Repairable smart charger?

I own a Go Power gpsc-12-20A smart charger. I may have fried my it when I accidentaly hooked up the battery post incorrectly. Is there an internal fuse that would have protected the system that can be changed?

There maybe a fuse inside the unit, most reverse polarity is protected by a diode though. It is a sacrificial diode that blows out when hooked up wrong. If you have an external fuse and that keeps blowing, chaces are the diode is bad.

What batteries do I need to buy for my jazzy 1113 power chair?

Your chair uses two U-1 batteries.

Here's the manual:

Since you're about to replace them anyway, you might try something else first..
Your charger is a "smart" charger. If the charge on the batteries is too low, the charger won't recognise them as bateries, and won't charge them.
Get access to the batteries (it's in the manual) and disconnect them. Keep track of where the wires came from. Use an old, non-"smart", car charger to put a quick charge on them. Bring them up to 12 V each, or just an hour apiece.
Hook everything back up and try it again with the Pride charger.

Good luck.

My charger is accidentaly connect into 220v and this is burn. im here in philippine. its this to repair and i use again...

Is this a 110Volt version that you plugged into 220v?

There is a ceramic Fuse inside the unit that might be blown. It is the first thing on the circuit board near the power cord connection.

Open the unit up and post a photo of any burned components ?

Where do i hook up the battery charger on my 2007 1200c sportster? , if there is a diagram that would help.

Take the seat off your bike and connect the red charger lead to the positive battery post and the black charger lead to the negative post. Consider getting a "smart charger" such as Battery Tender or Yuasa smart charger. You can install the "pig tail" and simply plug the charger into that. They won't over charge your battery either.

Good Luck

Mine isn't a ZEN V Plus but it is a ZEN mp3

it could be the battery that is dead, however it is more likely that the chargers your are trying do not match the voltage needs necessary to charge it. just because a charger fits does not mean that it will actually charge it. LI-ion batteries are VERY picky and some can explode (literally EXPLODE as in bang, where did my hand go) if the wrong voltage is applied. here's the thing, most devices have a fail-safe built into them so that you cannot mess up the battery unfortunately the first charger you tried could have fried this making it unchargeable the reason the other charger works is because when a proper voltage is applied the power is split between running the device and charging the battery (this is cut off if too much power is applied) the actual battery takes very little power to charge you should look up the player via google and take not of the voltage and amperage needed to charge it these are important, there is a good chance it will still work. just buy the proper cable to hook it up to the PC this should charge it however that's not a guarantee the olympus mr100 for instance, would not charge via PC only with the dock and wall adapter. good luck and i hope this helps!

P.S. there is still the possibility that the bat. is fried and you may need a new one.

The batteries on my narrow boat ran low and the inverter appears to have cut out. We have recharged the batteries but there is still no power output. The inverter is live because there is a low power...

It's quite possible that you are charging your batteries with a "smart charger." The problem with some smart chargers is that when a battery is drained below a certain voltage, the charger assumes the battery is a lost cause and stops trying to charge it. You may have to get a cheap "dumb" charger to bring the batteries up to a reasonable voltage before turning things back over to the smart charger.

Needs help!

here is the bone head thing that I did. Dead battery (very surprissed never before) so I hooked up charger waited about 45 min and tried to start it would turn but battery still weak, charged a little longer and the same, weaited a little longer and still not enough juice. ALL THIS TIME I WAS CRANCKING THE STARTER WITH THE CHARGER STILL HOOKED UP. Well the last time something did not feel right and after when I turn the ignition to on with the charger still on my tachometer showed about 5000 rpm, with a bigger charger on it shows 7000 rpm, more amps more rpm's??? Anyway I disconected everything and tried to charge battery out of the bike and I guess battery is fried. But I replaced with new battery and now still will not turn and when turning ignition on the tach needle jumps a little and the starter tries but it will not turn. Any suggestions?? fried the starter? ingiter? where to start troubleshooting? thanks in advance,Are you absolutely POSITIVE (no pun intended) you had the charger hooked-up correctly? I've been working on machinery for close to thirty years now, and recently made this stupid, stupid mistake (first time for everything, I suppose). Luckily, it was on an older vehicle, and the battery was dead (and probably wouldn't take a charge anyway), and had no unswitched-electronics to fry. I only noticed what I'd done when I went to check on it, a few hours later. My first Manager job at a Wal-Mart Automotive, we had a kid replace a battery for a Customer on a late-model Toyota; he used the right size but the wrong handedness of battery (reversed terminals). An extremely costly mistake, virtually every electronic bit (with the exception of the ECU - they're diode-protected, apparently) had to be replaced. Most chargers made in the last few years are smart and will prevent current-flow if you goof. Now that I've sufficiently horrified you, are you also absolutely certain that the NEW battery is charged sufficiently? Is it possible that you have a coincidental-failure of say, a float-valve in the carb (if it's carb'd) and it's filled-up a cylinder with fuel and hydrolocked the engine? Not a lot to go on here, hard to diagnose over the 'Net on these things. Also, we don't know your mechanical-ability, hard to just say check the watzenjammit and see if it's worn outta'-round without hoping you know the exact procedure for checking watzenjammits, and the wear-range allowed from the factory. And, as sezurmama suggested - a Factory Manual for the bike would be quite helpful to you here, I bet,,,

Did he fry it?

It just had a bad current that went through it the player shouldn't fry, check the battery voltage see if its still got the original voltage if not it will be under its capacity. Rejuvenate the battery and use the right power supply this time. If its still under warranty take the player and its original charger back to where you got the player from and they might swap it out.
