Question about Ryobi Multi-Volt Battery Charger
This usually indicates that one or more of the rechargeable C batteries is not recharging. The batteries are standard rechargeable C batteries but the terminals are spot welded and are very hard to separate. There are 15 rechargeable C batteries in the Ryobi 18v battery pack. A battery tester will show which battery(s) needs replacing. There are refurbishing centers (Google search) but they will replace all the batteries and usually upgrade the OEM 1500 mah batteries with 2100 mah, or higher, batteries.

Hi, it is more likely your batteries are worn out, they don't last as long as the drill

Yellow and green lights: It is possible to FOOL THE CHARGER INTO icharging the 18V battery pack. You may get a few more uses out of the battery pack doing this, it is not a permanent fix.
This sounds a little crazy but it works. And sorry I don’t know why it works, but it does.
• Plug the charger in into the wall and insert the battery into the charger. You should have the notorious yellow and green light on.
• As quickly as you can unplug and plug in charger about five or six times in a row, faster the better, until the yellow and green go out and the red turns on. This may need to be repeated several times.
As I said, it works, I don’t know why, but it does.
