SOURCE: charger not charging

Just was on a website for Ryobi drills and it states that if the yellow and green light stay on for more than 15 minutes the battery is fried. Couldn't find the link but if you do a search for Ryobi Drill 18 volt you should find the same info. It was as product review from Australia I think.

I also have a problem with the charging of Ryobi batterys. They seem to charge AOK with the green light coming on but the charge does not last at all. Not sure if the problem is with the batteries on the charger.

SOURCE: batt light flashes 4 red and 1 green over and over vostros laptop

Hi there. If your battery light is flashing 4 red and one green on the battery light indicator (as in the one next to the power and hdd led), then this is an indication that your battery is nearing the end of it's life, and it's time to get a new one. It will last a bit longer, depending on how much you use your laptop, but there will come a time when it won't work at all.

When I plug it in to charge the blue charging light comes on for 2 or 3 minutes then goes out and charging stops. Have I blown the charger by constantly leaving it plugged in? Please help!

Hi Alvina, it's Jack at Dyson.

DC59 will display a blue indicator light at the base of the hand grip while the machine is taking in power. The light will go out when the machine is fully charged. DC59 will take 3.5 hours to charge fully when the charge is completely depleted, but it will take less time than this if there is still some charge remaining on the battery after use.

Please note, the machine's intelligent control software is designed to ensure the battery only takes in enough power to recharge, and to keep itself topped up. It's safe to leave the machine connected to the charger at all times when not in use - the machine is designed to be stored in this way, so it's always ready to go when you need it.

From the information you've provided, I'm not clear on whether or not you're finding your DC59 works as normal once the blue charging light goes out, or whether it's not working at all. To make sure everything is correct, please get in touch with our experts directly. We'll be happy to talk you through some simple diagnostic checks when you have your machine easily to hand.

You can reach the Dyson Customer Helpline by calling 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) 1800 239 766 (AU), or 0800 298 0298 (UK).

We'll look forward to speaking with you.

Flashing red light on Morphy Richards 732000 Supervac

If it is supposed to go green then the battery is not being fully charged. Unit is under warranty and now is the time to have matter addressed.

Why isn't it charging?

Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

I'm sorry to hear your DC59 doesn't seem to be charging. If you're recharging your machine in the docking station, make sure the end of the charger cord is correctly and firmly inserted into position. If the charger cord is not correctly installed, it may not be making effective contact with the machine. In normal use, DC59 should recharge from depleted within 3.5 hours.

If you're plugging the charger cord directly into the machine and have continued to experience this issue, please get in touch with the Dyson Customer Helpline directly when you have your machine to hand. Our experts will be happy to talk you through some simple diagnostic checks - and if a replacement part is needed, they can confirm if this is covered under your Dyson warranty.

You can reach us by calling 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).

How do i know the dc59 needs charging

Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

The Dyson DC59 cordless vacuum has two LED indicator lights on either side of the handgrip, which you'll see where the battery attaches to the handgrip. These will flash to let you know when there's less than 1 minute of charge remaining.


Once the charge has depleted, the machine will shut off - the power won't trail away gradually as with some cordless products.

If your DC59 is making an intermittent pulsing noise when you hold down the on/off trigger, this is likely to be because a blockage in the motorised floor tool, wand or bin inlet is preventing airflow passing through the vacuum. If this is the case, please follow the steps shown in the video below to clear any obstructions:

When I try to use my Dyson DC59 it won't start and blue lights on both sides of the battery start blinking. What does this mean?

Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

From what you've described, it sounds as if you may be using your DC59 set to Boost mode. This will provide 6 minutes of highest suction for really stubborn dirt, but for regular vacuuming normal mode should work effectively.

To switch back to normal mode, ensure your machine is fully charged (this will take a maximum of 3.5 hours), then hold down the on/off trigger, and at the same time, press the illuminated Boost button on the rear of the machine.

My dc59 doesnt work green light flashes when you press start button

Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.

A green light flashing when you try to use your DC59 could mean the battery has no power. If you're confident it's been allowed to charge for at least 3.5 hours, it's possible that the charger cord isn't connecting correctly with the machine itself, so no power is reaching the battery. This is more likely to occur if you're recharging the machine in the docking station, and the charger cord isn't correctly positioned.

We're happy to help you check for and resolve this - if a replacement part is needed we can also confirm if this is covered under our 2-year parts and labour guarantee. When you have your machine to hand, please give our experts a call on 0800 298 0298 (UK), 1-866-693-9766 (US), 1-877-397-6622 (CA) or 1800 239 766 (AU).
