Default Help with Integy 16x8x6 charger/dyno

Just want to check if anybody have this problem (or if this a problem) with the Integy 16x8x6 charger dyno combo.

Problem is I want to cycle a one heat used battery,
use the discharge to charge function,
simply charge a dead shorted battery...

I keep on getting the same error... please see attached picture.

Sometimes I'm able to charge but most of the time it doesn't work. I only had this for a week and just started to use it, no race action yet.

Hope anybody here can help

i have had the same error. i usually just try to charge again, and it'll go away. pretty gay, though. are you using the internal power supply? i suspect that using an external p/s would alleviate this problem. unfortunately, i am not sure what is causing this. low line voltage??

I ran into that problem tonight with the 16x7 charger. I found that my Power Supply was outputing 11Vdc at the output and then the charger under laod was reading down to 10V. Meaning you have either a large voltage drop between PS and charger or your PS is putting out less than 11V.

Good luck, I am looking for a new PS.

BTW - I also ran into problems with the AC from some generators at the track causing glitches and noise therefore the charger was shutting down and/or false peaked. Integy doies not have a solid PS built in to there chargers.

Their manual says the AC outlet need a minimum of 110V, they also mentioned about using an seperate 12V power supply.

Thanks for all the replies. Seem to be a problem with the internal power supply. Also better check the power in my home.

This is no good

Try using a 13.8V power supply, that might help. I've heard of people having input errors when using power supplies that only put out 12V (computer ps)
