At a minimum your batteries need to be charged for 12 hrs a day for the first month if not they will not build the capacity and will dwindle and die for example it is at only 25% capacity it says it fully charged but will die quickly this happens because it is charged to its full capacity but that is only 25% of the batteries true potential resulting in short battery life

My Invacare Wheelchair w/tilt & recline doesn't fully charge. I'm on the third new battery change & still same issue. Could it be my circuit board. Could it be me joy stick?


In any device that has a charging circuit that circuit can fail to charge batteries after a time. Ypu could have an electronics technician check what happens in the charging circuit. As you have changed three batteries the fault must lie elsewhere, as you have deduced.

I have a jazzy Select GT power scooter, on the charger I have a red light and green, I put it on charge and have both green lights on now but the controls near the joy stick and on and off light nothi


need more info on equipment to answer ,scooters dont have joystics powerchairs use joysticks if you have a powerchair that has not been charged for over two weeks the batteries have probably died
in this state the charger will not go into charge mode only the power light and poss the fully charge lights will light
as a quick test a 24 volt bulb from a scooter or lorry with 2 wires attached pushed into the two outer holes in the joystick charge socket should light up if it wont batteries are totally dead

How to reset manual brake control and where is it.lights go on( 2 red & 2 green) but jet joy stick is so touchy lights blink and I have to restart it.


If the joystick turns completely off when you try to drive it means the batteries instantly are dropping voltage below the operating capabilities. I have also seen bad connections in the battery wiring harness cause the same thing.

Why does joystick light drop to red as soon as u move motor were done new cable and joy stick


The batteries are to weak to drive the chair. It takes a lot of battery power to start moving but not when you just turn it on. Using a volt meter in the charge port before and when you push the joystick will confirm this. Very typical of wheelchair batteries to do this when weak.

Sounds like the batteries are not getting charged. Check to see if there was some packing material in place to keep the batteries disconnected for shipping.

Yep It sure does Why didn't you charge the chair for 2 months? Charge at least once a week if you don't use it daily. Always break in the new batteries by using the chair daily for 10-15 days charging everynite then charge once a week if it sits for that long without use. Always put up fully charged. Do this and your batteries should last 3 -4 years Charge overnite if you use daily and never charge more than 24 hours Good Luck

Does my Hoveround need to be on or off when I plug it into the battery? Does it need to be on so that the lights show up on the joy stick or do you turn the chair completely off and then plug in the...


Either way will work when charging the batteries and it wion't hurt the chair either way. If you can stand to have the lights scrolling all night when you charge the chair then leave it on If not turn the power off Your charger will tell you when its finished by turning the yellow light green. Hope this helps
