I had a bad charger that did the same thing as you described.

Seems like your batteries aren't charged. Could be worn out batteries or a broken charger.

i found a good deal on new batteries here on RTF last winter. Do a search if it's batteries, those might still be available.

charging light flashes when I hook up the charger. I have 3 units and the transmitter, they all charge but the one unit. I tried switching the charge leads around in case of a broken wire, didn't help. I'm going to a HT this weekend, I'm going to charge everything, swap batteries and see if the unit works.
I ordered the upgrade a year ago and hate to put more $ into something I will be sending back (some day ? )

Try charging the dead unit by itself. I had this problem once and this worked for me. After that it charged with multiple units on the charger. Don't know why this worked but BB told me to do it and it worked.
