Overload / Over temp light is on

I have a Heart Freedom Combi inverter / charger that has the overload / over temp light on. It is no longer charging the batteries. The last time this happened I had a battery with a dead cell in my four 6 volt battery bank. Replaced the battery and everything has worked fine for two years. I checked the batteries this time and they are fine.
The 15.6 red led is blinking.
When I had the batteries disconnected the voltage at the terminals on the inverter read 12.7 VDC. The overload light did not go out. The unit is not hot to the touch so I assume that means it is no over temp?
I cannot find the manual for the unit so I am stuck for further steps to take.
I am looking forward to your help. Thanks.

That did it. As with most devices now days, if they don't act right, turn 'em off and back on again. There is no reset button on my unit. In this case disconnecting from shore power, removing the DC power cable and waiting until the residual voltage dropped to zero did the trick. Once the power was restored the unit returned to working as it should.
Thanks for the reply.
