    I would get on the phone to marineco and talk to their tech people. I can see your unit going bad but showing green lights says your getting power to part of the circuit boards and getting green and both banks not charging is odd for a dual bank charger. Normally you will just lose 1 bank and get a steady charging light. Might get lucky and they might help you out. One thing I would do is replace fuses just for grin's.

    If you're not getting any voltage to the leads of the charger, the charger is either bad, or the fuses are blown. It's pretty much that simple. With the "green light" on, the charger probably thinks the batteries are charged and is not putting out any voltage. Unless there is a way to reset the "brain" to where it's reading the battery voltage, then it's probably a goner.

    Test the fuses with a test light.

The Marinco 2 bank charger had the all green ready to go light, needless to say made it to Barkley and after 1 hour of fishing I noticed the trolling motor was slowing down to a crawl, this cut my plans of fishing so had to pack up and head home. When I finally made back home I plugged the charger back in and itís showing the green and ready to go light, so I checked the voltage at the batteries and itís not charging. I looked at the fuses and they appeared to be okay. Has anyone had issues like this? And is it possible a 2 year old Marinco charger is bad

    NEVER just look at a fuse !!!! ALWAYS check the fuse with a meter and make sure you got continuity and the fuse is good !!!
