Charles,
The battery turns on steadily or blinks to indicate battery charge status.
If the computer is connected to an electrical outlet, the light operates as follows:

  • Solid blue - The battery is charging.
  • Flashing blue - The battery is almost fully charged.
If the computer is running on a battery, the light operates as follows:
  • Off - The battery is adequately charged, or the computer is turned off.
  • Flashing orange - The battery charge is low.
  • Solid orange - The battery charge is critically low
Thank You,

Why is the green light blinking on the ryobi battery charger


please check if the RED LED light is flashing or not. If yes, this battery may defective.

If defective, try to repeat the conditions a second time by removing and reinstalling the battery pack. If the LED status repeats a second time, try charging a different battery.

If a different battery charger normally, dispose of the defective pack.

If a different battery also indicates "Defective", the charger may be defective.

Battery light flashing orange


Your battery may have Battery charge status indicator, when you press the button next to the 4 led indicators the LEDs indicate the charge status.
Also the System Battery/Charge LED indicates the battery's current operational condition.
Flashing orange indicates Battery failure.

I ahve a beeping sound that is coming from my garage door opener.


If you have an opener with battery backup this may help. BBU stands for 'battery back up.'

This is battery related. On top of your unit is a battery pack with three colored led lights. You can tell what is going on by looking at these. This information is in your manual or here it is.
GREEN LED: All systems are normal. A solid LED light indicates the batteries are fully charged. A flashing LED indicates the batteries are being charged. NOTE: Batteries do not have to be fully charged to operate the motor unit. YELLOW LED: The motor unit has lost power and is operating off of the BBU. A solid LED with beep, sounding approximately every 2 seconds, indicates the motor unit is activating the door and is operating off of the BBU. A flashing LED with beep, sounding every 30 seconds, indicates batteries are low. Once the power is restored the BBU will recharge. This is indicated by a flashing GREEN LED. RED LED: An error has been detected and the BBU will automatically shut off. The BBU will attempt to restart by reconnecting to the batteries. If the error is still present it will shut itself off again. This process will repeat every 5 minutes or until the error has been resolved. This is used to prevent further draining of the batteries. If a red LED remains on when the power is restored, and is accompanied by a beep sounding every 30 seconds, please call for service.

I have a Chamberlain Whisper Drive and it started beeping. Reading the manual, it seemed that I needed to replace the battery. It is about 5 years old. Replaced the battery and the LED is no longer red but...


On the back of the garage door opener there is a red button. Depress this button and sync your keypad to the opener. This will re-establish the code and reset the remote.

Ryobi charger model # 140295003 has a red and yellow light. When charging red light is on what does the yellow light mean? Also how long should the battery be left in the charger?


Completely wrong. Quoting from the user's manual:

"The charge indicator light (LED), located on the charg- ing stand, will light up red and glow when the char- ger is properly connected to power supply. This light indicates the charger is operating properly. It will remain on until battery pack is removed from charging stand or charger is disconnected from power supply.

After normal usage, 3 hours or less of charging time is required to fully recharge battery pack.

If both red and orange LED indicators glow, the battery pack is deeply or completely discharged, and 6 hours or longer of charging time is required to fully recharge battery pack.

Note: If charger does not charge battery pack or orange LED continues to glow after more than 30 minutes of charging, return battery pack and charging assembly to your nearest Ryobi Authorized Service Center for electrical check."

So to summarize: red = charging. orange (yellow) = fully discharged battery. orange after 30 minutes - bad battery or bad charger.
