Ryobi charger model # 140295003 has a red and yellow light. When charging red light is on what does the yellow light mean? Also how long should the battery be left in the charger?


Completely wrong. Quoting from the user's manual:

"The charge indicator light (LED), located on the charg- ing stand, will light up red and glow when the char- ger is properly connected to power supply. This light indicates the charger is operating properly. It will remain on until battery pack is removed from charging stand or charger is disconnected from power supply.

After normal usage, 3 hours or less of charging time is required to fully recharge battery pack.

If both red and orange LED indicators glow, the battery pack is deeply or completely discharged, and 6 hours or longer of charging time is required to fully recharge battery pack.

Note: If charger does not charge battery pack or orange LED continues to glow after more than 30 minutes of charging, return battery pack and charging assembly to your nearest Ryobi Authorized Service Center for electrical check."

So to summarize: red = charging. orange (yellow) = fully discharged battery. orange after 30 minutes - bad battery or bad charger.

Sidekick 3 charging problems


Ok, is the sidekick 3 brand new out of the box or new to you.

The sidekick 3 has an issue with the charging port being bad.

I would contact the person who you bought it from and get a refund.

The other option is to get an external battery charger and charge the battery that way

Sidekick ID


The sidekick ID has the same type of charging port as the sidekick 3, which are notorious for going bad. The easiset thing to do is get a charging cradle that has a spare battery slot.

Sidekick 3 Charger.


The Sidekick 3 is notorious for having the charging port go bad. New battery or charger doesn't help when this is the issue.

YOu can get it fixed for around 100 dollars or ou can get a charging cradle that has a spare battery charger. Since you have an extra battery it will work well for you. They are about 30 dollars from ebay.

Sad to say, this is a common problem with the sidekick 3.

The charging port probably has gone bad. If it is under warranty call t-mobile.

If not, you can have it repaired but it can be pricey.

A workaround is to buy a sidekick charging cradel with a spare battery charging slot. An extra battery makes this easier. This will allow you to charge your battery outside the phone.

Both will cost you about 40 dollars total on eBay.
