If the battery is blinking orange, it means there is a problem with the battery connection. Try taking the battery out, use a canned air canister and clean out the area, and connect the battery back.
If that doesn't help, there is a change that it's a power error.

Greetings Gurus. I have Makita charger model DC18RC, battery model is 18v BL1815...manual is of limited help. I'm trying to understand what the indicator lights mean, what the time is for charging,


I agree that the pictographs are not very helpful. You probably have one of the new chargers. I have an old one, which is a little easier to figure out.

From top to bottom

1. The flashing green light with the electric plug indicates that the unit is plugged in and ready to go.
2. The flashing red little fan means that the battery is too warm so it is just cooling it and not charging it at that moment.
3. The solid red empty battery outline means that it is charging but hasn't got very far, less than 80% full.
4. The mostly full battery outline with both solid red and green lights at the same time means it is 80% full or more
5. The full battery outline and solid green with the musical notes means it is full up.
6. The broken battery outline with flashing red and green means you've got a broken battery.
7. The yellow light with the wrench means the charger is "conditioning" the battery, whatever that means.
8. The yellow light with the fan means "cooling abnormality."

Hope this helps

Sudden discharge of batteries


The icon may indicate the batteries are fully charged and your measurements would indicate this but I suspect the batteries are no good..

My acer aspire 6530 suddenly stopped charging the battery, it works with battery, works with battery and main power supply (yet, as long as the battery is still charged), and it certainly doesn't work with...


Seems like this is the case of a bad power supply adapter, and needs to be replaced. But to make sure we are on the right track, you mention towards the last statement, you said that when your laptop is off, and the battery is installed on, and without the power supply, the computer power button would flash and no sign of life right? Well take these step to see if it is the power supply, 1, check to see if the small green light is lighting from the powersupply adapter. If it is not, then 100% you have a bad power supply. 2, does the laptop power on when using the power adapter only, and with the battery pulled out? If not, then 85% still is your power supply and the other 15% is your power jack, either is loose, or bent, as we tend to plug in and out alot. 3, Does the laptop power on with the battery itself without the power supply adapter? If it does, it is not your battery. The reason to the laptop power light blinking with the battery installed only could be that the battery is low/drain and does not have issufiect charge to power up your laptop. And to say that when your system is on and your plug in the powersupply, and the small battery icon says it's charging but actually it is not. It could still be your powersupply, it is damaged but a smart chip installed on your powersupply only sending signal to your laptop, this chip is only to prevent the battery from over charging. So if you have another power supply, you cna test this out. But at this point, they was you described things, I believe it to be the power supply. I hope this help, if you have any question, let me know.

I have a dell inspiron 1525 the battery light was blinking orange and wouldnt come on so listening to an expert i bought a new battery when you first plug it in should the light still be orange??


Hi. Blinking orange light on battery indicator means it's charging. To make sure, point your mouse to the battery icon on the Taskbar located on the lower right-hand corner of your screen...near the system time and speaker icons. It should say plugged in, charging. If you see "plugged in, not charging, then you need to call Dell Phone Support for additional help.

Won't turn on, but the charge icon blinks 3 times


It has enough juice in the battery to light up the lcd lights but not enough to turn it on. Could be the power supply. Consult a reputable service center and have it checked out. Good luck.

Battery level


As Suzaku explained:
A battery icon will show up on the LCD screen of your camera when it is already low and needs recharging. It can be found at the lower right side of your LCD screen. The ready light of your camera will also blink red and your camera will turn off if the battery is exhausted.
NOTE:
The icon will not appear if the batery is sufficient and there is no TECH way of making the icon show until the batt needs charging.

Recharging?


This product uses a built-in rechargeable Li-ion battery which is charged by usb power. So when you plug it into your Computer or Laptop it recharges with the power it get through the usb port. You can also buy a USB AC Charger for MP3 Players it plugs into your wall outlet and has two usb ports on the bottom to plug into. You can get on at Walmart for about $15.00 called MusicPower

There are even USB Charger for you Car as well.


Charging Section of the User Manual
This icon will be displayed at the upper left corner of the screen. The following pictures indicate the
charging status of the battery:
(1) When the battery is charging, the battery icon will be changing from an empty battery to a full battery icon to indicate the process.
(2) The following icon will replace the charging one when it is full but the power supply is not being cut off. Which is a Battery Icon with a Lighting Bolt in the center of the icon.
(3) The player will automatically shut off when the power is used up. In this case, all setting will be
saved.
