Re: chair no longer charges, no flashing or blinking,...
The number of lights that are blinking indicate what the problem is.
Visit this site to locate the type on controller on your power chair and
you will be able to see that the blinking lights mean: http://www.pgdt.com/scenter/diagnostics/diagvsi.html
Try to reset your manual brake release as this is a common problem.
If you continue to have a problem, contact your manufacturer or dealer
for service. If your insurance purchased they power chair for you, they
may also cover the cost of repairs.

Your version has a Dynamic Controls model controller and joystick. Unplug the charger and engage the motor/brake lever so the chair is no longer in free-wheel mode (con't push by hand) Turn the chair off, wait 5 seconds, turn the chair back. If chair still does not run and your wrench is flashing you have a problem. Count the wrench flashes - the flash count indicates the error detected. 3, 4, 5, and 6 flashes indicate and error with the motors. 3=Left motor fault 4=Right motor fault 5=Left brake fault (may not be engaged) 6=Right brake fault (may not be engaged) Any other fault code usually means the electronics or wiring is bad and not worth fixing.
Cathey when you plug in the charger look at the rear of the chair at the meter if the chair is charging then the meter will indicate some amperage reading when it is fully charged the meter will read zero. Also turn on the chair and if the lights are scrolling or flashing it shows that the charger is plugged in. Now if after the meter reads zero (if it ever does) the lights on the joystick should all be lit indicating a full charge. If you aren't getting all the lights and the meter indicated the charger was working then you need to replace the batteries Hope this helps
According to my 1170 manual the flashing lights are error codes. 1 red = low batt., 2 red = left motor disconnected, 3 red = Left motor wiring fault, 4 yellow = Right motor disconnected, 5 yellow = right motor wiring fault, 6 yellow = Inhibit active, 7 yellow =possible joystick fault, 8 green = possible controller fault, 9 green = Solenoid brake fault, 10 green = high batt. voltage
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
