There are chargers on the market that can "reformat" old batteries. this can be way for you. Or take them to some shop specialized for refurbishing batteries. Juraj

unless it it is a broken wire (common) nothing to do but replace the charger. Fixing wire may also be difficult.

You did not say what kind of battery they are. Most lithium batteries will die if they go lower than a certain voltage. Going to zero volts will do that. That can happen when you leave the drill in the garage, where its not only hot which is not good, but not using the battery for long times it will drop in voltage until it stops working altogether. There are ways to try and repair the batteries but it is a dangerous thing to do if you do not understand. I can't share that with you because it can be dangerous. You may need to search Ebay for a new battery, and be sure to keep it charged and out of the heat of a garage. The battery charger should not indicate that the batteries charged, it should indicate and error. So your question did not give enough details for me to give you anymore information.

My Bosch were great drills but the batteries were not. They died pretty fast and eventually wouldn't hold a charge. I assume since you say DRILLS in the plural that none of your drills are working and I would suspect the batteries and not the drill when you are talking about more than one drill dying at a time.

There should be two brush holder screws, one on each side. Unscrew them and pull the brushes out. Replace them with new brushes, screw in the brush holder screws.

The problem is resistor R3 on the circuit board.
Since there is 310 Volts (!) across this resistor, I would highly recommend taking it to a TV repair shop for repair unless you know exactly what you are doing and have the skills for repairing a PC board. Take this email with you when you go there.
Be sure !!! to discharge the two large capacitors with a 10K resistor before attempting this repair - for days they will retain 165 Volts each across them after the power plug is pulled.
The repair is easy - simply replace the resistor R3 with two 130K metal film 1/2Watt resistors in series. The existing resistor is marginally power rated and there is too much potential difference across it for safety. Make sure the two replacement resistors are enclosed in a heat-shrink tube before soldering onto the board.

Take the battery off and look under there for the sticker with serial number on it :-)

Refer to your manual - most hammer drills have one or two switch settings to turn the hammer function on or off.

I would put the drill in reverse and hold the "chuck" and very slowly and carefully press the trigger lightly. This should bring the clamping device back where you can see it.

i think thats the circuit board. probably can get a new board at

Bosch Drills | Answered on Oct 21, 2018

that's very strange. It could be that the brushes aren't perfectly lined up, I would double check that.

A ball bearing problem or broken piston drive rod ( its modificated by 1607000C3P) also best is to service with maintenance kit 1617000702
