Have dell d610 battery light flashes 4 times red then one green, can't unplug

I would take note of the message you are getting and buy a new battery. I believe the red flashing lights mean that one or more of the cells in the battery are dying, and it's best not to turn off alarm lights like these. Did the battery hold charge for a longer period than one hour before you started to see the flashing light warning?

I bought a second battery (standby as I am going to Africa) for my Inspiron, charged it for about 10 hours until it indicated it is full. However, the power light has been flashing red since. Even when I...

Flashing red indicates that the battery is non-functioning (at the end of its ability to hold a charge), although as it is a new battery, this would seem a bit odd.
Did you buy the battery new or 2nd hand, was it a genuine Dell battery? My suspicions are that if this is an aftermarket battery and one which was not compatible with the dell, then there might have been some damage done to the laptop, causing the old battery not to charge. I'm assuming you are using a genuine Dell charger

Battery light on laptop keeps flashing red

Just from what you say I would try to use the Laptop without the battery. If the system works, I would suggest a new battery. It is possible that the charging circuit has failed but the only way to prove this is to fit a different battery. If the computer shuts off when unplugged then the battery is not charging. They only last about 2 years depending on how much it is used. Hope this helps.

Battery indicator flashing red when running on battery or on main supply and battery is 75% charged

When your battery indicator is flashing Red, it usually means that the charger is defective.

Dell also had a recall on some of its batteries. To see if you qualify for a free replacement click here:

If you want to reset your battery utility follow these steps:

1. Let the battery run completely dead. (Make sure all your work is saved)

2. Fully charge battery (You may still have flashing lights but if you turn your computer on and enter BIOS you can see the charge level)

3. Once again run battery dead.

4. Remove battery and wait 5-10 minutes.

5. Replace battery and use in normal operation.

Continuous alternating one green and three flashing red battery

note.gif NOTE: Battery operating time (the time the battery can hold a charge) decreases over time. Depending on how often the battery is used and the conditions under which it is used, you may need to purchase a new battery during the life of your computer. Check the battery status light — If the battery status light flashes orange or is a steady orange the battery charge is low or depleted. Connect the computer to an electrical outlet.
If the battery status light flashes green and orange, the battery is too hot to charge. Shut down the computer, disconnect the computer from the electrical outlet, and then let the battery and computer cool to room temperature.
If the battery status light rapidly flashes orange, the battery may be defective. Contact Dell _I found this on : Hope this helps and good luck. if i "fixed ya" please rate me. thanks-jmattes

Red Battery light flashes when computer is turned off

The reason the battery indicator would flash is because its reaching the end of its useable life. Meaning that it will become harder for the battery to keeps its charge until it finally doesn't keep a charge at all. best thing to do is when your not using your laptop unhook the charger to it so its not always charging the battery.

To fix the problem though you'll have to get another battery unfortunately.

Battery Charge light flashing 4 red one green Dell Inspiron 9200

usually, its an indication that the battery is nearing the end of its useful life. you can try to use another battery to isolate it further. If the same thing happens with another battery, chances are, the mobo is failing. Flashing the BIOS can usually help with battery issues. If another battery works fine and your computer is within its first year since you bought it, you can request a replacement battery from Dell
