Hi, I had the same problem!

Had not used my camera for a while so I decided to but my battery on charge, once in the charger the orange light just kept flashing so I left this in "flashing" for a good hour or so.

I removed it and then replaced it, and it was still flashing so I decided to get a new battery (£40!).


I put the new battery on charge over night and it charged great, so I thought I would re-try charging my old one before I sent it away for recycle, and guess what the orange light stopped ON and it was charging!

Not sure what happened here, it was either charge the old for an hour with light flashing and then remove and leave over night and re-try OR insert a good battery to re-set the charger?

But I now have 2 good batteries.

Hope this helps :)

SOURCE: when trying to charge my battery... the light

Battery problem. Well known problem with the NP-20 battery. It can be repaired by connecting it to ~4-4.5V 1-1.5A for about 5-10 seconds and then charged normally with the charger.
Of course a new battery will be better.

SOURCE: Battery charger light flash

Use the 9V as Ricckk suggested in Solution#2 and it works like a charm (make sure you hold the 9V against the casio battery for about 20secs with the the right polarize i.e. + with + and - with - ). As well as the phone number Dobetta gave in Solution #4. I now have a spare. Thanks Ricckk and Dobetta.

Red light flashing on charger


A red light indicates the charger is charging the battery, an amber light means it has switched from fast rate charging to trickle to keep the battery topped off, and green would mean the battery is completely charged. But don't be fooled waiting for green, many times the charger will only be on green for a moment before changing to amber and keeping the battery topped off.

Flashing can be a sign of a problem on some chargers.

A rapid flashing red can on some chargers indicate a bad or shorted battery, or a bad battery contact in the charger itself. If in question, try a different battery on the charger or compare with another charger to determine if the blinking is normal.

Best regards.

DW911 charge light flashes when no there is no battery in radio


Sometimes when a battery is too low it takes a while for it to initialize in a charger and begin to charge. Clean the battery contacts with a pencil eraser and put it back on the charger. Leave it on the charger despite the blinking light. Leave it on the charger for several hours and see if the flash stops and it becomes a constant light indicating normal charging. If this does not work, you may have a short in the battery or in the charger itself. Try another known good battery in the charger and see if you have the same problem. If so the charger has an issue.
Best regards.

Makita battery charger wont charge


If both lights on the charger are flashing it is indicating you have a bad battery and the charger will not charge the battery. The charger has circuitry that tests the battery and if it 'thinks' the battery is defective it will not attempt to charge it. The only way to verify whether it's the battery or charger is to try charging your battery on another charger or try charging another battery on your charger. Most of the time it's a bad battery.

My dc18ra makita battery charger flashes red and green lights no matter how many bateries i try


The pcb inside the battery has a microcontroller that monitor the charges and charge cycle. When the cell falls below a certain voltage, it will instruct the charger not to charge and will show with a red-green flashing light. If the battery has been tried 3 times in succession then the pcb will brick itself from the makita charger. So first replace the bad cells. There are 2 solutions at this moment: charge with a 3rd party lithium charger like the imax b6 or replace the pcb with a working one. check out my blog on http://mkbl1830.blogspot.com/

Yellow and green light are on but wont charge battery?


If both lights are on and both are flashing the charger is reading the battery as defective and the charger won't charge the battery. If the Red light (yellow if plastic is faded) is on and the green is flashing the charger is trying to charge the battery. If the battery won't charge replace it.

CHARGER PROBLEMS


The flashing light indicates the charger is charging the battery (or attempting it) and if it never finishes charging you should try to charge a different battery, if the charger charges that one ok then the battery is bad.

Batteries don't charge. I have a new battery, and neither of the old or new batteries work in the charger. I get flashing lights only, sometimes red, sometimes green, but in the end, the battery isn't...


Dust getting in the charger is a problem, Try blowing it out with a moisture-free dust remover, found at most any store. Green flashing means improper power, due to dust or power from the outlet, try a differant wall outlet. Red flashing means the charger or battery is to hot and must cool down before it will charge. The charger will not charge a battery if the lights are flashing. Solid Red light means it is charging and solid green light means it is charged. Plug the charger in first before putting the battery on the charger. If the charger has been droped or hit the floor the coil inside could have broke loose and dammaged the charger requiring it to be replaced.

I had this problem a few weeks ago (i.e. flashing red LED). All I did was remove the power plug from the charging unit, turned it around 180 degrees, then plugged it back into the charging unit. Red LED came on steady & the battery (which is the one that came with the camera) recharged as normal.
