My unit will not charge at all. I get no lights! I have checked all the outlets I have used. It did work for awhile then it just quit taking a charge.


Did you try this?
Fuse Replacement (DC Accessory Adapter)
1. Remove plug from accessory outlet. Remove the gold cap by turning counterclockwise
and lifting off.
2. Remove center pin and spring. Remove fuse.
3. Replace fuse with same type and size fuse (8 amp).
4. Replace center pin and spring inside plug.
5. Replace gold cap by turning clockwise.

Hi i have a 400w black and decker inverter as soon as i plug my lap top in to it the power light on the inverter flashs and it wont power my laptop


The output of this inverter (and most others) is a modified sine wave, which isn't quite the same as a true sine wave - like you get from a wall outlet. Unfortunately, most transformers (which is essentially what your laptop power-supply is) require a true sine-wave. Your inverter will work fine for many other 110V applications. You can buy an inverter with a true sine-wave output, but they are more expensive.

I just bought a power inverter for use with my pc.


There are two possibilites: the first is the over 400W power draw, the other is how you have the inverter connected. Do you have the inverter connected directly to the battery terminals (the clips) not the outlet plug (cigaretter lighter)? This is needed for any load over 80W and under 400W. (the inverter can handle a load demand over the 400W limit but only for short periods (800W).)

What is the load that your PC pulls (Is it a laptop or a desktop)? The laptop in my home has either a 65W or a 90W load (depending on the battery and the AC adapter we are using). Desktops take much more power (usually).

I hope this helps.

400W Black & Decker Power Inverter Doesn't Power My LCD TV


The problem of your inverter is from
your battery .your laptop and dvd
player requires little current to
operate.But you tv requires more power
to run, if your battery is low you it will
not last for 3 minutes. If your battery
has a low current rating, it will also be a
cause, for example, if it is below
100ampere hour. Lastly if your battery
is bad i.e. if it reads below the
stipulated dc voltage Require by your
inverter to operate.

Can i run my minn kota 30 trolling off my power box


Are you referring to an inverter by a "power box"? That term doesn't really describe the device. I'm going to assume it's an inverter you're talking about, a device that takes DC and turns it into AC. I'm not sure about that, but you should be able to plug a converter (turns AC into DC) of the right voltage, 12 to 14 volts DC into a generator on the boat and run it. I'm assuming the trolling motor runs off 12 volts DC and NOT gasoline. Be sure to check that before doing anything. Most do run off a large car or RV battery. Lead Acid Batteries for boats and cars produce 12.7 volts DC if they are in good shape and should have six cells (about 2volts per cell). 6 volt batteries are somewhat rare these days and have 3 two volt cells. Two of them in series will also power it.
Thanks for asking that question ... I like to fish also.

How do i tell when the inverter is charged?


Question does not seem to match this inverters capability.

INFO:
This Power Inverter converts vehicle’s 12-volt DC power into household 115-volt AC power. AC and USB outlets power and/or recharge personal electronics.

We have owned one of these Power inverters for over a year now and have run a great deal with it, from TV to drill press PC and any thing that was small and that could run from my car. Very nice product.

SET UP: Connect wires. ensure correct polarity, push button on top. Plug in 110 volt appliance.

Hope this tip was of some use.

Black & Decker P1400AB fuse change


If it is the fuse inside the cigarette lighter plug, just unscrew it and put a new fuse in.

If you mean replacing the two 25amp fuses inside the inverter housing, you can bypass the fuses by soldering the two sides together. Or, if you want to put new fuses in, heat the solder holding the fuses in until they pop out and insert new ones.

As for opening the housing, good luck!! I ended up using steel cutters to rip off the plastic. The best option would be to buy a new one and return the old one in the package.
