If the charger detects a weak or damaged battery, the charging indicator (24) will flash red at a fast rate.
Proceed as follows:
- Re-insert the battery (22).
- If the charging indicators continues flashing red at a fast rate, use a different battery to determine if the charging process works properly.
- If the replaced battery charges correctly, the original battery is defective and should be returned to a service centre for recycling.
- If the new battery gives the same indication as the original battery, take the charger to be tested at an Authorised Service Agent. You can find your nearest agent here or if you are in the Republic of Ireland, click here.
Note: It may take as long as 30 minutes to determine that the battery is defective. If the battery is too hot or too cold, the LED will alternately blink red, fast and slow, one flash at each speed and repeat.
Should you require a new charger, these can also be purchased through the Authorised Service Agents.
