I think your tryiong to charge NIMH batteries oon a charger designed for Lithium Ion batteries. With all the new style batteries such as NICAD, NIMH and LI-ION, charging becomes difficult. Most chargers pre NIMH and LI-ion, were designed for NICAD's. The best advise, match your batteries with the correct charger

Sorry Mate your battery is dead...
The makita lithium batterys dont like getting worked hard quickly.
There is a chip in them that recognice each battery to each specific charger. Try another charger. This has not worked for me. Try anyway

there is a problem with the charger and given the age I would take it to an authorized dealer and get a replacement. If you give me your general area I will try and locate one close to you. Please before voting if you need more assistance let me know. Thank you

SOURCE: I have two drills, two
I have to agree, I assume you have tried the the same battery on both chargers? is it possible that one charger ruined all the batteries? I wish I could offer some real help other then to say "hmm." But my best guess is that one charger ruined all the batteries. unless you use them both at the same time, then it would be hard to have them all quit at once. -

Testimonial: "Thank you for your fast response! I now see one charger does not seem to work at all. I might have used the bad charger to charge all of them. Thanks!"
