Power supply problem and questions

When charge for 2mins, my power supply will suddenly shut off, my pulsar competition charger will beep loudly saying in the LCD screen "Charge interrupted, no input XXXXX",

then my power supply will auto comes back to live again a few seconds later and charger will continue to charge a few amps, then after 10secs, power supply shut off again...

Does that means my power supply gone case already?

I am using a DC12V 34Amp 400V power supply..
I just use the power supply to power my charger to charge my batteries only...

I am not sure on what kind of power supply should I get so that it can work with LRP pulsar competition? can someone tell me what kind I should get?

or is it my charger got problem?

many thanks for advise
Ken

what do u mean by 400V? ur power supply run only on 400V input?
bring it to a hobby shop and ask them to help you check it. my guess is your power supply is the culprit

Do you mean 400W? check the batts first.. It could be false peaking due to bad batts.. else, make sure that the light behind the power supply is green and not red.

Depends on the input specs of your charger. The PS must be able to supply at least the maximum/suggested input current to maximize the charger's capabilities.

u can try BK shop at queenstown, he sells some power supplies, nice ones or even industrial ones, you can check with him which one is compatible with your charger, i believe most or maybe all are compatible.
