Question about Thor TH2000 2000 Watt Power Inverter

1 Answer

Thor Invertor comes on then shuts off

I am using the inverter to power a boatlift. When I turn on the inverter I am using an extension cord-- only way I can operate. It turns on then shuts off after about 10 seconds. Any reason why? Is there a special extension cord needed?

I guess you have checked that the wattage of the power lift is lower than the rating of the inverter. It will need to be at least 25% less at a guess possibly more as the starting current will be a lot higher than the rated value of the motor.

What is the difference between inverter AC?


The biggest difference between inverter and non-inverter AC is the fact that the motor of the inverter compressor has a variable speed. The speed of the non-invertor compressor is fixed. This means that it operates either at full or minimum speed. A censor in the invertor adjusts the power according to the temperature in the room, lowering the electrical consumption and saving energy.

Due to the sophisticated operational method of the invertor, its compressor does not work at its full capacity all the time. When the speed is lower, the needed energy is lower too and you pay less money for electricity.
As the compressor motor of the inverter air conditioner does not turn on and off all the time, but keeps working at low power, the operation is more quite.
The technology of the inverters not only makes cooling and heating more efficient, but it also makes the AC's life longer.
Last but not least, the inverter AC is able to cool or heat your room faster than the non-inverter. This is due to the fact that in the beginning of the process, the inverter uses more power than the non-inverter and diminish the power when it gets close to the desired temperature.

I am using 2500 cobra inverter .when i go to plug in extention cord led comes up ( OPP ) and and i do know what that stsnds for ? no power


Short Circuit Protection - OPP



If the

AC output of the inverter is shortcircuited

for one second or more,

it will shut down to protect itself.

The meter will flash as shown to

indicate Short Circuit Protect and

an alarm will sound.

To restore normal operation,

disconnect the short circuit and

turn the unit


Off and On again
using the

Power Button.

The screen on my 42"


Hi.

If the screen is dark and there is still sound is usually because there is no power to the inverter board. Parts that cause this are inverter, power supply or main controller board. Power to the LCD panel should also be tested.

before declaring the TV faulty make sure that the problem is not cable settings or source selection.

Check if there is on screen display (the menu). If OSD is displayed, then the problem is either cable/source settings or a defective input circuit. Try also disconnecting power cord for ten minutes and then up to one hour. Power drain may fix temporary faults.

If all that does not work, then the problem is either inverter or power board. In some case the main controller board may also be responsible.

The inverter is a power board that converts DC voltage from PSU into AC high voltage, powering the whole backlight system. When there is a problem with the inverter the whole screen will be completely dark, while the sound keeps going on.
A problem with the inverter will mean that either inverter is bad, power supply is bad and does not power the inverter, or main board is bad and does not turn inverter on. Those are the three parts that must be tested when the inverter does not fire up ( sound and dark screen). Here broad description of how to test the three parts: Before proceeding...

From a user level point of view, all you should do is disconnecting power cord for fifteen minutes, and testing the TV with different connected devices and different cables (e.g. with a DVD, a receiver box, using a SCART and using HDMI).
Disconnecting power will allow a power reset that sometimes can fix temporary problems (usually not sound but no picture).
Testing different cables and devices excludes the chance of the problem being given by a bad cable connection.

If that does not work, call the manufacturer at the number listed in the owners manual. Verify warranty status (warranty may have expired 09/10). Make present to the operator that the TV is just out of warranty, and that the fault occurred without you making any wrong use of the TV. Some manufacturer in some case apply special condition.

I'm dumb. Can I hook an inverater to my generator and produce more enegry than my generator produces???


Please understand that the generator produces power from fuel with an engine wheras the invertor is one which genrerates power from a stored battery using the principle of frequency switching a DC source to induct and produce AC.
Now you can have an uninterupted power supply setting with the invertor backed up by the generator so that when the battery voltage goes down you can start and charge the invertor and also supply the extra energy .
the ratings of both must also be considered.

Trying to run a digital projector from a car battery


I looked at the power requirements of this projector, 280W, but that assumes a nice sine wave. Your inverted is supposed to put out 400W, but it's a modified sine wave. Under ideal conditions (including a good battery) this might be just enough. Connecting directly to the battery will help a little, because of the limited ability to get current to and through the cigarette lighter. Using a 100 foot extension cord will diminish the voltage a bit (less so if it's a heavy gage wire). I would try connecting the inverter directly to the battery, run the engine and skip the extension cord. If that works, turn off the engine. If that works, try the extension cord. If it won't work with the engine running, connected directly and no cord - there are two possibilities: (1) the projector just won't run on a modified sine wave, (2) you need a bigger inverter. --- regarding (1) I have seen lots of people having trouble with various devices. You might want to ask Epson support. --- Good luck!

Can this equipment be used bidirectionslly? i.e.


you can use an invertor to power a battery charger to charge the boat battery but you could not use the invertor to charge the battery it was running from as the invertor will use power faster then the battery could be charged

I have a Freedom invertor/charger 458 in my motorhome and i can't control the invertor with my remote board. I can push any button and nothing happens/no lights come on. it still charges and inverts. is...


Buy a long phone cord or however long youneed. Run it temporarily to the remote board and the invertor. Make sure powrr is off during this stage.If this doesn't work the solution is probaly going tobe much tougher. See manual.

Fan does not work.


Two things...one the fan only workk when the unit get hot or you created short the inversters are very sinsative and if you make mistake you are dead...see try it for ferw min and see...but first try to reset the unit and that by disconnecting the negative and positive from the back and turn the unit on to get all charges in the unit out then reconnect the cables do not forget to ground the unit to avoid sparks.
