Hi there.
The battery could be faulty, power off the laptop, take out the AC power and the battery wait 2 minutes and put the battery back in, turn the laptop an and look at the indicator LED to see if its changed, if it has plug in AC power and see if its the same.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

Amber flashing light while on home base. New, pulled tab, placed on dock. First time said charge err1, took out battery and replaced. Now just flashes amber. Is this correct?


Your manuals are here. Flashing lights must be covered. A quick look at the site says flashing red is bin full. In fact, I found it. Flashing Amber is CHARGING.

Power light flashing amber


Follow the steps given below. (Please be careful when handling computer electrical components like batteries and AC Adapters)
  • Remove the battery and hold down the power button for few seconds (to drain all remaining power)
  • Power up the computer without the battery with the A/C adapter plugged in.
  • Wait for few seconds and plug the battery back in
After a few tries the computer should start charging normally. The amber battery stops blinking and turn green when fully charged.

Flashing amber and green when charging


I don't know your computer, have you read the Trouble Shooting chapter in its manual? You could try plugging the computer in and leaving it to charge for several hours; my notepad will not display if the battery is flat. Good luck!

Battery light flashing amber


Is the battery a exact spec.? Some aftermarket batterys, inexpensive replacements, do not play-well with your laptop. If you purchased from a computer store, return for a replacement. That said, It may be that it's not fully charged or need to be drained and charged, cycle it a few times. Some batteries have to go through a "learning" process. It says fully charged in windows software, right? again, some replacement batteries don't play-well with windows.Its a "pins" thing in the battery connector.

2000 dyna wide glide- just clicks when I try to start it. tried battery tender but it just flashes amber. Battery is newer(6months) basically in storage. When I turn it on the lights are bright?


Try cleaning the terminals and all the cables that go to it, if it still just clicks than you will find that your starter motor may need looking into.

The light on my Roomba flashes amber very quickly when plugged in directly with the adapter. what does this mean? it usually flashes slower when docked.


If Roomba senses that its battery has been significantly discharged, Roomba will enter a special 16-hour refresh charge cycle. When the 16-hour refresh charge is initiated, the CLEAN light will quickly pulse red/amber. Do not interrupt the cycle once it has begun. The 16-hour refresh charge cycle is initiated by the robot and cannot be started manually.
For long-term storage, always remove the battery from Roomba and store in a cool, dry place. Blue or black batteries should be stored after Roomba has been used. Yellow batteries should be stored after being fully charged.
Battery capacity reduces overtime and usually the battery will need to be replaced each year.

Toshiba SP 6100 Battery problem


If the charge light shows a blinking amber, then the battery is dead. If the charge light shows a solid amber, then it's charging.

Which is it?

Problem with extended battery


LED indicator for your laptop model
Steady Blue = Battery charged and AC adapter plugged in
Amber = Battery charging and AC adapter plugged in
Slow Amber Flash = <10% battery life
Fast amber flash = 3% remaining TPC will automatically go into hibernate
Slow flashing amber Adapter plugged in = Overheat condition

Do you have a multimeter to test the battery that you are using? check the output current of the battery.

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.

Flashing amber battery light


Sure, this just mean your are in charging mode, but your battery is at full charge. Should your battery need charging and in charging mode the lights would be green most likely.
