Desk +44 (0)20 8543 3131 or your nearest PAG Authorised Service
Centre. Alternatively, visit the PAG Web Site at www.paguk.com.
SECTION 4
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
4.1
IMPORTANT: Note section 4.16 Supply Failure. V4-iPC chargers may
be disconnected from the supply at any time in complete safety and
without damage to the charger or any batteries connected.
4.2
Connect the charger to a suitable supply using the standard lead.
The blue LCD screen will illuminate.
4.3
On power-up, the charger will automatically run a self test program.
4.4
With no batteries connected, the display will show ‘ABST’ on all four
channels.
4.5
When batteries are connected, charging will automatically commence
and the display will show ‘CHRG’ on the appropriate channels.
4.6
Li-Ion batteries are charged simultaneously, using PAG’s Intelligent
Parallel Charging program (see ‘Charging Times’ Section 2.17).
NOTE: Nickel-Metal Hydride batteries are charged sequentially.
5
4.7
The battery status will show ‘DONE’ when a battery has received as
much charge as it can safely accept.
4.8
As Li-Ion batteries near the end of charge, the charge current is
reduced. This is perfectly normal for the ‘constant voltage’ phase of
the charge cycle.
4.9
During the charge phase, a white ‘ball’ will be seen moving around
the channels which have batteries connected, often on more than one
channel simultaneously. This is the ‘Process Indicator’ and shows the
user which channels are being processed at any given time.
4.10
Batteries may be removed, and others connected at any time, without
affecting the operation of the charger.
4.11
The charger will continue to monitor the status of all charging
channels. It will not attempt to charge batteries which are ready or
faulty. If a battery is now disconnected, the battery status will revert to
the absent state. If a new battery is connected to the free channel, the
charging sequence will be initiated automatically. The order in which
batteries are connected is therefore immaterial; the charger will ensure
that all batteries are charged in as short a time as possible.
4.12
If the charger detects a faulty battery while the charging program is
running, the battery status will show ‘FAIL’. This could be caused by
one of several conditions, such as a very old or damaged battery, a
short circuit battery, or an excessively high or low voltage battery.
4.13
The charger will not recognise the connection of a battery which has
a voltage substantially outside of its range or one of unsuitable
chemistry type.
4.14
If the internal protection circuit of a PAG or Sony Lithium-Ion battery
should turn-off, for any reason, the battery display will not operate, and
there will be no voltage at the battery terminals. The V4-iPC incorporates a Recovery Charge program which will automatically turn the
protection circuit back on again.
4.15
If the charger should detect a fault during operation, it will shut down to
a safe condition with the message ‘SAFE SHUTDOWN’ on the screen,
and the reason for the shutdown (e.g. ‘UNIT OVERHEATED’) will be
shown. See Section 5.4 ‘Servicing and Repairs’.
4.16
If the AC mains power fails during operation, the charger will shut
down safely; no damage will occur to either the charger or the
batteries. When the mains power is restored the charger will default to
the main charge program.

SECTION 5
SERVICING & REPAIRS
5.1
WARNING: To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not attempt any
servicing or repairs unless you are qualified to do so. Refer all
servicing or repairs to qualified servicing personnel. The charger
contains advanced electronics that do not require periodic
maintenance. Consequently there are no user serviceable parts inside.
5.2
Qualified electronics engineers who wish to gain access to internal
assemblies should note that parts of the power circuit retain a high
voltage even after the mains supply has been disconnected. Wait for a
period of five minutes following disconnection before commencing
disassembly, and be aware of charged capacitors.
5.3
When the charger is correctly connected to a mains supply and the
display is not functioning, it may be that a supply fuse has become
open circuit. Equipment supplied for use in the UK is supplied with a
standard UK mains cordset, complete with a moulded, fused plug. If
this fuse has become open circuit it should be replaced by another of
the correct rating (see ‘Specification’ section 2.12). USE ONLY A FUSE
OF THE CORRECT RATING. If the replacement of the fuse fails to
correct the above symptoms, do not attempt further fuse replacement.
It is likely that a fault has developed. Seek advice from your nearest
PAG dealer or direct from PAG Ltd., London, by telephoning +44 (0)20
8543 3131.
5.4
V4-iPC chargers feature a fail-safe shutdown mode. In the unlikely
event of an internal malfunction, an error message will be displayed on
the screen, see 4.15 above. This could be the result of any number of
undesirable situations from which the system is protecting itself, such
as the obstruction of ventilation slots, causing inadequate cooling, or
the microcomputer’s detection of an internal fault. In these cases the
charger should be disconnected from the supply, any obstruction of
the air vent system removed, and the unit allowed to cool before
reconnecting to the supply. Should the charger re-enter the fail-safe
shutdown mode, more detailed investigation is required. Make a note
of the error message and seek advice from your nearest PAG dealer or
direct from PAG Ltd., London, by telephoning +44 (0)20 8543 3131.
5.5
Unqualified personnel should not attempt further investigation (see
paragraph 5.1 above). Any such interference would invalidate the
guarantee and invariably cause more damage than the original fault.
