Does item have a fuse? Burned out

I plugged a coffee percolater in this power inverter and it was too much power for it. It no longer turns on. Does it have a fuse or breaker or is it toast?

I have the same one ...and i'm not seeing a fuse, there may be one internally
does the inverter have strong "burnt wire" smell if so it is probably fried.

Thermaltake TrR2-430W power supply won't power on


Try to unplug it from the motherboard and put a wire between black and green wire and see if the fan turn on
if it won't turn on unplug all and open your PSU to see if the fuse isn't burned (ONLY IF THERE AREN'T WARRANTY)

Can i plug in coffee maker in power pack 150


If it has a inverter yes but a coffee pot "pulls" a lot of amps and watts what is the Power pack rated for as in watts/Amps. I can tell you from experence it will drain the battery quick if left on after brewing.

My Motor Trend Inverter 400 watt give's me a fault light upon start up. The fuse is good


Sadly replacement is the best option. It is just not cost effective to get the inverter repaired.

The cost starts out about 150.00.

Best option is to take it back to where you purchased it and hope you can get a new one.

Hope this tip helps.

Am a seven each power inverters owner.

Recommendations: Purchase a Pure sine inverter 1500 watt. We have had one of these running 24 seven for almost a year now.

I need an owners manual


Your best bet is to search the Philips website.

I note that the American website contains more products listed than does the Australian site.

I have located a 300W Power Inverter however, it is a US2-GGE819.

If it is an older stocked item, then you would need to use the Contact section of the website to contact Philips to obtain a copy of the manual.

TO SEARCH the Philips SITE do the following:

1. Copy and Paste the following link to navigate directly to the US site:

http://www.support.philips.com/support/find_product.jsp?userLanguage=en&userCountry=us

2. Type the product description ie., power invert. Press <enter>
3. Read through the list of products to locate yours.

I hope this helps. Regards,

I have an inverter, then a UPS, as the inverter does not always keep the PC on. The inverter does not power the UPS so it cuts out after a few mins, I then have to take the UPS out of the system until the...


Hello,

As I understand your statement, Your inverter (Powerline 200watt) has the UPS plugged into it, but it is not able to keep the UPS powered on. You didn't mention the size of the load (PC), nor the wattage rating of the UPS, or the batter bank size that supplies the inverter.

It sounds like you are trying to create an electrical system with double redundancy. If this is the case, you are going about it wrong. Most inexpensive inverters will have a Modified Sine Wave output, that the UPS will detect as a poor AC signal, and revert to backup mode, rather than pass the inverter power to the load.

200 watts isn't going to be very much for anything. 200watts / 120 volts (assuming 120vac system) is only 1.6amps or so. The charger on the UPS will likely use this much just to keep the internal battery topped off. As the PC is turned on, and the battery charger is doing its thing, there now exists an overload at the inverter. The inverter will respond by trying to increase its output by lengthening the pulses in the MSW waveform. The UPS then sees this, interprets it as bad power, and kicks into backup mode.

Since the powerline inverter is obviously a 12volt unit (cig. lighter plug), then check the battery configuration of the UPS itself. If it is 12volts as well, then you may be able to connect the UPS directly to the batteries that were powering the inverter. Note that some modification to the UPS will be needed if there external battery connections are not already present. Even then, there is no guarantee that the charger in the UPS will be able to charge the internal plus an external battery bank.

Since the battery that powers the inverter is likely larger than that of the UPS, why not run the PC directly off the inverter itself and forgo the use of the UPS altogether?

Protection light blinks and beeping


it has been through an overload (hence the protection light) and needs its breaker to be reset (look for a poped out button and push it back in) or it needs a new fuse (replace ONLY WITH THE EXACT SAME MODEL OF FUSE or it will either blow too early or too late (or not at all) when there is a surge.
