From the Legacy Manual:


The supplied charging bulb(included
in the package)is used when initially
charging the Cap. the charging process
is accomplished by connecting the
charging bulb in series between the
battery’s positive post and the
capacitor’s positive terminal.(plese
refer to the diagrambelow). it is very
important to follow this process to
eliminate the possibility of damaging
the cap/battery, and other audio
devices. The charging process is
complete when the voltage of the
capacitor reaches the same voltage
as your vehicle’s battery. This process
will take a matter of seconds to
complete. You can use a voltage meter
to check the voltage across your
battery and cup .when the voltages
are the same on both(cap and battery),
the cap has been fully charged. The
charging bulb actually eliminates the
need for the volt meter, when the cap
is fully charged (cap and battery have
same voltage) the bulb will go either
dim or fully out.

My monitor goes for 3 seconds black, every 1 minute


First thing, try to connect the monitor to another CPU and see if its gonna work. If it doesn't, then this might be a capacitor failure. One of the capacitors in your monitor that are responsible for holding up power for proper display is faulty. A faulty capacitor is either bulged(with a hump head) or burst. This causes the monitor to go off a few seconds after you switch it on because the capacitors can no longer hold power long enough for your display. One way to work this around is to take your monitor to a Computer Technician to open it up and probably replace the faulty capacitors

My rooftop coleman AC main wires are burnt


Either the power supply wiring is too long - i.e. a 150 foot extension cord used to power it with poor plug blades?
Or the capacitor is shot, (more likely)
Disconnect Power supply, wait 5 minutes, try to start the unit WITH POWER DISCONNECTED. (will drain capacitor). Short capacitor with well insulated screwdriver, get the new capacitor replaced on ebay or local electrical supply or appliance store (not home depot)

Digital display doesnt work is just off, while a blue bulb remains on, although the car is off


It is possible that the cap was installed too close to a sub and has simply broken because of vibration energy.
