I have a TK-280 and when i put it on the charger the red charging light comes on the starts flashing red after about a min. I am on the fire dept. where i live and kinda need it charged up. I wanted to...


  • Couple things this could be.
  1. First thing is to make sure the radio is seated properly in the charger and that all the contacts are making contact and not dirty.
  2. The other thing this could be is that the battery is bad. Or in the least the capacity for the battery is extremely bad and not reliable.
  3. If the contacts look good and it's sitting on the charger proper than you will need to get another battery pack. Sorry.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Regards, Tonyu

When I try to charge my batteries the red and green lights of my NTN1168A desktop charger flashes. I use the MTS2000 hand radio.


1) Hand oil can cause a film on your battery contacts. Clean your battery contacts on both the radio and the charger with a pencil eraser and try seating the radio/battery on the charger again. Be certain the radio is turned off.
2) It is possible your battery is too low to charge. A form of jump starting would be to let the battery set on the charger for more than 3 hours to see if the light problem clears.
3) It is possible you have a bad or shorted battery. Try another known good battery on the charger to see if the charger reacts correctly with a solid red light at the beginning of a normal charge cycle.

Best regards.

The battery is flashing red when charging


You do not mention which model of Motorola radio you are charging, so this will be basic information: Typically if a charger blinks red when the battery is initially put on the charger, you either have:
1) Dirt contacts. Solution: Clean with pencil eraser, both radio and charger contacts.
2) Shorted or bad battery. Solution: Replace the battery.
3) A bad charger. Replace charger.

Some simple troubleshooting might determine your problem. Try the battery on a different charger and see if you get the same blinking light. If so, you have a battery issue. If the problem disappears when you place it on the known good charger, then you know you have a charger issue.

Best regards.

Ntn7143cr battery won,t charge. put in charger flashes red then green.


Clean your battery contacts on the battery and charger with a pencil eraser to assure good contact. Flashing red or flashing in general usually is the sign of a too low to charge battery, a shorted battery or a bad connection. In some instances, a battery will begin to charge once left on the flashing charger for an hour or so. Try this and see if the light becomes constant. If so, it is charging. If it still flashes, replace the battery.

Best regards.

Red light flashing


It is either defective, or it has something touching one of the contacts causing a short. It would be best to replace the charger. Typically they are somewhat like a light bulb, they will burn out over time and need replaced.

GP 360 Radio Charger


On a Motorola charger, when the battery is charging the light should be a constant red (or amber depending on the charger). When the charge cycle is complete the light will change to solid green. Sometimes the solid green time is brief, as the battery will begin to lose charge, and the charger will go back into trickle mode and change once again to red (or amber). In most cases, a flashing light indicates a problem, such as a bad or shorted battery, an incorrectly seated battery, dirty battery contacts, or a bad connection with the battery. (Note: Batteries last 18-24 months typically. Check your date code for the age of the battery.)

There were several chargers made for the GP360, including but not limited to a 60-minute charger, a 90-minute charger, a 10-hour trickle charger and a 6-unit gang charger which would be a rapid rate, either 60- or 90- minute. If you would supply your charger's model number we could tell you which one you have.

Radio won't charge!


I don't know that I have your solution, but I do have a few troubleshooting tips.

Flashing typically means: your battery is possibly old, bad or is not making good contact. Clean your battery contacts with a pencil eraser to ensure they are making good contact with the charger. Also check your charger contact to see that they are free of debris. They can also be carefully cleaned with an eraser. (Do not use any type of solvents on either contacts.)

Second, check the date code on your battery. It is 3 or 4 digit number on the label. Batteries last approx. 18-24 months before starting to fail. Here is how to read the code: 835 would be 2008 the 35th week. If the battery is more than 2 years old, you should consider replacing it.

It is wise to have your radio turned off while on the charger. You can cause harm to the radio if you inadvertently press the PTT while the radio is on the charger. Plus, your radio will never fully charge if left on.
