Hi, i had the same problem and emailed the manufacturer. They suggested that i try to charge it up using a regular car battery charger, simply connect the crocodile clips to the charger and trickle charge for 3 to 4 hours. this worked for me. hope you have same success.
they did say that if this did not fix the problem then i needed to replace the battery, a used motorcycle battery will do the trick.

The solution for it replace the capacitor 470uF in the charger. It should provide 15V at 500mA or get a new adapter. Usually if capacitor dead it could draw ~25V. Have fun.

In most inverters the green light signifies that it is charging. When the power goes out, the red light comes on and the inverter provides backup power. The simplest way to check is to turn off you mains for a second and see if the inverter fires up.. If not then the inverter switch is not turned on. Just flip it to the other side and it will power up.

I need to jump start my car but lost my manual. Are there instructions online somewhere?

If you need to jump the car regularly ... it is time for a new battery. I see you have a jumper device, attach the red or + lead from your power station to the POS or + or Red terminal on the battery. Put the black or - from the power station to the Black or - post of the battery. Start the car.
