It could mean that the battery charge fuse is blown or the battery is not making a good connection and cannot charge.

What laptop brand and model is it? And where is the LED that blinks? Important details! Some laptops have a power light that blinks red while battery charges, then it turns steady green when battery is full. Some laptops have a red LED that lights whenever there is hard drive, CDrom, or floppy activity (read/write). This all depends on your laptop brand/model and where the LED is (side, near floppy/CD, top near screen, or on battery itself... so provide more details for me, please!

What does a orange power light mean


please see the commentary. God bless you

  • The majority of laptops will display a solid green, blue or purple battery light to indicate that the battery is fully charged. Most manufacturers indicate that a laptop is in the process of charging by displaying a solid or blinking green, orange, blue or purple light. If your battery indicator light is green, blue or purple, the battery is probably functional, regardless of whether the light is blinking. If the light is solid orange, the laptop is probably in the process of charging.

Battery Error Coneventions

  • Many battery manufacturers use rapidly blinking lights to indicate that a battery's charge level is low. In general, a laptop will rapidly blink orange or red when its charge drops below a certain level until the computer is plugged into a power outlet and charged. If your laptop's battery indicator continues to blink rapidly in orange or red or if it remains red even when it is plugged into the charger, it indicates a problem with your battery or the charger.

What does the blinking red ligh t mean below picture of battery


This usually means that your battery is not charging. Take the battery out and turn the computer on, plugged in only. Shut the computer down and then replace the battery. If the led light is still blinking red, it is time for a new battery. You can find a replacement battery on eBay for a reasonable price.

Dewalt battery charger won't charge


As you know, solid red on your charger means that the battery is fully charged and the BLINKING red light means the battery is charging. Unless the light is blinking irradically everything is working the way it is supposed to. If the light is blinking irradically, the battery may just be too hot or too cold to charge ( like when you are driving many lags and your battery dies) and in this case simply wait 15 minutes to charge. If you get a fast blinking light still, the problem probably is with the battery.

Sterts to go then kicks out a small red light blinking on meter


This is usually an indication that the batteries are kaput. When you have this situation, check the voltage on each battery. They should both read about 13 volts and no more than 14.5. If one or both are under 12, then they are shot.

CHARGING


Lulu1121 and guest, red means no charge and will remain red till its fully charge. Then it will turn to green. In fact, coby battery can be charge directly without the whole unit attached. But if on charge too long and still red, battery is dead, kaput, finish. some even show evidence when the casing is swollen...gel chemicals inside is swollen. The power supply that came with it is the only way you can use it...portability is out of the question.

Good Luck
