SO if you have NO power to the outlets check the breakers on the inverter, should have 2 push button style breakers, if that is not the problem I would power down the inverter and then restart it and see if that helps. IF you are still having problem verify your DC voltage the inverter needs good DC voltage to make the AC voltage, if the voltage was low the inverter would shut down and protect the batteries..

Let me know if you still need more help on this....

The inverter has an on/off switch which made no difference. Nor did turning the inverter on or off. The V in the batteries is 12.6. No reason to think it is too low. And how do I verify if the DC is “good”?

IF you DC battery voltage is 12.6 volts then it is good, if the breakers are not tripped it could be an internal problem with the inverter, on the inverter are there any blinking lights, if so how many times are the blinking what color etc...
