Hi, you can put the chuck in a tin/cup of oil, use penetrating,deisel, or as light as possable, also warming it up, keep trying weekly, or monthly, keep forwarding/reversing offten.
I have saved two, one was in a bucket of water for ages, its a "good one" now.

easy to fix
with the drill not running

grab the bottom part of the spinning part of the drill nearest the drill's motor.
grab the spinning shaft bit nearest the drill bit
pull them apart slightly

when the two parts are pushed together thay lock the chuck

I own a ryobi hammer drill that does the same thing

Try holding the bit in a vice and gently tap the chuck off of the bit and see it it releases the pressure on the jaws.

If i have this striaght two chargers and the green and yellow lights are on and the batterys will not charge and there 14.4v batterys correct . Then the batterys must be no good unless bolth chargers are bad and have the same problem witch is exterimly unlikely. most likely the batterys and are NG.They don't do well if left in cold condutions or hot for that matter but cold is worse . 14.4 V is is an unasul size and if its not a lithuim ion battery its going to be obisilete and unavaible soon if not already . Ihad the same problem with my RYOBI 7.2 volt can't get the batterys for under a 100 dollars thats one and a speical order i paid 39 dollars for the gun and 2 batterys . They make the money off resale on batterys . And you can do far better then RYOBI for a screw gun now a days

I believe the variable speed for the Ryobi is a variable resistor in the trigger area.

Completely dead batteries may cause the charger to not see any load and it wont charge them. The way around this is to put the battery on the charger with the charger unplugged. Then plug in the charger and check the lights. Keep unplugging and plugging in the charger till it catches up and stays on.
