Switch off power completely , remove the battery and re-insert the battery completely locking it into its place and then connect the Eliminator - if the status light is steady and indicates its charging your problem is resolved else change the battery.

Battery failure indications


Following are a few reasons that indicates a battery failure:
  • The usable time after recharging is shortened.
  • The battery becomes unusually warm during a recharge cycle.
  • The battery becomes unusually warm during phone use.
  • The battery case often is swollen. This is detectable by feeling and viewing the inside/phone-side of the battery case. Also, when the battery is placed inside/phone-side down on a flat, smooth surface, it will rock and will sustain a spin motion. The case of a healthy battery is flat and will not sustain a spin motion.
  • The battery develops a hard spot. This is detectable on the inside/phone-side surface of the battery by gently pinching about the surface between one's fingers.

Samsung SL202 Flashing Yellow Light

Is your Samsung SL202 flashing a yellow light and not charging its battery?

This is an indication that your camera has decided it needs to completely discharge its battery before the charge cycle begins it again.

Rechargeable batteries last longer and perform better when they are completely discharged before being recharged. This is normal.

I hope that helps.

Try and push and hold the on button for about 3 sec. This will start a manual battery test. If only three of the five battery led illuminate allow the ups to recharge the batteries for 24 hours. Battery light flashing means internal battery source not available. Check battery connection, completely power down and reboot UPS

Why does the battery light keep flashing?


The battery is failing to recharge itself.
Contact Dell -- a battery should last longer than that.

I've a dell inspiron 1521 battery problem


The battery has an internal failure (Most likely a bad cell) While the battery works, the resolution for the LED indication is to replace the battery. Batteries are a consumable item and generally, batteries have a life of 300 to 500 recharge/discharge cycles before replacement is necessary.

Battery Light Flashes Orange and Green


The LED sequence indicates a failure in the battery. (Like one cell has low charge) As long as the overall battery output meets the minimum for system operation, the battery will work.

The average lifespan for a Portable battery is about 500 discharge/recharge cycles (1 to 2 years) anything after that is a bonus

Replace the battery, issue will go away
