20 Most Recent Ryobi Multi-Volt Battery Charger - Page 7 Questions & Answers


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

Here is the manual:

Red = quick charge
yellow = evaluating
green = charged

CHARGING A COOL BATTERY PACK
If battery pack is within normal temperature range, the red LED on charger will come on.

Red LED should remain on for approximately 1 hour then the green LED will come on. Green LED on indicates battery pack is fully charged and charger is in maintenance charge mode.

If both yellow and green LEDs come on, this indicates
a deeply discharged or defective battery pack.
Allow the battery pack to remain in the charger for 15
to 30 minutes. When the battery pack reaches normal
voltage range, the red LED should come on. If the
red LED does not come on after 30 minutes, this may
indicate a defective battery pack and should be
replaced.
n After normal usage, a minimum of 1 hour of charging time
is required to fully recharge battery pack.

It sounds like your battery is bad.

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.

battre round the wrong way?

Ryobi Multi-Volt... | Answered on Oct 24, 2009


If it's not charging and your batteries are still good then more than likely the unit is shot. You can try cleaning the contacts on the unit and your batteries and see if that helps.If you know someone with a universal charger try your batteries on that to make sure it's not them that's the problem. Check ebay for a used one at a cheap price. This is not a fix you can do unless your a techie and it's not worth sending off to Ryobi for a factory fix. i just replaced my panasonic charger for the same reason, but i had it for 10 years.

How did this happen? Did you jimmy the plug???

There is the possibility there is a fuse inside. If so, it blew when you plugged the charger in.

If not, you probably smoked it.

It may be better to replace it.

see you local ryobi dealer as this can be 2 different faults in the same unit.

Ryobi Multi-Volt... | Answered on Sep 20, 2009


your batteries have possibly developed a memory and are probably shot or it may be the charger local toolstore should be able to test them both.Which ever one is bad it will cost more to buy a charger and battery than it will to buy a new drill .whatever you do ask the shop people how to stop the battery from developing a memory or if you want to come back to me when you have them fixed up I will be happy to tell you.please let us know how you get on ,thankyou

If it is out of warranty open it up and check the fuse inside. This has happened to me several times with several brands, and it has always been the fuse. They are usually replaceable at Radio Shack or the Auto Parts Store.

Hope this helps!

Batteries retain a memory. If you only drain the battery half way and than recharge all the time it will only keep half a charge. Try running it all the way down and than recharge it, this can take some time. Let it run till it gets very very slow and almost stops, but don't go past where it stops or it will not take a new charge at all. It does not always work, but worth a try before buying a new one. Good Luck
