Multiplus 12/1600/70 alarm flashing. Charger on. what does this mean?

I connected a LifePo4 and the result is a blinking alarm LED and charging LED permanently on.

I have the settings on the minimum cut-off for the battery and somewhat higher charging current than default on the inverter (changed 50A to 70A - both within the range of the battery specs).

No load.

Why the blinking alarm?

multiple inverters

@clive87 Chapter 7 of the manual gives details regarding the alarm Led.

Maybe also consider downloading the handy Victron toolkit app.

If you go to the download site for your phone, you'll find the Victron toolkit.

I don't find the LED part very helpful. Saying that before you complain ;-)

What would help is if you tell us the settings in the Multiplus.

I am actually still trying to wake a sleeping lithium. Manufacturer claimed the default setting on the inverter was set set at too low a charge current but this does not seem to be the problem. The strange blinking has stopped.

I wait and see . . .

Thanks for the links I am following up.
