Charger not working


When the red light is on it is to indicate that the charger is getting power from the wall outlet. If there is a second light that normally comes on Green when charging pay close attention to it when you first plug the charger in. See if it blinks even once then turns off. If it does that means the charger is not seeing any battery voltage at the plug that goes into the chair. If the green light does not blink at all then it usually means the charger is defective. Also most wheelchair battery chargers will not charge the batteries if the chair is to dead to even turn on.

Invacare what does it mean when light on charger continually blinks red when charging, It wont move


The red light is the power light and if the red light is blinking the charger is bad or the wiring is bad on the chair or the batteries are bad. Usually it's the charger.

when you plug in the charger do you get any amp reading on the meter located at the rear of the chair near where the charger cord plugs into the chair. When you plug in the cord the meter should deflect and read 6 amps or so. If you aren't getting any deflection of the amp meter then either the batteries are dead or the charger is bad. If you have a voltmeter you can set it to 200 volts dc and plug the leads into the charger port located under the front of the joystick Plug the leads into the 2 outter holes of the port with the charger plugged into the wall you should be reading 27-30 volts. Unplug the charger and you will be reading the battery voltage and fully charged they should read 25-27+ volts. If you aren't reading 25-27 volts without the charger plugged in you will need new batteries( anything less than 10 volts will not let the chair turn on) if you aren't getting 27-30 volts with the charger plugged in then the charger is bad and you can get or borrow an off-board charger and charge the chair thru the joystick port Hope this helps

I cant get my power chair jet 3 to charge batteries are good


Hi valentin 201
I have owned my own business for 3 years and have been working on scooters and powerchairs for 15 years. . In the future give as much info about the scooter as possible.

1. load test the batteries even if you think they are good, check anyway. Sometimes even new batteries won't hold a charge.

2. Your charger on the powerchair must have enough volts to open the charger inhibitor. That is, the charger won't even start up if your batteries are low. Both batteries need to have at least 20-22 vdc.

3. Some chargers have a 3amp fuse check that and repace if needed.

4. With a multi meter set on dc200 check your batteries. Red on one battery and black on the other. Check to see what you get for voltage. If no voltage reverse the lead wire to the other posts. Once you get a reading of 20+ volts watch the meter and plug in the charger, it should increase the volts on the meter. if not the charger is bad, replace. Charger should be 24-31 volts to be a good charger.)

One of these sugestions will fix the problem

Good Luck
Tim

the batteries are not charged and need to be replaced. The reason you have lights is because the charger is supplying power to the chair and the chair will not move when the charger is plugged in because of the inhibit function. Replace the batteries and make sure you charge before use Hope this helps

Could be the charger or the charger port. Do you have the offboard charger that plugs into the joystick or an onboard charger? I would suggest trying to find an offboard charger from a friend or your provider that you can borrow and plug it into the charger port under the front of the joystick to see if it will charge the batteries. the meter will not work if you use an offboard charger the lights on the charger will turn green when it is fully charged. when the charger is plugged into the joystick and you turn on the chair the lights should scroll indicating you have the charger inhibit function working and hopefully the chair is charging. If you can charge the chair with the offboard charger then look into buying one and using it instead of trying to get the onboard charger working Hope this helps

Lite Blinks continusleyon control ,chair will not move


I am assuming you have a Jet 7 with a VSI controller (manufactured by Penny and Giles) with a steady flash of all the speed and profile LEDs (lights). This is a no drive away feature of the VSI if the charger is plugged in. The older Penny and Giles controllers indicate the same flash code.

If you have an on- board charger check to see if it is plugged into the wall. If it is, unplug it and see if the chair runs. Sometimes, you have to remove the back cover and unplug the charger haress at the output of the charger inside the electronics housing (much more difficult). A failed on-board charger can inhibit the VSI controller (no drive away) even if it unplugged from the wall outlet. There is also a charger inhibit harness with a fuse that might have failed. A qualified technician can jumper this harness to bypass and test.

If you have an off-board charger unplug it from the wall or unplug it from the charging port in the front of the VSI. If the chair runs in either case you have a bad charger.

You may also have a bad VSI controller which can be rebuilt or replaced. Start with the basic charger unplug tests and then work your way to the VSI controller. Hope this helps.

sounds like a charger inhibit problem. Whenever you charge your chair the charger inhibit shuts down the chair so it can't be moved while charging. If you are getting this then that function is not working. Lets try this if you know of someone who has a chair or scooter with an off-board charger see if you can borrow it. Plug the off-board charger into the charger port located under the front of the joystick (don't have the on-board charger plugged in) and then turn the charger on. turn the chair's power on and you hopefully will see the lights blinking again indicating a charger plugged in (charger inhibit) the lights on the charger should be red and yellow (yellow turning green when fully charged) If you still get the problem with the off-board charger then your problem is in the controller or power module and this requires a new one. If Medicare paid for your chair you can call Repair Xpress @ 1-877-81-3733 or Roadrunner Mobility @ 1-800-467-2668 to have them fix it for you and bill Medicare for most of the repair costs. Hope this helps you
