Overvoltage protection does not protect anything ...


Have you opened the inverter to view the circuitry. There may be a fuse on the input -if you're lucky. Otherwise, look for burnt components. If you know how to test electronics, test the components on the board for shorts. So unless you are an electronics tech, I think you may be out of luck.

Do I need to put a inline fuse or does the vector sst 1200 have a fuse or breaker in it


It probably does, but an in-line fuse is still the safest way to go, connected as close as possible to the voltage source as possible. The internal overcurrent protection device (aka, fuse or breaker) in the inverter will prevent the DEVICE from melting if it malfunctions. An in-line fuse will protect EVERYTHING if the WIRING malfunctions.

Reverse polarity hook up blew fuse link. Where can i get the correct fuse link to solder into the stanley inverter pc809 800watt?


Hmmmmm, well that`s unfortunate , i can tell you that most electronic devices that connect to low voltage DC supply's are protected bye a protection diode and the fuse link you think it might be is a circuit trace internal.
an 800 watt innverter draws about 80 to 100 amp to produce the 800 watt output and you must have 2 40 amp fuses or 3 30 amp fuses customer replaceable, if you did not damage the components in your device all you kneed to do is to repair the circuit trace and replace the reverse polarity protection diode to restore normal operation

there are no fuse links internal to inverter power supply's

I had a monitor and xbox 360 power supply plugged into the inverter. It has been working for at least 2-3 months now just fine. Then all of a sudden, it turned off. I unplugged it and thought maybe it...


  • First thing I should ask is have you tried to plug something else into the inverter to see if it is the inverter or a surge messed up your monitor and X-Box?
  • When you say turned off do you get a solid red light when the inverter is on and you are trying to get your X-Box and monitor to work? A solid red light means voltage overload.
  • A blinking red light means you are having a current overload.
  • If the internal alarm on the inverter goes off and shuts down with a red light this means you are having a voltage shortage.
  • If the red light starts to blink this is a temperature overload.
  • Keep in mind that this inverter will start automatically back up as soon as what ever issue it is detecting is resolved. There is no fuse to check inside.

  • If your inverter shuts down from thermal overload then wait 15 full minutes before trying to turn it on again.
  • If you don't have any blown fuses and no burned wires make sure that if you are using over 150 watts and hour you go right to the battery rather than a cigarette light adapter as the stress can burn them wires connecting to the cigarette lighter up.


  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Blown fuse on a ilpi-009 power supply


hi, i don't know the exact power board you speak of, most fuses for power supply protect ac inboard power, and backlights. if backlight inverters touch ground or ground out, this will blow fuse. otherwise, the fused circuit is used for main inboard power going to primary capacitor. take an automotive fuse holder and solder test leads long enough to work with, install 4 amp blade fuse and jumper/solder the circuit to the fuse on the board and power on the monitor. if all goes well, probably just power surge or outlet grounded. if blows fuse, check to board for obvious burns or blown capacitors. if not there, unplug backlights and power on, if still blows, check to make sure no direct conact with board and back of screen. just be thorough about looking carefully for shorts if there is one. and don't forget to replace the factory fuse on the board with the correct one after you finish repairing, don't leave that automotive fuse in. good luck.

No power from inverter


There are some fuses at the output. plus the protection on the AC panel. Start at the Inverter output and check fuses and power there, then work your way out.

Burnt out


internal failure possibly on power side, lower than 300A fault current so unit could not trip i/p protection and as fault was post ac section, continued to burn internally.
it just broke
no breakers tripped out so it kept drawing current until the fault burnt away.


maybe this is what happened, need to know a lot more info to change hypothisis
