I have three PSU01 devices each with a battery. Yesterday Comfort started to complain and I discovered that one of the PSU01s was showing a red light - low battery.
I have replaced the battery and everything is back to normal. However, I have noticed that all three of the LP1, LP2 and LP3 bulbs on that particular PSU01 appear to be black. On the other two PSU01 devices, I can see that the bulbs have clear glass.
That is making me wonder whether there is a problem with this PSU01 which has caused the three bulbs to blow (the black colour maybe suggests that too).
If I am likely to be right, is there something that I can do to replace the three bulbs myself?
Thank you and hope everyone is well - it has been a while!
Good heavens! It is 19 years old! I did not even remember this product.
The LP lamps indicate charging. If these are black it means they have been burnt, that is why they do not work anymore
We dont use these lamps anymore
Perhaps you can buy a similar one from Element14 if you look for 12V Lamp 80 ma
Thanks Chiu - much appreciated, and a great advertisement for Comfort that it's 19 years old and still working.
I have managed to find some 12V 80mA bulbs and have fitted them. There will have been a couple of days with the new battery not being charged (through the old bulbs).
I guess it has been running off mains power for all that time - but I still expected to see a glow from the new bulbs for a while as the battery was topped up - but nothing. Maybe it didn't need any charge, maybe something else is broken. Time will tell, I guess.
You should see a glow if it is charging with high current. this should graduallly disappear as the charging current reducesTo test if the battery is charged, switch off the mains, aand see ifComfort will continue working or report low battery
The newer comforts use resetable fuses which do not burn up
