Question about Ryobi Multi-Volt Battery Charger
RED AND GREEN LIGHTS FLASHING , BATTERY WONT ACCEPT CHARGE
Posted by Anonymous on
Try rotating the plug that goes into the wall. I know it sounds irrelevant but ive had the same issue and it worked for me. The positive and negative may be reversed in the dock.

Battery probably failed

My charger is flashing red & green without a battery in it. Does this mean my charger is bad and how do I get a replacement. I just purchased this and this is the first time I've tried to use it.

It sounds like your battery is bad. If yellow and green are on for more than 15 minutes it probably a defective battery pack. See page 8 in the manual.

I found out the probem is the battery, not the charger. The cells of the batteries build up corrosion on the terminals inside and won't charge any longer. There's a guy on ebay who sells a method of revitalizng the battery. I tried it, it works.

talked to Ryobi and they are vague. It can either mean that the battery is bad, or the charger is bad and another one that maybe the contacts of the battery are dirty or not seating fully in charger. What I would look for in this instance first unplug the charger and look into charging slot to make sure the terminals of the charger are not bent and they come out into the cavity where battery would go. If not gently pull terminal into opening and retry. Sorry I couldn't be of more assistance
