VENUS GX WI-FI connection problem


My Venus does not built up the WIFI.

I had the connection 1 time successfully but since then I was not able to find the WIFI again.

I have tried to enable the WIFI (reset for 1sec) and reset to standard settings (reset for 4sec) but the green and red LEDs still shine continuously. (no blinking...)

Does anyone know a way to built up WIFI again?

12/500 LED unknown fault indication

Hi, My 12/500 phoenix inverter has the red and green leds flashing alternately at a steady rate when I power on, the unit wont power up 240V and the bluetooth dongle just says it is off (I can login and change settings- nothing happens though).

What does this LED sequence indicate? I have checked the battery connections and voltage and everything checks out OK, the manual doesnt show this flash code for the leds.

Fault on Multi Mk2 - not in Manual

Hi All,

I have installed a Mk2 multi I bought recently has been showing an LED fault condition I'm not familiar with, nor can find info about. It's not in the manual.

Absorption and float are on (solid)

And 'inverter on' is flashing

No power output.

This happened twice in the early hours of the morning a week apart. Operated normally in the interim.

The customer has reset the unit by disconnecting from the battery and reconnecting and it has restarted successfully but since it has failed a second time in a week I'm concerned and want to sort it out so it doesn't continue.

Further information: 24/3000 Mk2 MultiPlus updated firmware to latest release and programmed for the site.
24V Tubular Gel batteries ~790Ah, Plasmatronics PL60, off-grid only, No GX device, no BMV (but one will be going in soon) Mixed bag of 24V panels large enough array to fully charge the batteries.

Please advise.

EasySolar charger LEDs do not light up (off-grid set-up)

I have an EasySolar 48/5000/70-100 with CGX, BMV, lead acid battery bank and solar panels. It is an off-grid, residential installation.

The system functions and I can see the charger mode on the CGX or using VRM. However, in trying to better understand my installation, I was wondering why the charger status LED lights on the front (bulk/absorption/float) do not light up (never have). Also, I cannot switch off the charger using the on/off/charger only toggle switch on the front.

Will the Fuse LEDs on Lynx Distributor illuminate without the 4-pin cable supplied with unit?

Trying to use the Lynx Distributor (and Power In) without the Lynx Ion Shunt or BMS (using BYD batteries). I had assumed the Fuse LEDs would illuminate with a working fuse in place and powered, however a line on the old Victron Live page for DC Distribution Systems suggests that this small data cable is used to power the LEDs (rather than taking power from the busbar itself). I cannot get the LEDs to illuminate - are the LEDs useless unless using the Lynx Shunt? Because Lynx Shunt uses CANbus, it cannot be used in conjunction with BYD on a CCGX (though I think VGX would support it).

Multiplus Compact: charger led ON and alarm-led blinking


I'm setting up a Multiplus Compact 12/1200/50 with a Smart LiFePo4 12.8V-160Ah.

Added a VE.BUS BMS Mains detector + VE.BUS MS (10R-05 4003) + digital multi control.

System comes right out of the box; should have been factory pre-programmed to work together.

When switching on with no 230VAC input and no load (no matter inverter or charge), the multiplus leds shows the charger-led on and hte alarm-led blinking. the digital multi control only shows the digits for amps (e.g. 16). When plugging in the 230VAC input, the digital multi control lights up the 'mains'.

I cannot find back the status of 'charge led on + alarm led blinking' in any of the manuals or the Victor led app. I prefer not to let the system be in that state without knowing what it means.

I measured the voltage of the battery and it is fixed 12.80V, no matter in with or without 230VAC input or state 'on/off/charger only'

And when I find the device on the list it just says it needs updating. This is quitting at about 40%. And then I get disconnected.

Furthermore the LEDs on the charger is blinking fast, both the power and mode light. There is not anything about this type of signal in the manual.

SmartSolar 100/20 yellow led flash every 3 seconds

Hi again,

sorry for asking so many question in the last couple of days...I find it kind of hard to find information sometimes, seams like information is spread out on to many places and there is some stuffs that are left unknown..

so today, i notice the yellow led is flashing every 3 seconds, in the manual there is no information about that, there is 2 condition where the yellow light flash would indicate a fault but it would have to have the green or the blue led flashing too. no condition with only the yellow light flashing....

FW is v1.39

status on the MPPT is
absorption mode at 14,8v @ 6A

Pv roughly 33v @2.8A

temp is 24C
was in bulk for 4 hrs this morning now in absorption for 45 minutes

Led light MPPT 75

Hi, I build solar charging stations and we just got our first order in of the mptt75 charge controller. I am installing a Led light to the station. I am trying to test the light to ensure it works properly but when I go into settings I only have the options of turning it on at night and switching off during the day. Is there a way to bypass this just so I can test the light to make sure it is working properly?

Absorption LED and Float LED blinking simultaneously. Voc PV is good but total power ecxeed

Hi everyone,

I am on a charger 150/100 with 21 panels 320 Wc (Isc=9,03A ; Voc=44.6V; Vmp=37.5V). Batteries are temporarily in 24V but should be in 48V in 2 days.

There are 7 chains in parallel done with 3 pannels in series.

I read that when Absorption and float Led blinks simultaneaously, there is charger over voltage. After verification of Voc, it is below 150V. I also read that if there is too much power from PV, the controller will automatically limit the input power. My question is can I run installation during the 2 days. Is it dangerous? Many thanks for your quick answer. Please my client want to run the site

Multi 24/3000 Bulk and Absorption lights constantly blink. Not Trying Equalization

Victron Nube here, familiar with OTG and Inverters.
As the title states my Bulk and Absorption are constantly blinking yellow. In the manual it is stated that this is

"The mains voltage is switched through and the charger operates in equalize mode."

I have not requested an Equalize charge, I turned off that function via software.

Has anyone seen this ?

New MPPT 150/35 LED lights don't come on and no Bluetooth

I'm trying to get my MPPT 150/35 going for the first time. My PVs and Battery bank are hooked up, but the LED lights don't come on at all, nor can my phone detect the controller. I've tested that I have current coming from the PV panels, and that the batteries are fully charged. I've tested right at the Controller, as well as at points along the chain, and I have current.

Is it possible that controller is not coming on because the batteries are already fully charged? Any other suggestions?

Flickering Lights in home @ low PV/Quattro levels

Hello everyone, and thank you for any all helps and responses in advance.

  • My home is off the grid.
  • Its an AC coupled system, with a SMA sunnyboy 5kw inverter
  • I am running a Victron Quattro 48/8000.
  • I have 48kwh lead acid battery bank.

When my PV is at very low levels - hard to define a clinical level, but approx sub 300watts - i.e. in the morning at sunrise and evening at sunset, the lights in my home flicker / strobe.

Already tried:

1) I have tried it with old tungsten bulbs and with new LED bulbs - same issue across both.

2) When I increase the load in the house significantly (Over 1.5kw approx e.g. by turning on a heater) the issue resolves itself.
My normal base load/usage in the house is approx 350-450 watts but as you can imagine that is rarely constant.
Obviously I cant be running heaters/using excess loads just to resolve the issues as I live off the grid with limited power reserves.

3) We had the same issue with the fronius 5kw inverter we had in before - we then swapped this out for the SMA sunnyboy - exact same issue / no difference.

4) I have run my lighting circuits through an online UPS sinewave inverter - cures the issue immediately.

Given what I have tried above, have to be left to believe it is the Quattro, generating a poor quality sinewave/poor elecricity supply at low levels...

Is there a know issue at low levels with the Quattros?
(Ive searched the forums before posting - I cannot see anything)

What else can you suggest I attempt to resolve this issue?

Many thanks
