Spj-80, model 1122190. Why doesn't it move?


you may have a current rollback problem you will need to charge the Chair for 14hrs. with the Joystick on! This will reset the circuit. Charge with the joystick on! It is okay it won't hurt a thing, in fact from now on always charge with the joystick on.

I have a Invacare Pronto M51, the chair won't move. When I turn on the joystick, the wrench light flashes 9 times, stops, then flashes 9 times again. Can you tell me what that indicates?


A flash code of 9 indicates a communication fault. What this means is that there is a lack of communication between the joystick and the other electronic component, the controller module. In my experience, the usual culprit is that the charger plug makes bad contact inside the joystick housing causing it to heat up and burn. This can cause components inside the joystick to burn out. The other more common problem is that there is a break in the 4 wire harness going from the joystick down to the controller in the base. Sometimes it is just a matter of unplugging the connector, cleaning it, and pushing it back in. In other cases, the wire has been cut or broken along its length. Look for cuts along the black covering of the 4 wire harness (connecting cable)and twist and tape or splice and solder to repair the wires. These connecting harnesses are so inexpensive it is usually easier to replace, however a quick splice can get you going temporarily. If you smelled burning that would be an indication that the joystick assembly has burned out and I would replace that along with a new harness (connecting cable with a plug on each end) to the base electronic module.
The connecting cables have always been a weak link in this design and have had a history of failures over the years. For this reason I replace both the joystick assembly and connecting cable when servicing. Hope this helps.

Shoprider Powerchair has full charge and turns on. Once I touch the joystick it shuts off. No flash code is present. Verified all connections. Replaced joystick, problem still occurs.


Hi , when you say shut off, you mean like it been turned off ? if so check the connector going into the controller , the issue could be with the controller connect, not the joystick end if it's been replaced...

Batteries quit charging. installed new batteries. new batteries will not charge


check at the rear of the chair when you plug in the on-board charger the meter shoud go up to indicate charging if the meter doesn't move recheck the battery installation to make sure that the wiring is correct I had one the other day that had crossed the connectors and was getting neg voltage instead of pos and the charger or the chair won't work. If the wiring is correct and you aren't getting a charge indication on the meter I would suspect the charger If you can borrow an offboard charger you can charge your chair through the joystick charger port under the front of the joystick until you can get a new charger. I would buy an offboard if you have to pay for it yourself it will be cheaper. Hope this helps

How do I know if my jet 3 ultra is charging? I just bought a used one today and do not have a manual


The chair should have a meter on the rear panel where the 9 pin connector for the joystick plugs into the chair when you plug in the charger cord the meter should move up and the lights on the joystick should flash indicating the charger is plugged in. When the chair is fully charged the meter should read zero or bounce up and down. Hope this helps

Have helicopter charged new batteries in control. helicopter not responding. do you plug the cord to charger into empty slot in helicopter. manual not specific


Hello Susan,

What you need to do is to gently pull the cockpit housing off the post at the bottom rear and remove it from the machine. You can now access those connector plugs much easier along with noting where the trim screw is located.

Please note that the battery pack has a female connector while both your charger and the lead to the electric motor have male ends. Those male ends have two small pins within the connector and you need to get them oriented correctly with the round holes within the female connector.

Once you have established this, a dab of finger nail polish on the top side of each connector will make it easier to orient the plugs for charging the battery, or connecting the battery to the motor leads in the future.

Make sure to charge the battery for at least three hours, Do Not Overcharge.

Jassy 1103, will not start charging the battery.\r...


the 1103 uses an onboard charger. Charger's life span is about 3 years; some fail in 6 months, some in 6 years keep in mind. You can charge the 1103 using an offboard charger which are available for about $50.00 on Ebay. Search for electric wheelchair charger. You want one that has a 4 to 6 amp rating.

The offboard charger has a 3-prong connector on one end and the other plugs into a grounded wall outlet. Plug the charger into an outlet and the three prong connector into the female three prong connector located at the bottom front of the joystick. Give it a good overnight charge and it should be back up to snuff in the morning.

Jazzy Select 6 Indoor Power Wheelchair: how to charge...


The Jazzy Select 6 requires an off-board charger. Plug the charger into a grounded outlet; preferably one that doesn't have other large loads on the circuit like refrigerator, freezer, microwave, etc. The male 3-prong XLR connector coming off the other end of the charger plugs into a female XLR connector which is on the joystick control's bottom-rear. Charge it overnight after each days use, and at least once each month overnight. You should get 2-4 hours of use from the chair at top speed with a 200 pound driver, depending on terrain and climate. If it isn't holding a charge, you will probably need two new U-1 type gel sealed batteries that run about $120.00 or so each. Make sure you test the old batteries first at a knowledgeable battery shop. These are deep cycle batteries and require a special testing. If the batteries are good, then your charger isn't charging. Search EBay or other online sites for a wheelchair charger in the 4-6 amp range. They can be found for about $45.00 or so. Pride will charge you a lot more.

Jazzy 1113 will not charge, batteries are new, light blinks indicates charging when plugged in but fails to increase usage lights.


Most likely your charge isn't charging properly. You need a multimeter to test the voltage at the joystick. In the 3-pin femal connector measure the voltage across the two horizontal terminals. It should read about 24 volts. Now plug it into the charger and see if the voltage increases, if not, charger needs to be replaced. You can get one that plugs into the joystick on ebay a lot cheaper than going to the mfgr. about $50.00 or so. Even if the lights are blinking, it may not be putting out sufficient voltage to bring the batteries up.
