Sounds like you might have bad batteries. It is OK for a battery charger to get warm as it charges batteries, but getting hot indicates the charger is working too hard charging poor/old batteries. Do a load test on the batteries with a load tester or use a DVM at the charging port on the joystick. I can provide more specific information on how to do this. There are other more specific, easier checks looking for disconnected or loose battery connections, disconnected/broken cables, etc. The on board chargers for this model were very problematic with issues including drive inhibit and outright failures with the early black Soneil versions. The new CTE chargers are much more reliable. Hope this helps.

Charger seems to have both red and green lites flashing at the same time no sequence and both batteries connected read 4.0 VDC, are these chargers repariable or throw aways


Your manual is here. The section on charging states, that green blinking means your battery is fully charged but blinking red means that your charger is faulty. I would say repairable.

1. Plug the female connector of the AC power cord (supplied) to the AC receptacle on the charger and plug in the male connector on the AC power cord into the wall outlet.

2. The On/Off LED indicator is blinking RED, this is abnormal. Unplug AC power cord from the on-board battery charger and wall outlet. Charger may need to be replaced. Contact an Invacare dealer or qualified technician.

3. When the On/Off LED indicator light is Off, charger is Off.

4. When the Charge LED indicator light is YELLOW, the batteries are charging.

5. When the Charge LED indicator light is solid GREEN, the batteries are fully charged (as their condition will allow).

6. When charging is complete, unplug the male connector of the AC power cord from the wall outlet and then unplug the female connector of the AC power cord from the AC receptacle on the charger.

Janice check your charger it could not be charging the batteries. Now always charge your batteries overnight while you sleep When you get up lights on the charger should be red and green if they are red and yellow then the charger hasn't fully charged the batteries and overnight should be more than enough time to charge fully. This could indicate a bad battery remember new doesn't always mean good. Like they say always charge before use and this goes for new batteries too you need to charge new batteries nightly for 10-15 days before they start operating at 100%. If when you plug in the charger before bed and the lights are red and green then there is a problem with the charger or the batteries or the charger circuit Hope this helps you

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

I've been charhing the battery for 48 hours and no charge! any answers?


Kw How old are the batteries and have they been sitting up for a long time? If this is the case the charger cannot pick up really low batteries and charging them for 48 hours won't help. Unfortunately you have to get 2 new batteries. Your chair requires 2 U1 batteries. Now if the batteries are fairly new and when you plug the charger into the joystick you should be getting a red light and a yellow light on the charger. When fully charged the yellow light turns green. If you have both lights and it never turns green bad batteries if no lights or just the power light bad charger, If you have a digital voltmeter you can set it on 200 volts dc and place the leads in the two outter charger plug holes on the joystick. It should read the battery voltage fully charged 25-27 volts HOPE THIS HELPS

I have a jazzy power chair and when you turn it on all the lights come on for about 3 seconds then they go off and all you have is the red lights. we live in alaska so nobody around here to take it to


John Do the red lights blink or steady? this indication on the joystick usually means low batteries. Now this could be caused by bad batteries or a bad charger. On the jazzy if you have an on-board charger the light on the charger will come on green when the batteries are fully charged. If you can look under the rear of the chair you will see the charger and can tell if the light is green with the charger still plugged in after charging overnite. If the light is not lit then you probably have a bad charger. If you have a digital volt meter put it on dc volts 200 volt scale and plug the leads into the two outter charger port holes located under the front of the joystick. Your battery level should read 24-26 volts after charging all nite and with the charger plugged in up to 30 volts if there is no change in the voltage from charger plugged in and not plugged in then the charger is bad. You can then look to purchase an off-board charger that plugs into the joystick charger port to charge your batteries. If your battery readings are lower than 21 volts even after trying the new charger then you will have to replace the batteries. You might try to find someone in the local area that has an off-board charger you could borrow to see if you can get the batteries to charge. This will help you find out if the batteries need replacing. Hope this helps

How do I know when the chair has charged? I see one red, two green, two yellow lights on.


If you have an off-board charger that plugs into the joystick there are two lights on the charger one red(power on) and the other yellow (turns green when fully charged). Plug it into the chair and if the light is green then you have fully charged the batteries. Now if you have the on-board charger the charger meter on the rear of the chair will resd zero when fully charged. Hope this helps ya

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
