Blinking can be a sign of an old or shorted battery, dirty contacts, poor connection with the charger, or a battery that has been drained too low.
First, clean your battery contacts on the radio, battery and charger with a pencil eraser. Try again to charge the battery. (Be certain the radio is turned off while on the charger.)
If this does not solve the problem, try a known good battery from another radio and see if swapping batteries solves the problem. If so, replace your batteries.
If the charger blinks no matter which radio you place on the charger, you may have a problem with one of the charge contacts in the charging tray itself. Once again, process of elimination will determine which one is the culprit. Then replace the bad charger.
The batteries will have a 2 year life expectancy, and there is a date code on the battery. It is either a 3- or 4-digit number. First number of a 3-digit code is the year, followed by the week of the year. Example 324 would be 2013 the 24th week. Four digit codes are similar except the first two numbers are the year, example 1324 would be 2013 the 24th week.
Best regards.

I don't know that I have your solution, but I do have a few troubleshooting tips.

Flashing typically means: your battery is possibly old, bad or is not making good contact. Clean your battery contacts with a pencil eraser to ensure they are making good contact with the charger. Also check your charger contact to see that they are free of debris. They can also be carefully cleaned with an eraser. (Do not use any type of solvents on either contacts.)

Second, check the date code on your battery. It is 3 or 4 digit number on the label. Batteries last approx. 18-24 months before starting to fail. Here is how to read the code: 835 would be 2008 the 35th week. If the battery is more than 2 years old, you should consider replacing it.

It is wise to have your radio turned off while on the charger. You can cause harm to the radio if you inadvertently press the PTT while the radio is on the charger. Plus, your radio will never fully charge if left on.

NIKON MH26 BATTERY CHARGER BLINKING GREEN LIGHTS


A blinking green light means the charger is charging the battery. A steady green light (same LED) means that charging is complete. If the light never stops blinking and we assume that your charger is working correctly, you may have a defective battery. Rechargeable batteries do not last forever. After a few years, there ability to take and hold a charge declines. It may be time to buy a new battery.

hi, if the blinking light never stops blinking that can imply a fault with the charger but first make sure the connections to the batteries are clean and tight.

Battery charging


Usually when the light on the charger either changes from red to green, or some chargers have a blinking light, when it stops blinking. I have seen chargers which also had a light which would turn off when the battery is charged.

Charger blinks while charging, stops when batteries are fully charged.
New batteries may not be charged from factory. Let them charge overnite and see if it stops blinking.
