Most times the problem with these is that the batteries, though they show fully charged, are in poor condition.
Test: Count the cells in this unit and multiply by 1.2 test for that voltage, 4.8 is common, at the batterypack and turn the light on, if the voltage falls below 1 volt per cell, the battery protection circuit will engage and turn the light off. This is a battery problem.
If the voltage stays relatively steady, the bulb is the second item to be a common failure. Shine a flashlight across the base of the bulb where the 2 ends enter the white base. It the tubes are pretty blackened, your bulb is likely bad.
I don't have the specs for that switch, but it's a pretty simple device, it connects power from the batterypack to the inverter board or to the nightlight. It's simple to test with either an ohm meter (power disconnected) Or a volt meter, (Power connected)

40 amp spade fuse

Hello, the answer is no. This inverter will work with a pump that below or about 400 watts power for operation. I notice it says that the inverter 400w/800w. The 800 watts is the surge required to get an electric motor to run. On a single phase motor (120 AC) and it take 4 amperes to operator this motor. But to start the it will 12 amperes to start it. This is one reason why on a lot of electrical motors there will be a big tube or can, this is the starting capacitor, it stores energy in form of current (amperes) to drop across the windings of the motor when it starts. If some electric motors didn't have this capacitor. The most likely scenario would be tripping a breaker because it drawing to much current.

Now, for you problem. Example of Power and the unit of the formula is V (volt), R (resistance) I (current) P (power) Ohm's states that :


Now Power would be stated: P = V times(x) I. Therefore in your case, if the pump at normal operation is drawing 4 amps of current for operation pumping water. The power factor would be 120 V AC (house voltage) times (X) I (current) which 4 amps. So here is what you have: P = 120 X 4 equal= 480 watts.

Therefore, your inverter will not work because it operating at 80 watts more than the power inverter can deliver which is 400 Watts.

If you need to purchase a new power inverter, remember always take into account the Amperes required for operation. Just by the simple Ohm's Formula. Best of Luck. GB....stewbison

you may need more ventilation space around it,or it just might run all the time because it is under load,check the spec book

Mkv files to play correctly require quite powerful computer. Try mpg, MPEG codes but even those when used for high definition video my require some processing power.

Flash memory probably corrupted, you may need to format to get it useable, you will lose data but you can try a data recovery app which should retrieve most of the data even after formatting.
