I have a Ryobi CC-122VRI Cordless Driver I bought about 18 months ago and never used. I cannot get the batteries to charge. When plugged in no light comes on at all. Been charging for 2 hours, still nothing. Please help!

Ryobi batteries are pretty low quality so they are likely bad if they have just been sitting there dead that long. Check the charger with a volt meter to see if it has output. If it does then the batteries are bad.

SOURCE: Ryobi 18V lithium battery won't charge

Hi, Thanks for getting back to me. The yellow and blinking red indicate a defective cell. Since it has lithium cells and is that new any repair to it would be a waste of your time. Ryobi tools purchased in 2008 have a 2 year warranty. I am guessing you probably got it at a home depot and you should return it under the warranty. All new Ryobi tools have a three year warranty. Good Luck! and Thanks for using fixya!

SOURCE: Some Ryobi 18v batteries charge, others don't.

Had the same problem with some makita batteries, Was going to throw them away so decided to take apart and see what was happening. The are made up of 1.5 volt cells soldered together, found that many had .9 volts or less and others had 1.5 or more. This means that some of the cells had gone bad (probably due to lack of chemical reaction). Found that if I collected all of the 1.5 volt together could charge just fine. Problem is it is very hard to get them all soldered back together and even harder to enclose them. If a mfg. could come up with some way to change cells individually they could make a lot of money and save us a lot. So the answer to your question is buy you at least one more battery and recycle your old one.

Ryobi will not start


The saw you're asking about is battery powered, not gas. If this is the actual model you have, I don't know where you could even put the gas. Have you charged the battery?

The battery isn't any good. The charger is just going through it's regular steps. (I know how it is. I just bought two Ryobi 18 volt batteries for my Ryobi cordless drill, reciprocating saw, flashlight,

My 18 V ryobi chain saw doesn't activate


Batteries need to be stored fully charged and recharged every month or so while in storage. Batteries need to be kept cool. Try another battery to see if the battery is bad or if the saw is out of order. Contact Ryobi @ 800 -525-2579 The full extent of your message did not appear on my screen. So I am not sure this helped you.
