Bottom red LEDs blinking steadily.

Top green LEDs blinking a sequence: 3 rightmost LEDS blink at the same time, followed by 2 blinks of the first rightmost LED. Brief pause, then repeats.

View: I am a new user, cannot post the youtube link. However, you can go to the youtube site and tack this at the end of the URL: watch?v=068PyRQvbt0

As an engineer, I see the green LEDs blinking to be trying to say error code.

The code could be interpreted simply as 3 - 1 - 1.

A computer geek like me would say the LEDs are binary digits, represented as decimal 7 - 1 - 1.

Has anyone else seen anything like this, or have access to documentation that says what the green LED sequence means?

This last time I had to do multiple unplug/replug sequences to get charging again.


PS yeah the bungee holding the charger up could use replacing, I know...
