Charger lights flashing

Hi,

I have a Carson Expert charger lipo compact 1000mA. Everything was fine, but all of a sudden the 3 lights which are supposed to show if the battery is fully charged, started blinking between red and green light. What could this mean?

Thank you!

It did, but the maual does not say anything about the lights flashing, only that constant red lights mean its charging and constant green light means its fully charged or in standby (if no battery is connected)

I'm going to go with: ERROR.

Now you're probably going to ask "what error"? and... well, that's why we tend to recommend upgrading to a charger that has an LCD character display that can actually tell you things.

Do you have a cell checker or a DVM/DMM so you can check the battery? Just wild guessing, but a common newbie error is running a LIPO down so low that the charger won't attempt to recharge it for safety reasons.

I tried googling the charger - first link is to ebay germany, second link, page not found, third link - this thread! So another suggestion for the next charger would be something more common and documented.
