20191206_125453.mp4Upon suggestion of Daniel (https://community.victronenergy.com/users/3218/danvic.html) here a summary of my issue.
Phoenix inverter 24/1200 230V VE.Direct IEC running at 230V 60Hz.
I took it from Holland to Philippines for my solar installation and it ran OK for 2 weeks. I used it mainly to run a washing machine (inverter unit, NO HEATING, max power 750W, as it is an inverter unit, it does not have starting surges) and some small workshop tools. It worked without any problems. I did not have an internet connection at the time, so it ran on the software version as purchased. At nigh, the unit is switched off. The previous unit was a 1000W unit and it ran under similar conditions without problems for 3 years until I got hit by a huge lightning strike and all my electronics blew up.
Then I got an internet connection and the unit started updating. No problem.
But the next day, the unit did not want to startup, the red/green lights are blinking alternately in 0.5 seconds tact. Maybe nothing to do with the software update, maybe just a co-incidence?
The tool on the 250VA inverter says: "No Calibration, return to Victron service for repair". which is a bit difficult as it was brought into the country "handcarry" and sending it back is a huge issue with the customs here..
Note: The batteries are new (24V 200Ah), there is no load connected during startup, with load connected, it does not help. Disconnecting the battery/reconnecting did not change the situation.
Any suggestions to get this unit back online?
