I have run RYOBI printing presses for the last 30 years and I bought a RYOBI rechargeable drill and rechargeable garden tool. I am disgusted by how cheap they were and how the batteries just gave up. I have heard about bumping a battery by running a good battery thru it. It was suppose recondition the battery, however I got two ruined battery for that.

is it a morse taper? if so lower the spindle and pry through a slot to remove the spindle. then identify if the chuck is held on with a bolt, threded or pressed in. if its a pressed fit here are chuck removal tools that look like wedges that remove the chuck from the rest of the spindle

Sounds like the brushes may be worn unevenly and one (or both) are jamming at an angle against the armature. They may need replacing.

You have to ask the store owner where you purchased it.

You must connect the battery with the charger separately in the main plug, when it flashes a red light, it's then busy charging and when it goes green after three to five hours of charging, then it's ready to be used. hope that will help.

Red when is when it's still busy charging, green shows when it's ready for use.

Have you try looking at a video on Youtube to show you how it's done?

Please check the LED status of your charger. If both of the charger'sLED flashing, but it can charge a good battery. Than the battery is defective, you may replace a new Ryobi P206 Battery http://www.batteryshops.co.uk/tags_products/ryobi-p206-12-18v-2-speed-drill-driver-battery_6854.html
