It means the battery is broke :( had the same problem with two of mine, i took them apart and found two damaged cells in both, so managed to make one out of two so to speck. Problem is the pcb is telling the charger the bat is broke, seems you only get 2 goes when it flashes red/green something i didnt know,
So if you do manage to fix/replace the cells you'll probably end up with the same problem i've got now!
I've looked about but no one seems to know or everyone is keeping it to thereselves, but im sure there must be away.
I'm not sure if this helps you but just saying wot will happen next if you replace the damaged cells there are 10 in total 4volts each
Good luck

SOURCE: when put on charge the green and red light flash

that usually indicates a bad battery. I would unplug the charger for a couple minutes to reset it and then try again before looking at replacing the battery. Most shops have a tester there that can tell if it is in fact bad.

AA battery recharger is flashing red


All I can see is that your charger is flashing red. There wasn't any brand mentioned. Most battery chargers flash green when in charging mode, solid green when charging is complete and flashing red when there is an issue with the battery/batteries being charged. Rechargeable batteries don't last forever (usually 200-300 charges) and perhaps this is the case with yours. Also, if you are using imported batteries (China), that would be a major red flag!

Why does the battery flash from red to green while charging?


If it changes from red to green and stays green while being charged, it is just a sign that it is being charged and there is nothing wrong.
If it flashes back and forth between red and green while charging, there might be something wrong with your charger's connection.

My charger is flashing red when i place the battery in it


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.

My glowbouy flashes green and red...what does this mean


According to the owners manual for these swimming pool lights, this is what each colored indicator means. Hope this helps.


Solid green
The battery pack is fully charged.
Slow flashing green
The battery pack is almost fully charged.
Slow flashing yellow
The battery pack is half charged.
Medium flashing yellow
The battery pack is less than half charged.
Fast flashing yellow
The battery pack has almost no charge.
Fast flashing red
A charging error has occurred and the light should be unplugged and then plugged back in. If the Fast Flashing Red persists after several attempts, the battery condition is questionable.



Also in the trouble shooting guide, it mentions this:


Problem: Red Indicator Light Is Flashing While Charging

Solution:
A red flashing indicator light when charging indicates a selftest
error condition. Unplug the product and plug it in again.
Try this several times; if the indicator light continues to flash
red, unplug the GlowBuoy and take it to an authorized service
depot.

  • Flashing red light: Battery needs charging.
  • Flashing green light: The music receiver is switched on.
  • Flashing red/green light: The music receiver is available to be added to your phone.

Treo 680 charging light flashes red when disconnected from charger


Have you activated phone yet? When phone is activated and in service it flashes green. It's hard to believe it would flash green without a SIM card, as there is no service...unless AT&T is providing emergency service only and you're getting a flashing green which means you're in range of their towers.

No 'green' light on bacl of my 'old' Vivitar 285


Then I'd say it's a reasonably sure thing that the green light is just burned out, The lights are supposed to be off at first, then red when there's a partial charge, then green when there's a full charge, then flashing between red and green when the "battery saver" kicks in. If you're seeing off, then red, then off, then flashing red, then that means everything in the charging circuit is working perfectly, there's just no green light.
