Repair Sunstar SS-60C CPF00 "Link Master Err"

Postby Ray » Tue Apr 25, 2017 9:19 am

Hi Guys,

I Recently got a Sunstar SS-60C Charge Controller given to me unknown condition. So as it was unknown i opened to check for obvious burns an exploded FET's etc, and found nothing so i powered it up and all seems ok but it comes up with CPF00 "Link Master Err" and according to the manual is the display not being able to talk to the CPU.

I can't find any obvious dry joints or bad connections, so i was wondering has anyone had the same problems and if so if they have had any luck in diagnosing the cause of this problem.

Cheers
Ray

I think that this is where the MPP Solar stuff comes from ?

http://www.mppsolar.com/v3/pcm50cv/

http://www.richelectric.com.tw/s/2/prod ... arger.html

That be the links to compare for your self.

Looks well made shame there might have been some short cuts taken in the design or this stuff could be great stuff :(

Shocked that no one has anything to say about it, this stuff was sold from Jaycar might still be and if you get from them of couse it was rather expensive.
