Blinking red light with battery icon means that you are running out of battery power. if the computer is plugged in to the wall and it still does the same thing you may have to replace the ac adapter or charger. the charger should have a green light on it to indicate it is getting power.

Green light goes on when I turn camera on, but 3 red lights flash when I shoot & nothing happens. I tried changing multiple batteries, all alkaline. No luck yet. Any ideas?


The 3 flashing red lights indicate low battery power! This could be because of low battery power (all 4 batteries must be good), the battery contacts in the camera are poor, the make of battery being used (try different make of battery)

The blue power light and the blue and red battery lights keep flashing and won't stop Why?


Sounds like the battery itself is going bad and needs to be replaced. The blinking lights are a code that you can find at the OEM website and it will tell you exactly what is going on..

My nextbook 8 has a red flashing light and wont power on even after charging


Try taking out the battery and try turning it on with it plugged in. If it works, you need a new battery.

Compac d-530 won't start red light under power button flashing


Take out the battery and only hook up the AC Adapter. Try turning on your laptop and if you still only get a flashing power button then try another AC Adapter. If the same thing happens then that means the motherboard is bad and would need to be replaced.

Bluetooth wont charge or power on. when charging the red light comes on. once disconnected from charger it wont come on


Indicator Lights:
1.Headset Status Headset Indicator Light
2.Powering on Steady blue, then intermittent flashes
(changes to standby mode)
3.Powering off Red appears and goes off
4.Standby Blue intermittent flashes
5.Charging battery Red solid light. Light indicator turns off when
battery is fully charged and headset is off.
6.Low battery Triple red flashes
7.Pairing mode Blue/red alternating flashes
8.Missed call Purple flashes. Press the call control button
to cancel flashing light.
9.Incoming call Triple blue flashes when ringing.
Power on and off:
1.Turn on the headset Press and hold the call control button until the
indicator glows blue. You will hear ascending
tones.
2.Turn off the headset Press and hold the call control button until the
indicator glows red. You will hear descending
tones. When power is off, indicator stays off.
If none of this is helpful then it may be that your battery is dead, if that is the case then you will need to replace the whole headset. The battery's are not replaceable.

Good luck from Headsets Direct!

It wont power on & has a red flashing light


2 things, first bad battery, sometimes bad battery works for few minutes then your phone just dies on you, it says its fully charged but it aint. That red light flashing only means that your phone has LOW BATTERY. 2nd your phone software has problem. If you have another ericsson that uses the same battery you can check it the battery is ok, its the only way you can find out if the battery is good. If the battery is doing ok with another cellphone then your cellphone software has problem.
