chair? If not but staying at zero then the charger is not charging the batteries and your batteries are not hooked up correctly. You will have to remove the seat and cover over the base to have access to the batteries check all the connections and make sure that if the plugs are colored that the red and white plug is plugged into the red and white plug going to the front of the chair and that the black and white plug is plugged into the black and white plug going to the front of the chair. If the wiring is ok then get a meter and read the voltage across each battery they should read 13+ volts fully charged. Plug in the charger and read the voltage at the batteries again if charging then you should read 16+ volts. If the voltage doesn't change then the charger isn't working correctly and if reading a good voltage then the batteries are bad and need to be replaced. Hope this helps

It not charging fully


Stan Issue is probably batteries. If you are charging overnite and never get a full charge then I would suspect batteries. If you have a voltmeter set it to 200 vdc and plug the leads into the two outer holes of the charger port located under the front of the joystick. When fully charged you should read 25-27 volts. If you are reading a lower voltage then I would check the charger. you will have to read the voltage at the battery posts with the charger plugged into the charger port You should read 27-30 volts. If you are not getting that reading replace the charger. Try borrowing a charger from someone that also has a chair If it charges the batteries then you need a new charger if it doesn't then you need new batteries Hope this helps

When charging my jazzy, do I unplug any plugs that controls my jazzy, or leave all plugged in? the reaon ask, green light will not come on the charger, which is onboard charger, unless I unplug controller...


No JJR all the plugs need to remain plugged in. On the Pride chairs the light on the charger will only come on green when the batteries are fully charged. When you unplug the controller the charger thinks the batteries are fully charged and the light comes on. Now the problem is the batteries. If they are old or you have a bad battery then the charger never senses a full charge so no green light. Hope this helps

How do I know when the chair has charged? I see one red, two green, two yellow lights on.


If you have an off-board charger that plugs into the joystick there are two lights on the charger one red(power on) and the other yellow (turns green when fully charged). Plug it into the chair and if the light is green then you have fully charged the batteries. Now if you have the on-board charger the charger meter on the rear of the chair will resd zero when fully charged. Hope this helps ya

Jazzy 1113 ATS Indoor Power Wheelchair: the battery is fully charged but it wont move does...


Hi. Your machine probably has a fault, but I very much doubt that it needs reprogramming.
Are the free-wheel levers in the correct place? Is the machine displaying any fault codes, e.g. flashing LED's and what is the pattern or number of flashes between pauses?
Good luck. Neil.

The battery wont stay charged .when you plug it in to charge the green light comes on ,when fully charged the red light is on,when you turn it on no power


If the charger is automatically giving you a green light when you plug in the charger, the batteries are most likely damaged and will no longer take a charge. This can happen when the power chair is stored and the batteries are not charged for a while. The green light on the charger indicates the battery is full, but instead of being full of power, its full of crud. Try to replace the batteries and see if that will solve the problem.
