No lights on joystick


Here is a parts catalog for the M41. http://www.invacare.com/doc_files/06_108.pdf

If it was working fine before you swapped the batteries then you did something to interrupt the current flow. Pages 49/50 show the location of the controller with a picture. Unplug the connections here and make sure they are clean and in good shape. Make sure all other connections are clean and tight.

If you have 24V coming off the batteries into the controller, and 24V going out to the joystick from the controller and still nothing is working, then you will probably need to get ahold of an Invacare service tech to replace the joystick. Before he does that he should swap out the old joystick with a new one to see if that is the issue. Invacare parts are pretty pricey...joystick by itself is over $500.00. If the controller is shot, then you can double that cost. Sometimes, both need to be replaced as they can kill each other.

If the chair is old or has a lot of hard hours on it, you can usually shop around on Craigs List, etc and find a good newer/near new chair for about the same price as a new joystick replacement.

Jazzy 1143 has new batteries all lights are good still is very slow


it may be that the joystick has been programmed for indoor or slow reaction user, you will need it to be reprogrammed (this is normally a very cheap and easy thing to do, but you need a programmer or to get a mobility shop to re program it) with most joysticks it just plugs in to the charge / data 3 pin socket on the joystick and takes less than 5 mins. a lot of mobility shops will reprogram free in the hope you will use them for further work if needed. phone a few and see how you get on, you will need to be able to tell them the type of controller (joystick) your chair has, if you are unsure do a google "image search for "wheelchair controller types" look at the images to identify the type you have fitted.

Can a battery swell in its compartmnet


Yup. Old batteries get fat when the gell dries out or when the battery gets overcharged. the internal components of the battery will get hot no matter if its a wet cell or gell cell battery which will cause the battery case to swell.

Why do you want to byass the power module? the lights you mention are ok just need to charge your batteries a little longer to get all the green lights on. If you changed the controller, plug all your cables into the new one and try the chair it should work like its supposed to. I really don't know what specific problem you have. Is the chair not working when you tun on the joystick? are you getting any flashing lights on the joystick? are your freewheel levers in the drive position? Let me know something morwe specific Thanks

work on the assumption that a battery needs 15 mins of engine running to fully recharge after one start,so connecting a gell cell battery to the cigar lighter would work perfectly well,especially if the cell was down on charge.

I have a quantum 600 power chair. when I move the joystick in any direction the chair goes into drive like normal but doesn't want to move and moves very slowly even after i change the speed setting.


Sounds like you need new batteries. Assuming that the chair is programmed for a faster speed and has gone faster in the past the most likely culprit is old or discharged batteries. The charger or plug may be at fault also. Also check that the charger is plugged in and the indicator lights of the charger are on.

I have a invacare The joystick mk5 will not lite up batt. are new


Some chairs, like the M91 are a real bear to replace the batteries and connectors can get knocked loose in the process. First, using a voltmeter you need to see if the controller is getting power. On the DC setting, use voltmeter at the three-pin female connection at the joystick that is the charging port. The two pins that are opposite each other are the "hot" pins, and your meter should read about 25 volts, +- 2 volts. If its 0, there is a connection that isn't made from the batteries through to the controller, or the controller or joystick is shot. If you do have power to the joystick, then it's probable that the joystick is shot. A new one from Invacare is pricey, around $1,000.00 I have found a new site that can repair most makes. I have not used them, so cannot vouch for their work, but give them a call and see what you think.

If you don't have power, start at the terminals from the battery, and follow each wire back to the power control box, unplug and replug firmly as you work your way back. Check all fuses on the way. Then check all of the other connectors inside the chair, unplug, and reconnect again. Unplug and reconnect the wires leading into the power control box, and then restart chair. If no lights still, then the power control module is probably the culprit, but the address above fixes those too. The joystick and the power control module work together to make the chair operate safely. Good luck

Right Joystick. . .


I had this same problem with my 360 controller (after modding it, but the solution should be the same..) If you pull up on any 360 joystick it will stick the same way.

The quickest fix would be to take some sandpaper on the inside of where the joystick touches the controller shell, sand it down just enough so the joystick is moving smoothly.

More professional ways would be to cut the little piece of metal that sticks out and goes into the joystick. Just a very small amount, too much will make it hard to press the right thumbstick button.
You could also try some old fashioned grease, just a little bit on the inside, nothing noticeable from the outside.

Also make sure the controller is put back together right, I've taken apart many 360 controllers and sometimes joysticks stick when there's a wire in the wrong place and the shell won't close all the way. (The rumble motors particularly).
Hope this helped!
