Vcr/dvd issue with genny

Recommended Posts

I’ve had this same issue with two diff units. It works fine on the inverter.  But shuts off at a indescriminate point while running genny power. It wont turn back on for a while.  Tv plugged into same outlet always works.  Surge?

Dirty power....something is way sensitive, maybe get a surge protector and plug that into the outlet then the devices into that????

 

I'm not an electrician or engineer, but I did pass a Holiday Inn Express today.

Poor frequency (hertz) that genny puts out could be just enough to interrupt sensitive equipment, but rarely the case when everything else is working.

Most surge protectors protect against high current which is usually corrected by the unit. So that would tell me if any thing it would low.

Did you try another outlet? Another circuit?  Could it be the load side of outlet?   Did you use the same cord of new?  If you havnt already go the easy route first.

Btw.... some of the best  natural pron is on VHS

Maybe your genny voltage is too high or low, or the freq might be off. The next time you use it, use a multimeter to check the voltage and see what it's putting out.
