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.

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/

How to charge new battery in my laptop


as i do not know what laptop we are talking about here i asume its not a notebook
if it is the time is slightly lower (6-8 hours)
a normal lap top 10 - 12 hours.
some super batery laptops come with an own (long) guide how to keep the batery alive.

to keep the batery alive a long period of time charge it from 50% not when its at critical.

If u can take out the batery when you are using cable and its fully charged it also has a longer life time. or just take out the cable when its at 100% and recharge it when it gets to 50%

dont have your computer in the lap it can over heat the computer/batery and the lifte time gets even lower.

Pheonix plus batery flat,charged up,now it is mobile but all i have on dial is single red flashing led.


John the red flashing light indicates a low battery When you charge the battery your charger should be showing a red light for power and a yellow light. When the batteries are fully charged you should show a red and green light on the charger. Now if you have a voltmeter plug the leads into the two outter holes of the charger port located under the front of the joystick.Without the charger plugged in you will be reading the battery voltage. Fully charged it should read 27-30 volts if you are only reading 20-24 volts then the batteries are low. If you have an onboard charger plug it in and you should read the charger voltage of 29-32 + volts If you aren't getting that voltage then you have a bad charger if you are getting the charger voltage then you have bad batteries and they need to be replaced Hope this helps you

Battery won,t stay charged,after bike gets hot speedcontrol goes haywire and bike cuts off


There are several reasons why your batery does not charge at all:
1. Check in the magneto if the coil is burned.
2. Check the Rectifier Diode might be shorted or
opened.
3. Check your batery if it is still good.Sometimes we think that the problem is not in the charger ,but the baterry itself is too weak.
4. Check the fuse if it might be opened.
5. Check the batery line( Standard color of Red) if it is loosen or accedentally cut..

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 just got the same problem, it's just because the battery is so dead it needs time to re-charge. Just leave the phone plugged in for a while, it will eventually show up as charging :)

The 4 bars on the front of my lap top the third bar in keeps flashing red. does that mean I need a new battery even if it is on the outlet.


Sometimes it happens battery charging, If you can off the outlet and your lap top automatically off thats the time you will change your battery.
