Most likely the rechargeable battery needs to be replaced.
Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find a battery pack listed anywhere. You'll probably have to have a company like Batteries + Bulbs (In the USA) take it apart and replace the battery pack.
The battery is probably no longer rechargeable due to age or to the number of times it has been recharged. If the battery can not be replaced, then the entire vacuum needs to be replaced with a new one.
Normally a battery flashing is an indication that the battery either needs to be replaced or is low and needs to be recharged (if it's rechargeable)
Bear in mind that rechargeable batteries, such as those used in the robot-controlled vacuums do not have an infinite life. There will come a time when it will no longer take (or hold) a charge and have to be replaced. If this is your situation, take the vacuum (along with the charging station) over to a place called "BATTERIES PLUS BULBS" (there are stores all over the US) - these guys can very often rebuild the battery pack for less than half the cost of replacing it.
I have the same problem with this type of vacum. I have tried a lot of things but the problem is with the software included in a 20 pins chip on the pcb so it can not be repaired. But, if you look in the back of the vacum there is a rubber stopper wich hides 2 pins. Maybe those pins can be used to reset the vacums pcb. I really dont know because in can't test it any more. I solved my vacum bypassing the vacum mainboard (pcb). Now my internal battery is directly connected to the 2 motors using a simple switch to powering on and off. The original pcb is conected only to the batery, recharghing wires and led wires so i can recharge the batery as usual. Sorry for my english, hope you understanded what i was trying to explain. good luck
Let me say this; The battery replacement for the Electrolux is not a owner level replacement procedure. However, you can replace the 4 original EMX1600sS batteries . The battery model is Tenergy 2/3A Size Rechargeable Battery 1.2V 1600mAh NiMH W/ Tabs Those are a little smaller than the originals but with the same capacity of 1600mAh and can be easily found in the web. Anything under those specs should work. These types of battery's will cost about $15.00 on the web. The battery's are in the hand held unit bottom or back side area, you access them by taking out all the screws in the back side of the hand unit.
hi right to be honest both ways are correct, but if your using it every day then its best to put it back on the charger after every use, but the problem with this is that the battery never goes totally flat, so never does a full recharge this reduces the life of the battery by upto 50% so if you are using it regular and need it charged daily then its best to once a month let the battery go totally flat so that it wont even make a sound then do a full recharge. Doing this will ensure the battery remains at peak performance and make it last longer.
If how ever your only using it say once a week then its best to only charge after the battery has gone flat due to the fact that it would remain on charge longer and cause the battery to over heat reducing the life span of the battery.
But witch ever method you use always let the battery go totally flat once a month then do full recharge this will prolong the life of the battery and ensure it keeps working at full power.
Battery needs to be replaced. All rechargeable batteries have limited recharge cycles. NiCad's are usually used in these and also develop "memory' which keeps them from recharging fully.
Contact Oreck or reputable dealer for replacement.

I need to replace the rechargeable battery. Is there a dealer near Bartlett, TN that can do that or would I be able to do it myself if I bought a new battery? Hello, I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. The only place that I know if to contact the Royal factory cust serv line listed below or to check the website and they may direct you to a local dealer in your area. All you would need is a new rechargeable battery and you can do it yourself. The problem that I see is that the new rechargeable battery may cost as much as a new vacuum if you consider the part plus shipping and handling. So, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions. http://royalvacuums.com/Customer Service 1-800-321-1134 Hours are: 8:00 AM to 7:00 PM(EST) Thanks, Don the Vac Man Go Ahead.
