We are hearing from more and more people who have a solar inverter on their house that isn’t working. When they are looking at the inverter the screen is blank, and none of the lights are on.
This is not very helpful, as there are no error codes telling you what is wrong. How can you tell what needs to be done to fix it?
If your solar inverter is like this, it means one of 2 things:
1. No DC power is getting to your inverter
2.The inverter is broken
Firstly, check that your inverter is switched on, the DC isolator need to be in the ON position:
If you have switches for your DC (PV ARRAY MAIN SWITCH), check they are up. If there are indicators underneath the breakers, check that they are red, not green.
It is also worth doing a reboot of your system, click here to find out how you should do this.
