32 blinks it's a lock status that cannot be reversed by placing the battery in the charger. It's triggered by the unbalance voltage between the cells. The battery design does not implement balancing so they are sort of destined to fail by the 32 red light blinks.
If the cells are still good, there is a method to reset the lock status. One needs to open the pack, balance the cells manually and then re-start the pack.

Hope it helps

    I have a Dyson v6 animal handheld and It will not turn in. The indicator light flashes blue one time and then flashes red one time. I’ve searched and searched for a solution but can not seem to find any...

    First check it is fully charged. Secondly, Try checking all the pipes, tubes and attachments for blockages. Basically take it to bits and clean it. Dyson have a 'cut out' feature fitted to stop you burning out the motor when it's blocked up.

    My Dyson v8 Absolute has both blue lights on and only holds charge for approx 1 min or so.

    Whilst the battery should flash Red if the battery is faulty, 50% of the time it doesn’t. I can 99% Guarantee you that you need to replace the battery.

    I have a new Dyson V8 Absolute When I try to charge it nothing happens. When I pull the trigger I have one flashing blue light. HELP

    not trying to be a smart a** but which of the two do you have?
    1. A flashing blue light indicates that the battery is running low on charge.
    2. A fast flashing blue light indicates no power or a temporary fault (e.g. check filter or for blockages).

    FYI....A solid blue light indicates that the battery is charging. No light indicates the battery is fully charged. A solid amber light indicates that the battery is not charging due to a temporary fault (e.g. too hot/cold). A flashing red light indicates that there is a fault, call the Dyson Helpline.
    Best to you.

    My Dyson V6 absolute is pulsating when I pull the trigger. I have cleaned the canister and checked for obstructions. I also cleaned the top filter.

    Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

    There are a number of reasons why your Dyson cleaner is pulsating off and on. First, it maybe due to a battery of the unit. Make sure that the power cable is properly plug to the power and seated properly from the unit while charging. If you find that the battery isn't charging at all, you may need to replace the battery. Second is to check the MAX button of your cleaner. If the button lights up and flashes when your Dyson keeps on pulsating, press and hold the power button and depress the MAX button to turn off the function. You may need to do it for a few times to get the hang of it. Third is to check for any blockages or clogs in the attachments. Look down through the tube and check to see if there are clogs on the sweeper end or if the roller is tangled up in fibers. Clean the roller brush are if it it's necessary. You may need to empty the dust bin of your unit as debris can build up in hard to reach places. Lastly, cleaning the filters may fix the pulsating of your cleaner. Remove the filter and rinse it with cold water and air dry it for 12 hours. Don't use detergent when washing your filters. If the pulsating doesn't go with the given quick fix, I suggest to contact Dyson for further assistance on this.

    Dyson v6: It looks like it stopped charging.

    If it's only 2 weeks old, you could have a defective either charging system or just a bad battery. Most places offer free replacement within 30 days of purchase. I would take it back to your place of original purchase. I hope that helps!

    I can't the the max mode to turn off. How do I fix this?

    Hi Kayla, it's Jack at Dyson.

    To switch between Max mode and regular mode, first hold down the red on/off trigger, so the vacuum is running. Then at the same time, press and release the Max button on the rear of the machine. The machine is designed in this way to make Max button can't be activated accidentally. When running in Max mode, the button will light up.
