    Default What is wrong with my CTEK charger?

    Hi.
    Does anyone have any idea what could be wrong with my CTEK charger? It has been servicing all of my batteries (deep cycle, car etc) for years without any problems. This recently started. I have tried it with different batteries with different discharge states. All of the batteries I know is 100% working. As can be seen in the video, it's as if the charger does not enter charging mode.

    Is there something I can try, or somewhere I can send the charger for repairs?

    I also had a Ctek MXS 5.0, which packed up after very little use. The agents said it was beyond repair and I was very disappointed with the outcome. Then bought an Optimate 7, which is working very well and also used for desulfating 104 Ah deep cycle batteries successfully.
