  3. We have been using the meter for a year now ..but all of sudden it started displaying failed…we ain’t able to recharge the token tmwe bought …although we exhausted our unit ..what can we do?

    • kindly do a reset, the steps to reset the prepaid meter are covered on this content, if you still encounter such issues, kindly reach out to your marketer of visit the office of Disco nearest to you to complain at the customer care.

  4. From the first day our meter was installed, it keep on giving us FAILED response whenever we tried to input the meter to the monitor, what can be done

    • please kindly send us an email, and we try to assist you the best we can, please note we are not IKEJA electric staff, we only make recommendations based on our own personal experiences and the steps we took to resolve it, and of cause, everyone experiences different drama with MOJEC Prepaid Meter.

  7. A prepaid meter was installed by one of moject agents and right from the day of installation there was already problem, the wire transmitting power into our compound fell off the prepaid meter after Mojec agent left, we called him and he said we should call an electrician to help him screw it tight, when we encountered similar issues again, the electrician wanted to screw it tight again and he realized that the prepaid meter wasn’t tightened to the wall at all and will fall off if left there he couldn’t break the seal to tightened properly, so the electrician kept it on our uncompleted decking , later a IKEDC official was assigned to us, we waited hopelessly for the IKEDC official assigned to us by the IKEDC customer service who kept postponing his appointment to come & fix the meter properly. On Monday 10th July, 2021 evening when the power was restored we didn’t have light and we felt it was the issues of the wire falling off until we realized that it was actually the prepaid meter being completely faulty. Eventually, the IKEDC official showed up and still haven’t found a permanent solution to any of our problem; he sent us a code to input into the meter box and after few days the power went off again. we have been in complete darkness while others have power supply.

  8. What could be the possible solution for my prepaid meter, The light is showing on it,but not giving out in the house. Pls help

  9. Please the meter in my house is showing light but not delivering power to the house, what’s the problem and necessary steps to take. Even checking my balance credit is not working. The meter is produced by MOJEC international Limited

    • first, you need to confirm if you have exhausted the units on the meter, once the units are empty or used up, the power supply is cut off automatically.

      Also in most cases, once the units are empty, you might likely not be able to check your balance until you input a new set of purchases tokens.

  10. Please,I’ve been trying to recharge my prepaid meter,it keeps showing reject after I I imputed my token. Please help out,what can I do about this please.

    • so sorry about that, is it your first time of recharge or you have been able to recharge before now and if you have, then try changing the battery to a new one then plug the monitor into a socket in your apartment, make sure there is power supply in your vicinity and try input the codes again.

    Kindly assist.

  14. Good morning Mr. Johnson,

    I have been having difficulty in recharging my mojec prepaid meter.

    Upon inputting the purchased recharge token, it displays failed. I have tried several times since yesterday and my units on the meter is already very low.

    Kindly assist me please.

    Thanks in anticipation of your prompt response.

    • You have to go back to where you bought and hopefully, they can trace it in their records, and reprint it for you, else you might have to buy another one, and would also like to recommend that, once you buy a new token, snap it on your phone immediately as backup

  15. Good afternoon, my meter is showing relay disconnected sign. I have imputed the code sent by IE yet power is not restored to my apartment. What can be the issue ad solution. Thank you

  16. Good day sir/ma.
    The CIU box I have with me was activated with a wrong card number meant for another prepaid meter and it displayed success. The rightful owner of the card number used the same card number on her CIU box and it displayed Success too. I have been attempting to use my own card number but it is displaying “failed” for the past 3 weeks. How do I get to use my card number to activate my prepaid meter. Although, my prepaid Meter is not displaying any light and there is power supply in my apartment. Could this be the issue?
    I have called a mojec agent who installed, mojec customer care and reported to PHCN but none is coming forth to the rescue.

  17. My first time using prepaid when I load the token it showed success and it was showing the green light then the follow morning it started showing red then I check the balance it was 29.23 I don’t know if is low

    • if this is your first recharge, you would need to take it to Disco office/Ikeja Electric or EKO Electric Customer Care Service at thier office to configure your first recharge.

  18. Good Day Mr. Johnson,

    I have two issues i will like you to attend to.

    Firstly, my prepaid meter at work was at 2units as at Friday expecting it to finish so i load on Monday, i noticed it didn’t finished early on that day till the close of day, on getting to work i checked it read about 12units, at as the last time i checked before the close of work it increased to 18unit, it was the next day i realised that there is a negative sign on it. i will like to know why is it reading negative and still discharging light when i didnt opt in to borrow units. Also why is it reading so fast within the space of 2days, its reading 24units and the last one i use which was 38units for 10days

    Secondly, i bought unit and try loading it and it kept reading E -1 and this was actually the problem i faced when loading at the first time of which it was rectify by the Officials and i was told i wont encounter such when loading the second time. how should i go about this.

    Kindly assist, I await your prompt feedback. Thanks

  19. I really appreciate the reset procedures really helped me when my credit got exhausted and tried many ways of recharging. Pls note that as you insert functioning battery into your UIU, you must as well plug it to power source following all the procedures highlighted and continue the process, either show good/success. It will work. My meter is a Momas meter under IBEDC.

    Thank you very much

  20. My mojec prepaid box keeps showing failed since it ran out of unit yesterday. I can’t recharge nor check balance. I can’t do anything

    I even went as far as getting a new duracell battery to plug it directly into the wall socket, but it’s still showing failed. Way out please as I’m currently on black out

    • Kindly visit the nearest Disco office close to your area to make an official complaint, if all the steps in this article didn’t work out, then it might be a technical problem and would also advise not to wait for your units to finish before recharging, as it gets tricky most times when trying to recharge after the units has been exhausted
