Nope unless you have another joystick. Try unplugging the joystick cable at the joystick and plugging it back in turn on and see if it makes a difference. If you are still getting the error you will need to have the joystick replaced sorry

I get error code 9, what do I do to fix this


Error Code 9 is a "Communications Error". The controller, or "Little black box" down inside the chair is not talking to the joystick, etc. First, check all the connections. Unplug, examine and clean all of the connections going into the controller, and the joystick connection too. Inspect all of the cables for damage to the wiring. If all looks good, then you likely have a bad controller....ouch. These are very expensive to replace new. You might be able to find a used one on Ebay, etc., or you could be better off looking on sites like Craigslist for a complete powerchair replacement. I have found near-new chairs for under a thousand dollars. Search for Pride Jazzy chairs too...a lot more of those for sale than Invacare chairs. Good luck.

Wheelchair lights are blinking and I cannot move the chair. It did it the other night, and my husband held something down for a little while and it fixed it. He cannot find the resoution n the manual now....


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. Try to reset your system by turning off the power chair, moving the manual brakes from drive to push and then back to drive and turn the power chair back on to see if that clears the problem. If your insurance purchased the power chair for you, they may also cover the repairs; contact them for information.
Good luck!

1 red and 3 amber lights flashing after stopping and goes around in circle on a jazzy 1121 powerchair


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.
The powerchair going in circles may indicate a motor is bad and needs to be replaced.
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.
Good luck!

Won't move pronto m51


Three lights flashing on your chair indicate a left motor fault. Make sure that all of the connections inside the shroud are tight by physically testing them. If all of the connections are good, and the fuses are good, then it's time for a trip to an authorized repair facility. Here is a link to the M51 owners manual if you haven't one. Page 24 has the fault code guide.
http://www.invacare.com/doc_files/1125085.pdf

The controller monitors all of the functions on the chair, brakes, motors, joystick, charger etc. The three flash fault indicates an "open" circuit. Open, like a switch or blown fuse is open, or a wire is cut or burned in half, or a connector is unconnected, or partially connected. The latter is what you are hoping for. Wires burned in half is the usual cause for a motor fault, and with powerchairs, is usually the result of the chair getting stuck in or against something it can't get out of and the operator over-amping the motors. Motors do, just go bad sometimes, for no reason. Very rarerly, however.

You can also check the brushes on the motor too. There's two quarter-sized black plastic screw-plugs on the ends of the motor opposite each other. Unscrew them and examine the brushes. The springy coils should be springy. Overheating can cause them to be brittle, or even burned in two. Check the lench of the brush, the dark rectangular cube at the end of the springs. It should be curved and polished at the end, and a little over a half-inch long. If it is near a 1/4 inch, it needs replaced, or if there is any evidence of overheating, replace. Good luck.
