Sonny you say your batteries are good but the error you describe indicates low batteries. If you have a digital voltmeter or can borrow one. set it to 200 volts dc and plug the leads into the two outter holes of the charger plug located under the front of the joystick. Fully charged you should be reading 25-27 volts, if you are reding less than 22 volts then the batteries need charging. Now with the meter still plugged in to the joystick plug in your on-board charger. when it is on and charging you should be reading anywhere from 25-30 volts. If you are not then the charger is not putting our the correct voltage and your batteries aren't getting charged correctly. After a full charge (the yellow light on the charger turns green) you should get 25-27 volts on the meter. If all of the voltages check out then you have another problem that I need more information to venture a solution Hope this helps you

Joe See my tips on charging batteries No you don't have to leave the chair on when charging. Charge overnite after using it during the day. Always have the charger off when plugging it into the chair and unplugging from the chair. The charger you have doesn't have an on/off switch so get a power strip with the on/off switch, plug that into the wall and plug your charger into the strip use the switch on the strip to turn the charger on and off this will save you having to plug and unplug the charger rom the wall. Always store or put the chair up fully charged. If you don't use the cair daily charge at least once a week. It takes 9-10 chargings to get the batteries operating at 100% so use the chair and charge overnight while you sleep Never leave the charger on the chair more than 12 hours Hope this helps you

My Hoveround MPV5 batteries will not charge, do you think it is a battery problem or a charger problem?


If you plug the charger into the wall, turn on the power switch and the light comes on, the charger should be working properly. Here is a way to test it-
Attach the charger that came with the power chair to the power chair controller firmly and turn the power chair on, while the charger is running. What should happen:the lights on the controller will scroll back and forth. If this does NOT happen and you can confirm the charger is turned on, the charger handle is fully seated inside the controller receptacle and the wall outlet has power, then the charger may have a problem and needs to be replaced.

If the charger is OK, then there may be a problem with the batteries. Here are some sypmtoms:
1-You connect the charger but the light on the charger never goes red, it just stays green.
2-You connect the charger but the light goes from red to green VERY fast.
3-The charger light goes from red to green but when you disconnect the charger and press the power button on the controller, you only have one flashing red light, or the batteries drain within just a few minutes of use.
4-The power chair has been stored or sitting idle for several months.
5- The power chair has been connected to the charger 24-7 for several months.
Any of the above examples indicates that the batteries are oxidized or damaged and will most likely need to be replaced. The MPV5 takes two, U1 12 volt 33 amp batteries which can be purchased at any battery warehouse store like Interstate Batteries or Batteries Plus.
Good luck!

You can visit this website to find answers on what the flashing trouble indicator lights mean: http://www.pgdt.com/scenter/diagnostics/diagvsi.html
Locate the page that has the controller used on your power chair/scooter and count how many lights are flashing to diagnose the trouble. If your insurance purchased the power chair for you, they may also cover the repairs; contact them for information.
Good luck!

I just purchased a used Jet 3 ultra power wheelchair...after charging it up I turn it on and the red light is flashing and it makes like a clicking sound when i try to make it go forward..cand you please...


bobby

The batteries are not charged. The red light indicates low batteries and the clicking sound you hear is the electric brakes being energized. Now the problem could be bad batteries or a bad charger. If you have access to an off-board charger (maybe a friend or acquaintance might have one) plug it into the charger port located under the front of the joystick. Don't plug in the on-board charger at the same time. Charge the chair overnight with the off-board charger and you should see a red light(power) and a green light(if the chairgot fully charged) if the light is still yellow then the batteries are bad and need to be replaced. Your chair uses 2 U1 batteries and if there is a battery store near you get them there. Interstate makes a good battery if you have a dealer near you. Hope this helps Good Luck

My question is related to an Invacare-Nutron R51.Production date 1-7-03,joystick[MKIV R11] flashes red 1 time, than green 5 times repeatedly? Can you please tell me what this means.?


Ranch well the red flash indicates a low battery and the 5 flashes indicate a bad left brake. Now try charging the batteries until you get a green light on your charger then turn on the chair it shouldn't flash the red if the batteries are accepting the charge. If your batteries are 2-3 years old it could be time to change them. If Medicare paid for your chair then they will pay most of the repair costs. You can contact your provider for help or a service company like Roadrunner Mobility @ 1-800-467-2668 or Repair Xpress @ 1-877-581-3733. If Medicare did buy the chair then you are eligible for a new chair every 5 years and yours is almost 8 years old. Contact a local provider that you trust to check into getting you a new chair. Hope this helps you

The Pronto will not keep a charge so I replaced the batteries. Now the red and green light flash while charging and there is no power to the chair


Mckinzie the lights will flash when charging because of the inhibit mode. After you unplug the charger and turn the chair on do you get any lights at all on the battery indicators? If not lift up the seat and check your battery cable connections the neg cable from the rear battery should be connectd to the positve side of the front battery and the rear neg should plug into the small connector of the other cable. Make sure then that the large double plug is connected to the double plug going to the controller. while the seat is up then turn the chair on to see if all the lights come on. If not check that all your connections at the battery posts are tight. Also check under the two red positve battery post covers the two fuse links to make sure they are not blown. If all of this checks out the chair should come on and operate correctly Hope this helps

The chair will not move if the charger is plugged in. The flashes are normal with the charger plugged into the chair. The lights on the charger mean that the batteries have been fully charged. Red and yellow lights mean charging. After you unplug the charger from the chair (if off-baord charger, turn charger off or unplug from the wall) then unplug from joystick. after plug is removed from joystick press the on button and all the battery lights should be lit and when you move the joystick forward you will hear the electric bake release and the chair should move forward etc Hope this helps

One red light three green flash when turned on


Your chair has a motor problem. The code does not tell which side it is. Make sure both motors have the brakes in the drive position before turning on the chair. Also check that both motors are plugged into the main control module in the base of the chair.

Battery doesn't charge


When you connect the charger, if the light goes to red to green within a few minutes and the battery power does not last more than 1-2 hours or less, it may indicate that that the batteries will not take a charge anymore and need to be replaced. This can happen if the power chair has not been charged in a while or has been stored. Having the chair on or off while charging will not affect the charging process, but you ususally want it to be OFF.
Good luck!

The battery is charged but the lights just flash and chair doesn't move


Make sure the charger is unplugged from the chair and that the chair is in gear. There's two levers that place the chair in freewheel, or neutral so you can roll it around. Place these in neutral, then back in gear firmly. If still flashing, turn chair off, wait three seconds and turn back on, then push on the horn button three times. This will take it out of sleep mode. Still not going, you will need to check all clip-on connections to make sure they are tight.

I am assuming that all of the lights are flashing constantly. If it flashes a "fault code", you will get a series of flashes from 1 to 10, then a pause, then a set of flashes. Count the number of flashes and it will tell you what the fault is for that number of flashes in the owners manual. If it is just two red lights flashing constantly, you have a set of dead batteries.

Good luck.
