    I have 2 batteries and one charges, so I'll rule out the bad charger. I'll try cleaning the contacts (unplugging first) and see if it goes red. If not, it'll go back to be responsibly disposed of.

Talked to Ryobi and they are vague. It can either mean that the battery is bad, or the charger is bad and another one that maybe the contacts of the battery are dirty or not seating fully in charger. What I would look for in this instance first unplug the charger and look into charging slot to make sure the terminals of the charger are not bent and they come out into the cavity where battery would go. If not gently pull terminal into opening and retry. Sorry I couldn't be of more assistance

This happens on some of my batteries. On at least two of mine I got busy and left then in the charger (forgot them) and the light switched to red and the battery charged. So far I don't have a good solution to what is going on. That is why I was looking at the inet.

My ryobi 14.4 v cordless, when i put the battery in the charger the yellow and green light both stay on and does not charge. this happens with both chargers and battery packs


If i have this striaght two chargers and the green and yellow lights are on and the batterys will not charge and there 14.4v batterys correct . Then the batterys must be no good unless bolth chargers are bad and have the same problem witch is exterimly unlikely. most likely the batterys and are NG.They don't do well if left in cold condutions or hot for that matter but cold is worse . 14.4 V is is an unasul size and if its not a lithuim ion battery its going to be obisilete and unavaible soon if not already . Ihad the same problem with my RYOBI 7.2 volt can't get the batterys for under a 100 dollars thats one and a speical order i paid 39 dollars for the gun and 2 batterys . They make the money off resale on batterys . And you can do far better then RYOBI for a screw gun now a days

Yellow and green light are on but wont charge battery?


If both lights are on and both are flashing the charger is reading the battery as defective and the charger won't charge the battery. If the Red light (yellow if plastic is faded) is on and the green is flashing the charger is trying to charge the battery. If the battery won't charge replace it.

How do you test a charger for my 18 volt ryobi 4 pac (it has a circular saw, sawzall, flashlight and drill) all of a sudden it would not charge batteriesaanymore and before i buy a new charger i want...


When you insert a battery for charging, which light(s) combination do you see?. There should be red,green and yellow and different individual lights or combinations of lights mean different things. If only the red light goes on, chances are the batteries are to cold to charge. They will not charge below 32F so if your charger is in the garage, take the batteries in the house until they are room temp then try again. If you still have a problem and the unit or batteries are are less than 2 yrs old they should be be under warranty.

Green and red light comes on when i put battery in charger what does that mean?


Here is the manual:
http://toolboyworld.com/eBay/Ryobi_P120/P120_566_eng.pdf

Red = quick charge
yellow = evaluating
green = charged

CHARGING A COOL BATTERY PACK
If battery pack is within normal temperature range, the red LED on charger will come on.

Red LED should remain on for approximately 1 hour then the green LED will come on. Green LED on indicates battery pack is fully charged and charger is in maintenance charge mode.

Green & Yellow light on 14.4V charger


It sounds like your battery is bad.

If both yellow and green LEDs come on, this indicates
a deeply discharged or defective battery pack.
Allow the battery pack to remain in the charger for 15
to 30 minutes. When the battery pack reaches normal
voltage range, the red LED should come on. If the
red LED does not come on after 30 minutes, this may
indicate a defective battery pack and should be
replaced.
n After normal usage, a minimum of 1 hour of charging time
is required to fully recharge battery pack.

It sounds like your battery is bad. If yellow and green are on for more than 15 minutes it probably a defective battery pack. See page 8 in the manual.
