Sometimes the contacts between the battery and the iRobot get corroded...you can try using a small piece of sandpaper to lightly scuff/clean the battery contacts. Once you put it back together, try the reset function mentioned previously.
Here's a guide;
What do the battery lights mean on my mouse?
Some keyboard and mouse models feature a battery light that shows the current status of the batteries. The following table describes the different lights and states.
Single long green blink
Batteries are good. This occurs when batteries are first installed or every time that the device is turned on.
Slow green blink
Device is docked in the charging station and is charging properly.
Device is docked in the charging station and does not need additional charging.
Presenter Mouse (Japanese version)
Laser pointer is on.
Device is discoverable (trying to connect to the transceiver).
Slow red blink
Batteries are low and need to be replaced.
Slow red blink
Batteries are low and need recharging.
Fast red blink
Device is docked in the charging station, but there is a charging error. Reasons for errors: The wrong type of battery is installed; the battery or batteries are missing; or the battery connection is bad. Solutions: Make sure that the correct battery or batteries are installed, and are installed correctly. If necessary, remove the batteries, wipe them with a clean cloth, and reinsert them.
Presenter Mouse (Standard version)
Laser pointer is on.
My charger blinks red and green but I've literally only used my chainsaw 4 times. It's less than a year old. It won't charge the battery. What could be the issue? Or can I take it back to home Depot and use the warranty? Any help will be welcome.
Make sure that when charging the battery pack it must be attached to a
wii-mote otherwise this may cause a flashing red light.
If the battery pack is attached to the wii-mote and you still have a flashing red light this may indicate that there could a problem with the battery pack itself.
Ridgid charger lights read as follows: Solid red; charger has power. Flashing red; charger is evaluating the battery, checking if it's cool enough to charge and if it is in chargeable condition. If the battery is hot, i.e. just came off the tool after extended use, it won't charge the battery until it cools down. Flashing red & green; the battery is defective and the charger will not charge it. Solid red & flashing green; battery is charging. Solid green; battery is full.
I had the same problem with flashing red light on my charging dock (within 10 sec after 2nd green light came on). I did fix it. There is a rust brown securing tab that holds the battery in place. Mine must have a broken spring..... So, I put the battery into my camera, pushed securing tab over the battery and then wedged a toothpick tip to keep battery tab in place. Once back on the charger, I had no more flashing red light. The battery is charging correctly. The problem was that the battery was not held down into place correctly. I now just have to unwedge the toothpick tip to remove the battery...but not really an issue at all as I keep the battery in there all the time. Very easy fix!!!
Others suggested to reseat the plastic dock. But mine was secure. Somewhere there is not a good battery connection that is causing the red flashing light. I am thankful to figure it out. Hope this helps you.
I had the same problem. I needed to take the clear plastic insert off but then I had to put a rubber band around the dock and camera (more on the left of the camera and dock) to hold it evenly on there since the camera was leaning on the right and wasn't charging for me. Now it charges as soon as I put it on there with the rubber band with no blinking red light anymore! Hope this helps!
It's a problem with the battery. It already reached it's life cycle. I had the same problem with my 15 month old casio camera a year ago - flashing red light on docking station. I even tried borrowing a docking station/charger to see if something else is wrong with it.
The only solution for this is to have the battery replace.
There are 4 reasons why your unit is behaving this way: 1. Charger is the problem. 2. The docking station is the broken. 3. The battery is broken or not accepting charge. 4. The actual unit is the problem. It is very hard to tell which one is causing this to happen. Let us do some troubleshooting first: 1. Plug your charger in an A/C outlet and make sure the red power light (left) is lit, otherwise the charger or the docking station is broken. 2. You can test the charger with a multimeter. Unplug the charger from the docking station and measure the voltage across the outside and inside, it should register more than 5 volts DC. If there is a 5Volt DC the docking station is the problem otherwise the charger is broken. 3. If the red power light is lit and the status light (right) is lit too, your docking station is broken. 4. If the red power light is lit, dock the unit into the charger, the status light (left) should turn red when your battery is accepting charge or turn blue when your battery is fully charged. 5. If the status light will not lit at all (while the red power light is on), tap the screen while the unit is docked on the charger. If the unit will become alive, you need a new battery otherwise you need a new unit.
12 hours is very long time to charge, the status light should turn to blue in less than 2 hours especially for a new battery.
What you can do is call their tech support department and they should be able to replace the battery for you. Tech support will take your information and request you to send in your battery before they replace it.
