Hi Guys,
Need help. It seems ESD charger failed while charging at the public station at 240V. Some info. I have VX1 with 19 Leaf modules loaded and firmware updated and configured via rs422. It's been running great and today is one of those days I parked it at the charging station. When I came back, the charging stopped and it was almost charged so I drove it back. Since then the charging is not starting. Also, interestingly battery cooling fan is not starting neither charging or driving. Any ideas? Here are screenshots of the diag. I don't see anything abnormal. I can take the charger out and look inside. Anything particular I should check?

It's a shame that no one replied, this is the sorta discussion that I would love to see. When it happened to me I just bought another one on eBay, but that was back when the Vectrix search actually had some results

Right... Do you still happen to have a broken one that you can sell? Maybe I could make one working out of two?

There's no harm in taking the charger out and having a look
if you're very lucky, it may just be a plug that's come loose internally. out of the 30 or so dead chargers I have seen, maybe 2 have been due to a plug internally working it's way loose
The other 28 dead units sit on my shelf, waiting for an idea of what to do with them (they have a nice aluminium case, and some nice copper inductors and transformers)
