Radio won't charge!

My HT1000 won't charge. All I get is a blinking red light on the charger base. It doesn't matter if the radio is on or off while on the charger, it still blinks red and does not charge it at all? Am I doing something wrong?

I don't know that I have your solution, but I do have a few troubleshooting tips.

Flashing typically means: your battery is possibly old, bad or is not making good contact. Clean your battery contacts with a pencil eraser to ensure they are making good contact with the charger. Also check your charger contact to see that they are free of debris. They can also be carefully cleaned with an eraser. (Do not use any type of solvents on either contacts.)

Second, check the date code on your battery. It is 3 or 4 digit number on the label. Batteries last approx. 18-24 months before starting to fail. Here is how to read the code: 835 would be 2008 the 35th week. If the battery is more than 2 years old, you should consider replacing it.

It is wise to have your radio turned off while on the charger. You can cause harm to the radio if you inadvertently press the PTT while the radio is on the charger. Plus, your radio will never fully charge if left on.

Charger will not charge radio, has red blinking light


If the radio will charge on one charger and not the other, the one with the blinking light is bad or has a dirty or defective battery contact. Check your charger for debris and clean your battery contacts with a pencil eraser and try charging again. If this fails, replace your charger.

Best regards.

Nyko charger won't charge


Had same problem with blinking lights and not charging.
Plug charger base in (blinking lights), remove controllers, and plug USB cable into front charge slot (behind hinged panel). This reset charger base and lights stopped blinking. As FYI - the USB was connected to other device (charging it). Add the controllers and correct charging lights show up - including the controller 1 and 2 symbols. Controllers now charging.

  • Couple things this could be.
  1. First thing is to make sure the radio is seated properly in the charger and that all the contacts are making contact and not dirty.
  2. The other thing this could be is that the battery is bad. Or in the least the capacity for the battery is extremely bad and not reliable.
  3. If the contacts look good and it's sitting on the charger proper than you will need to get another battery pack. Sorry.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

When I try to charge my batteries the red and green lights of my NTN1168A desktop charger flashes. I use the MTS2000 hand radio.


1) Hand oil can cause a film on your battery contacts. Clean your battery contacts on both the radio and the charger with a pencil eraser and try seating the radio/battery on the charger again. Be certain the radio is turned off.
2) It is possible your battery is too low to charge. A form of jump starting would be to let the battery set on the charger for more than 3 hours to see if the light problem clears.
3) It is possible you have a bad or shorted battery. Try another known good battery on the charger to see if the charger reacts correctly with a solid red light at the beginning of a normal charge cycle.

Best regards.

Will the light turn green on the ht1000 charger when the battery is charged? how long does it take?


It depends on the type of charger, a rapid-charger would charge a battery in one hour or less and the green light would come on when battery fully charged. A slow charger will take up to 16 hours to charge a battery and has red light only.

Problem charging


If you are referring to a flashing yellow light on the charging base, this is an error code. Either the 1) battery is bad, 2) not making good contact in the charger, or 3) very very low on charge. The solution for this set of problems is as follows: 1) have the company you purchased them from replace them, 2) clean your contacts with a pencil eraser, 3) leave the battery on the charger with the yellow light flashing for an hour or two. If the battery is just very low on a charge, it will come back to life and the light will change to be constant. If the battery is bad or shorted out, the light will continue to flash and you will need to get with the vendor you purchased the batteries from.

Other things which come to mind are compatibility issues such as you are using a different battery chemistry than you had before. NiCd batteries can charge on either of the two chargers available for the P110 (slow rate or fast rate). However, NiMH and Li-Ion batteries require a fast rate charger.

If you are referring to a yellow blinking light on the radio while it is in the charger. You need to shut your radio off. Radios should always be turned off when charging. If the radio is left on you will never have a full charge. Also, if you inadvertently press the PTT while the radio is turned on, while on a charger, you can cause damage to the radio.

FYI: There is no light to show "out of range" on the radio, unless you are possibly using a trunking or repeater system. A blinking light on your radio indicates the radio is turned on and/or there is traffic on your frequency. Your charger base light can be red, yellow or green. This indicates the charge cycle status. Flashing most always means some type of error.

Best regards

Red light flashing


It is either defective, or it has something touching one of the contacts causing a short. It would be best to replace the charger. Typically they are somewhat like a light bulb, they will burn out over time and need replaced.
