Question about Guest 2610a 10 Amp Battery Charger

Open Question

My 10 Amp guest battery charger wont start. The red and green led dont turn on.Could the fuse be broken? Its a 230 volt input charger and there is power to the charger. I think it is a dual charger because there is 3 cables from the charger to batteries(1 black and 2 orange).If the fuse is broken on one of the cables, does the other one still work or does the charger turn off totally? // Fredrik

SOURCE: how to connect a 2 bank (4 batteries) to the 3 GUEST switches.

Sorry for the delay. I don't understand why they have the third "on/off" switch. Normally on a boat like yours, the set would be as follows :
Each pair of batteries would be jumped together to make a single large bank. We can then consider them "bank 1" and "bank 2" usually they will correspond to port and starboard.
Now you will take the positive lead from bank 1 and connect it to B1 on the port switch and then jumper it to B1 on the starboard switch.
You will do the same for bank 2 and the starboard switch.
The "common" on each switch will be your positive output to the motors corresponding them to port and starboard.
Now you can run your port motor with the port switch selected to battery 1 and the starboard motor with the starboard switch selected to battery 2.
Your emergency parallel is already built in. If battery bank 1 dies, you can start both engines with battery bank 2 and vice versa. Putting the switche(s) to the "all" position will allow you to start/run the engine(s) form both banks at once.
You can use the third switch to supply the "house" system. Take its power feed from the "common" terminal on either of the battery switches. In this way you can isolate which battery bank you use to draw power from for all of your accessories so there is no fear of you running a battery bank dead and being stranded. For example if your house feed is connected to the port battery switch and you have the port battery switch selected to bank 1 (port bank), should you run the battery dead listening to the radio you can simply start the starboard engine and then select "all" on the port switch. Now the starboard engine will be charging the port battery bank, bringing the house system back to life and allowing you to start the port engine.
In order for the system to work it is important that all of the battery and engine grounds be connected together in a central point (a common buss bar).
Dont forget that you cannot switch battery switches while the engines are running.
Good Luck!

SOURCE: The unit is Freedom 20

There are a couple of possibilities. 1. Fuse, 2. Bad Battery and 3. Damaged Mosfet. Honestly I am not familiar with this model, but as far as I know, inverters having output problem means battery or the mosfets (Transistors).
Check the Fuse and make sure it's still working, I would suggest you to replace it. For more details about compatible fuse, please refer to the user manual (click HERE).
If you have extra battery, you can try with it to verify whether the problem is with the battery or not. But if you don't have a spare battery I wouldn't suggest you to get a new one since these kind of batteries are quite expensive. Well, did you smell burnt plastic or rubber or etc? Did you see smoke came out from the machine? Did you hear any cracking or bursting/exploding sound? Actually, it's important to know how this started, whether without any sign of damage or it just stopped while it was using or one of the things I've asked. If you are not familiar with mosfets and transistors, I won't recommend you to try yourself, instead take it to the service center or take it to a local electronic repair shop and get it fixed.
I don't mean it's should be only with the Mosfet and the battery, but there are other components that could cause the problem, I am only telling you the most likeliest possibilities.
Hope this helps.
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Battery state light stays on & discharges battery

something not right here with the question/request---""unplugging the 230 volt charger"????--I don't know of a 230 volt charger---unless this is in Europe---a 120 volt charger---in USA-- but I'll try this---a LED light does not use enough electricity to discharge a battery over night--- do you have another function on this unit such as a compressor or lights--something that maybe on???---another thought is that the battery has failed causing this malfunction----has this been wet/underwater---a malfunction with a diode in the electronics may cause the charger to try and charge the battery via ac and cook the battery as well as the circuit board---this is a real issue here---I'm not getting enough info to give an intelligent answer---i need to know if anything has happen what has happened before and up to this point when this issue started---I don't know what happens if when using these units if you connect to (jump start) battery with reverse polarity--if it bows a fuse or cooks the unit---sorry I can't be more helpful

Makita battery charger wont charge

If both lights on the charger are flashing it is indicating you have a bad battery and the charger will not charge the battery. The charger has circuitry that tests the battery and if it 'thinks' the battery is defective it will not attempt to charge it. The only way to verify whether it's the battery or charger is to try charging your battery on another charger or try charging another battery on your charger. Most of the time it's a bad battery.

Can i charge peg perego battery 12 volt with the regular car charger

Actually I did it successfully over the weekend with a Sears 6/2 amp car charger. First I removed the battery caps and topped the cells off with water. Then I set the charger on 6 amp for approx. 4 hours. I monitored it and as water began to overflow I suctioned it off. The result - a very happy grandson riding his Gator

My charger blinks red and green but I've literally only used my chainsaw 4 times. It's less than a year old. It won't charge the battery. What could be the issue? Or can I take it back to home Depot and use the warranty? Any help will be welcome.

Wiring diagrams for clarion dxz535 car stereo

Here's how it goes:
Speaker wires:
grey=right front pos.
grey/black=right front neg.
white=left front pos.
white/black=left front neg.
violet=right rear pos.
violet/black=right rear neg.
green=left rear pos.
green/black=left rear neg.
red=12 volt switched power source
yellow=12 volt constant power source (direct to battery)
black=chassis ground
orange/white=illumination (switched source,not to head light switch)
blue/white=amp turn on lead (to remote turn on lead of amp)
blue=auto antenna (switched power source)
brown=phone mute lead (to cell phone mute lead)
RCA connector leads:
grey lead:
red=right front
white=left front
black lead:
red=right rear/right rear subwoofer
white=left rear/left rear subwoofer
(connect to external amp)
red lead:
red=right aux input
white=left aux input
(connect to external unit)
green lead:
red=right dual zone output
white=left dual zone output
(connect to wireless head phones)
That should be all there is. on the yellow that goes direct to the battery you need to use an inline fuse holder with 30 amp fuse.

Green and red light comes on when i put battery in charger what does that mean?

Here is the manual:

Red = quick charge
yellow = evaluating
green = charged

If battery pack is within normal temperature range, the red LED on charger will come on.

Red LED should remain on for approximately 1 hour then the green LED will come on. Green LED on indicates battery pack is fully charged and charger is in maintenance charge mode.

Green & Yellow light on 14.4V charger

It sounds like your battery is bad.

If both yellow and green LEDs come on, this indicates
a deeply discharged or defective battery pack.
Allow the battery pack to remain in the charger for 15
to 30 minutes. When the battery pack reaches normal
voltage range, the red LED should come on. If the
red LED does not come on after 30 minutes, this may
indicate a defective battery pack and should be
n After normal usage, a minimum of 1 hour of charging time
is required to fully recharge battery pack.
