If you have tried discharging the batteries prior to charging them already with no result and from what you describe in your post, then I would have to say the charger has issues. Go to HD or Lowes (not sure if Lowes carry Makita) but another charger and test your battery again. If you get the same fault, there is an issue other than the charger, if not you need a new charger anyway. If you get the same fault with the new charger, you can always return the new one. Short of opening up the charger and using a volt meter, this is the easiest way to test to pinpoint the real problem. I hope this helps and good luck!

About the only indication if the charger is not working is when you put the batteries into the charger and no lights come on. This indicated that the charger is faulty. If the lights come on it is most likely the batteries. The best thing to do is take the batteries and charger to a Bosch service center and they will test them for you. Most will do this for free.

You stated you have a 12V Cordless Drill with PA14 batteries. The PA14 battery is 14.4V. The battery may fit in your tool and might work for a while but the motor isn't made for that battery. The way to check the batteries is to try them in another charger, any 14.4V to 18V pod/stick charger will work. The way to check the charger is to try another battery, any good 7.2v to 14.4V pod/stick battery will work. Unless the charger got wet or extremely hot the problem is usually the battery. Just check to make your tool and battery voltage is compatable.
