Either the charger is dead, or the battery is dead, or both are dead. You should take the charger to a dealer who has the batteries in stock and get everything checked. You may end up having to buy one or both.

The charger is using electronic sensing with a microcontroler. It is very difficult to simply check with a standard DVM. With the earlier generation of chargers we were able to do a simple check on these chargers.

Hi, as per your information your camera 2 years old but not used much. You buy a new battery 1st time when you charged you see the gree light. But camera not working. When you try to charge the battery again you seen the red light. Its mean your charger have a problem. So what you do now? Ok try these.
Remove the power connection of the charger. then fixed the battery there slowly & properly. After that plug on the charger again. If the same thing happens then unplug the charger & plug in in different point. Then see what showing. If again red light then wait 1 hours and waiting for green signal. If there is no green signal showing then visit a service center with your charger. Tell them your problem. They will fixed the charger for you. Don't worry your camera is ok.
Your new battery or your charger one of then damaged. Thanks & waiting for your feedback.

I have been charging my vivitar vivicam for probably over 24 hours and it still does'nt work.


Your problem is likely either the charger or a battery that's too worn out to take a charge. A constant red light on the charger indicates that the battery is charging, and a green light indicates that the charge is complete. If the green light never comes on, that's a good indication that the battery is beyond charging. If you have a voltmeter you can check the charger output and the battery voltage. Unfortunately your camera uses a special battery so there's no way to test the charger with another battery or to test the battery in another use. Replacing the battery, especially if it's more than a year old, is your best bet.

New battery. Charged for 24 hours. Light is green, but after 20 seconds light turns red and it stops.


There's a chance that the battery you bought is bad. There's a greater chance that the problem is with the charger. If you're using the dock to charge, try plugging the charger directly into the roomba just to rule that out. If that doesn't fix the problem, I would try borrowing or buying a new charger, and see if that works. If a new charger and new battery don't solve the problem, the problem must be with your roomba itself.

GP 360 Radio Charger


On a Motorola charger, when the battery is charging the light should be a constant red (or amber depending on the charger). When the charge cycle is complete the light will change to solid green. Sometimes the solid green time is brief, as the battery will begin to lose charge, and the charger will go back into trickle mode and change once again to red (or amber). In most cases, a flashing light indicates a problem, such as a bad or shorted battery, an incorrectly seated battery, dirty battery contacts, or a bad connection with the battery. (Note: Batteries last 18-24 months typically. Check your date code for the age of the battery.)

There were several chargers made for the GP360, including but not limited to a 60-minute charger, a 90-minute charger, a 10-hour trickle charger and a 6-unit gang charger which would be a rapid rate, either 60- or 90- minute. If you would supply your charger's model number we could tell you which one you have.

Not sure if this will help... however an altmeter will allow you to test along your electrics for any faults. You can check at the lights for example and throught the system.
