Question about Vector VEC414S MICROSLIM POWER INVERTER

1 Answer

The power light turns red instead of green and no charging occurs

Normally, when I use my vector imobile vec414s power inverter in my vehicle cigarette lighter, the power light is green and it charges whatever I have plugged into it. Now instead of green, the power light is red and it does not charge my unit. I do not have the original manual in order to look up this problem.

This is a classic symptom of the Output transistors "Blowing" this is very common with inverters. Especially smaller ones. You could no doubt repair this item, however I am pretty sure that it would end up an uneconomic repair, by the time you repaired it you may as well have bought a new one, The cost of the transistors will be around $75.00, just for those alone. In my opinion it would be best to put any money into another unit. Also this time get a larger output device, this will allow more "Headroom" and this will, ensure longevity, of the inverter.

Hello, I hear you. Was the reason to supply 240 volts? When you try the inverters separately, do you get 120Volts output? Let us look at the units working individually first and go from there.

Should the "charged" green light illuminate also


Yes. If it doesn't then the battery is too old to hold a charge.

Bought a new vector maxxsst 1200 watt inverter


Inverter run on batteries sir, and if these batteries are not charged, the run time {the number of hours it will work} reduces.
S0, you will need to connect the inverter to a power source.Theses will allow your batteries to be charged and enable it to run for a long period of time.
Make sure your batteries are still OK.i.e working properly

2 - 3 red lights indicate not fully charged. Green light = fully charged.

Not fully charged does not mean it will not function. For best results, your device should be fully charged. If you have an emergency and are not fully charged, it will not hurt to try to help with a partial charged device IMHO

2nd season with 400 watt vehicle 1024 inverter. The


Restating the question - 400 watt inverter is turned on and running with the vehicle turned off.
After starting vehicle the red light of the inverter is on with no power output from the inverter.
If you turn the inverter off then on inverter operates normally.

Solution - this is normal operation - my inverter does the same thing. When you start the vehicle
it draws a lot of current from the vehicle battery which causes a drop in battery voltage. Most inverters have a low voltage input safety and will fault the device.'

If the problem is turn on inverter then the red light starts flashing... I am thinking you
have the same problem as the one I replaced - it broke... I am sure some capicator
or other component in the circuit failed... My solution was to purchase a new one...

No power output from my vector 1000w inverter.


Buy a different brand of inverter. Yours has developed a short which the protection circuit is catching. It then tries a restart but fails all over again. Most likely o/p short which looks like an overload to the inverter.

My Vector Vec157 Flashlight won't Charge...


It is the battery, I have a similiar Vector light for a few years and tried re-charging the battery but only the little LED light would come on. I have another Vector light, same model and switched batteries from the worjking one to the non-working one and now it works fine.

I then proceeded to purchase a new battery for the non'working one and when I arrived home I installed it and turned on the main light, still won't turn on, I tried the LED's, they work. I figured maybe the new battery needs a good charge so I plugged the charger in and charged the light for 12 hours, still no main light.

I guess the new battery is defective, so now I will return it and exchange it for another one.
