Why is the green light blinking on the Ryobi charger with the battery in it
My Ryobi 18V One+ charger blinks green while it's charging. When the battery is fully charged, the LED goes to a solid green. However, one battery recently had a faulty cell. After several hours on the charger, the green and red LEDs both were blinking. That indicated that the battery failed late in the charging sequence. It didn't fail the initial testing by the charger. The other battery I charged that day charged fine.
The extended capacity batteries can take 12 hours to charge in my experience. The regular batteries take less time. The charge time will depend on the battery chemistry(The older NiCd batteries take longer to charge then the Lithium batteries.)
I hope this helps. Assuming you aren't dealing with a cold or hot battery or charging environment, if you have any suspicion about a faulty battery, replace it.
(Note: I have a 12V drill as well. Those batteries takes longer to charge for the same relative capacity than the 18V NiCd batteries.)

How to get stuck bit out of ryobi drill
These are self locking jaws and its done up too tight.
try undoing chuck by hand, then with a little more force wrap some cloth around chuck and try a pipe wrench around chuck.
make sure you turn the right way or you'll make it worse.
if no luck then take it to someone that works with tools and ask them to do it.

Lights dont light up on Ryobi charger
plug it in first, turn switch on, plug in battery.
if still no lights then battery or charger is faulty.
find someone with same gear and test, try other battery or other charger to work out which.
If still under warranty take back to where you bought it from.
