    I have had a similar issue with the vision 2. Found that the issue with the PSU was down to the plug connection between the battery and the supply. If this connection is a wee bit iffy the PSU LED will be green even though the battery is discharged. I found putting a small sliver of paper into the plug provided enough of a snug fit for the male/femail connection to be fully made. Note, always make the connection with the battery before plugging in to the mains.
    I also do this on the battery /light connection as I was getting intermittent operation there as well. I know it all sounds a bit Heath Robinson, however it's simple and it works. Hope this helps (no pun intended). Cheers
  • it's lithium and doesn't like being totally flat for long periods of time, the battery sounds dead. ring hope, they have fantastic customer service. they replaced mine there and then for free.
