Default Accucycle Elite and Input Volt Calibration Message

I have the above charger and every time I turn it now, I get the message "Input volt calibration" with some numbers. If you try and push any buttons, nothing happens. I turn it off and on and it still comes up. I've had this charger about 3 years. Anyone know what the deal is with this? There is nothing mentioned in the manual.

jz,

Is it hooked to the AC/DC power supply? If so that power converter maybe failing. Try hooking it directly to a fresh 12volt car battery and see how it behaves...

If all of the above fail, send it back, Hobbico does a fine job at there repair site even for out of warrenty items..

Good Luck,

Yes, it is hooked to the AC/DC PS and in additon to the calibration message, it shows the voltage as being 17.XXX, whereby it fluctuates. I did plug the charger into my 12V field batt power panel and that did get the charger working again, but only that one time. If I try the 12V now, it shows the same message with a volt readout of 12.XXX.
