Question about Ryobi Multi-Volt Battery Charger
Hi, I'm trying to determine if the batteries or the charger is dead. Neither battery will hold a charge, and when I put them in the charger I get both the Charge Plus(Yellow) and the Fully Charged(Green) indicator lights. There is voltage (24.2 vdc) and current present on the charger. The batteries are #1314702, 14.4v Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks, Dave
I had the same problem. No need to repeat it here, but I found this solution worked for me. In case I didn't embed / post it right, copy / paste this into your browser: http://youtu.be/GhRQZEeQzP0 Hope that helps

Same thing was happening with my Ryobi 18V Nicad Charge + batteries. I boujght a 18V Chicago Electic quick charger from Harbor Freight tools, and just jumped the wires to the battery while monitoring the voltage with my meter. It started around 9v, and while the Ryobi Charger did nothing, the Chicago electric charger cycles on/off repeatedly till the voltage goes up to around 20 volts or so. At that time, I simply put the battery in the Ryobi Charger and it instantly went to the red "fast charging" mode. Seems it needs some decent battery in the battery before it will actually charge it. FYI. the charger from Harbor Freight #43933 cost me $4.95 !

I've open the charger and found that Q4 is open. But they have removed the part number from the component so you can't get a replacement.

Same problem here...Where in the hell are the serial #'s located anyway? I don't have any info on my batts listed on them except P-100 and "G0444" and a rep told me via email that neither one of these are the #'s they need to release warranty info to me....
Whatever....S'why I just bought a Dewalt 5 pack...Bulletproof.....

I had the same problem, but when I saw hotrod182s post that raised a flag in my mind so I connected a battery eliminator to the battery for a couple of minutes and put it back in the charger and now its working.

I found out the probem is the battery, not the charger. The cells of the batteries build up corrosion on the terminals inside and won't charge any longer. There's a guy on ebay who sells a method of revitalizng the battery. I tried it, it works.
