SOURCE: power supply/ no output voltage

Actually i haven't fixed the problem as yet but i did find some info that would help me to fix problem.
I went to google and entered keyword,,, Electronic parts,,there came up a page,,and i went to several manuf sites till i found a replacement transformer,,then i disassembled the power supply and am now waiting for a replacement transformer.

SOURCE: What is the replacement fuse for a Ryobi 18v charger?

The fuse in mine said 4 amp. I have also used. You can use a 4 amp or lower to replace the original one that blew.

Good Luck

SOURCE: Trace inverter high AC voltage

Not to worry. First thing is you are probably not using a true RMS volt meter. You are reading an average voltage of peak. You have a sine wave inverter. The RV 2012 has a peak of 164 volts. I could go into much more tech detail but may confuse you. If you want to learn more her is a link from my dealer tech sheets. Also if you have checked voltage in a float state it will read high.
Hope this helps you
Thank you for using Fixya and please rate us.

SOURCE: I changed my macbook screen,

This could be a backlight issue, an inverter issue or a logic board issue. Look at the screen closely, if there is a faint image it's either a backlight issue or inverter issue. To weed out between the two you can just order on inverter, they're 20 bucks on ebay, if that doesn't work, replace the backlight. Maybe the new screen was not wrapped right when it was shipped, that can easily break the backlight bulb. make sure you connected the inverter to the white and pink wires correctly. Backlight repairs are somewhat difficult. As much as I would like to be able to tell you a quickfix that will solve backlight the problem, it's a pretty arduous repair that requires 1-2 hours for a trained person. It's feasible to do it yourself if you're tech savy, but you'll most likely have to google for guides that show you exactly how to replace the backlight step by step. I work for Mac Repair NYC and i have to fix this problem a lot, it's so easy to break the lightbulb in the process.

Can I plug a camera, shaver, or cordless tool battery charger into this Modified sine wave


Yes you can and no it won't harm it unless something is wrong with it or the charger.

The inverter output doesn't get to the battery, just the chargers output.

Trace SW 5548 output ac voltage is 164 volts, under a medium to heavy load it will lower to a 142 or 144 volt output.


Is your 12 volt source able to supply 1500 watts of power? You can't draw more watts out than you put in. What is your 12volt source? A standard automotive alternator cannot make close to 1500 watts.

Xantrex Inverter/Charger has no AC output


HI

Checking AC Output
1. After the battery voltage and connections have been checked, disconnect the inverter.s AC output wires from
the power distribution system and connect a light to the AC output of the inverter/charger.
2. Disconnect the remote panel to eliminate it as a possible problem.
3. Turn the inverter ON using the power switch on the front panel of the inverter. The 100-watt light should
illuminate. Measure the voltage at the AC output wires using the multimeter. The reading should be 114.126
VAC or approximately 230 VAC if the unit is an international model. If the light does not illuminate, there is
a problem with the inverter. Contact Xantrex technical support.

Lost the wall charger of my Schumacher 400w power inverter (model PP-2200), where can I get another one?


Ah, I see, it seems what you have is a power pack. If so it would contain a gelcell battery, probably 12 volts. If this is true, then you may charge it with any 14-16 volt wall charger. You have to make sure you observe correct voltage and correct polarity when connecting up. Also you may have to obtain and change the plug on the charger wire.
I'm assuming the battery DC output is inverted to AC and you use it to power small AC appliances.

Can A cobra inverter be plugged in to 115AC for DC 12volt output


in a word no!,,,,it cannot and you may blow it up if you hook it up to the 115ac volt supply,,,in side it there is a switch mode power transistor,,that bumps up the 12 volts to 115 volts it only works the one way,,that is 12 volts dc in and 115 volts ac out,,,,

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?

My tram 2512 is stuck in waiting for AC mode, ac is clearly reaching the unit, both by shore power and genset. What could the problem be?


If you are referring to a Trace 2412 inverter, which series is it? An SW or a DR series? In either case, if it won't accept generator power, but the AC input indicator is flashing, the problem is most likely the generator output power is off frequency or voltage. Trace inverters will only connect when the AC input is within certain limits. I'd suggest checking the frequency and voltage output of the generator. If it won't connect to shore power, check the voltage from that source. Make the voltage checks at the inverter input terminals.

Trace DR 2412 inverter won't run older front-loading washer


IF your washing machine is a conventional model with a common AC induction motor, waveform isn't the problem. Normal starting current for typical AC induction motors is usually 5 to 7 times the rated running current. Even though that current draw only lasts a fraction of a second, it's marginal for a 2.4 kw inverter's surge capacity. The trick of switching on other small loads (preferably resistive loads like incandescent bulbs) before starting the washer may help. Another area to check is your battery cables and connections The inverter pulls a huge amount of current to produce it's max surge output and even a little resistance in the battery circuit may cause the inverter to trip off. If you've got one of the fancy new electronic controlled washers with a D.C. motor, (so called energy saving or high efficiency models) then the waveform may be an issue and a pure sine wave might be needed.
