Stupid manual!

First off, I never read product manuals, infact I usually throw them away, but I was trying to charge one of my camcorder batteries just a minute ago, and the charge light on the battery charger started blinking. I was like "what is this crap"? Dreadingly I pulled out the manual and looked it up. All the retarded manual said was:

"Charging is not possible. Remove the Battery once, wait a short time, then re-attach it for charging."

Wow, great explanation!

Strange. With my DVL9500 batteries, it blinks when they're charging; when they're done, the light stays on but don't flash.

Thats a JVC though, this is a Mats**tsa.

Theres 2 lights on mine, red for power, and the green one, which stays on if the battery is charging, blinks if theres a "problem" and goes off when its done.

JVC is "a Mats**tsa" as well. So's RCA, etc.

Is your battery dying? These batteries are only good for about 200 charges, probably less.

My XL1s charger blinks too. It's a good idea NOT to through away the manual. Sometimes they don't make sense, but then again they have bailed me out more than once.
