Ryobi Drills - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

Hi, Thanks for getting back to me. The yellow and blinking red indicate a defective cell. Since it has lithium cells and is that new any repair to it would be a waste of your time. Ryobi tools purchased in 2008 have a 2 year warranty. I am guessing you probably got it at a home depot and you should return it under the warranty. All new Ryobi tools have a three year warranty. Good Luck! and Thanks for using fixya!

No its strickly a jump starter not a trickle charger.. you can buy a small power supply in the 250ma range and make a cheap trickle charger.

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.

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.

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
