Works off mains and battery but wont charge battery.

Works off 240v mains ok, works off of battery ok, but will not charge, have tried 2 separate batteries and it just blinks fast to say batteries are dud, but they charge in my drill charger fine. Have checked both fuses inside on mains board and charger board, both ok.
What next ?

My dewalt says its chargeing the battery and it works when plugged in but wont work with the battery alone

I think it might be a dead battery. By that i mean one that no longer holds a charge, try using the battery in something else, if it works the battery must be good and that means that there is something wrong with the radio itself. It could possibly mean that there is a shorted circuit somewhere, and that i cannot help with.

Plugged it into 240v accidentally now will not work accept on battery

The fact that it still works on battery is a good sign.
As you do not report a loud bang and smoke, the failure of the mains power supply may not be catastrophic. If you can find a fuse, replace it and see if the unit works.
It is possible they have designed for this circumstance.

If not, ask your local service center.

The battery is fully charged. It works while connected to the mains, but if i turn it off and remove the power cord (so it works on the batteries) it won't turn on. However, it will turn on while connected...

Change the battery in it. It can be found online. It is easily accessed on the back of the radio, by unscrewing 2 philips screws. I had the same problem with mine, with an old battery. Once turned on, I could unplug it and it would play for 12-14 hours. Apparently the iPal needs a higher voltage when it turns on, so your old battery is not able to deliver that.

My Wharfedale DA_110E radio works on the mains but not the batteries. I have tested the batteries & they are OK. The battery connections look OK & are clean.

Try rubbing the battery connections with sand paper or a shap object. If this still fails, the battery laed my have come away from the circuit board inside the radio.

Radio works on mains but not battery

I take it the battery has life in it ? check the connections to where the battery makes contact on the radio, your battery contacts may not be connecting to the radio or they may need cleaning. Does the radio charge the battery still ?

My dewalt dw911 radio/charger works on either mains or battery but wont charge a battery and blows an internal fuse when both are used together

More than likely your internal charger is faulty. Inside your inernal charger unit check the 2 anmp fuse which is white in colour.
