Default iCharger 106B "Connection Breakdown" error

I keep getting this message when I attempt to charge. Have tried 3S, 2S, and 1S batteries individually and with a parallel charge board with no luck - the message comes up as soon as I press start/enter to start the charge cycle. The manual says it means an interuption between the battery and the charging source during the charge cycle. Any idea how to clear the error?

Maybe try a different power supply or battery?

Good suggestion. Tried it but no joy! Trying to get hold of tech support at Progressive RC.

I had a similar thing happen and it turns out my charge lead had a short in it, bought a new lead and problem solved.

Did you ever get this figured out?
If not just let me know!

No I didn't get it sorted out. Progressive RC replaced the unit but the second one did the same thing. I think it is getting a spike when I turn on the power supply - I have it hooked up in the sequence shown in the manual. Any ideas?

Your power supply most likely has an issue.
