    Check the charger. If it's not that I got:

    MH-G984HH : Rechargeable 9-volt NiMH battery. 250mAh capacity rating! (for transmitter)

    & three

    5N700AACW
    6.0 volt 700mAh SANYO Ni-Cd AA receiver pack. Made with 5 x N-700AAC cells.
    Choose shape, and choose wire leads or Connector.

    Options: FlatFutaba J
    Choose Pack Shape: Flat (side x side; "A" style) Choose Wire Leads or Connector: with Futaba J conn.

    from Batteries America

    This was for the old style BB, not Hawks.

    But I'm confused by the contradictory: "Works fine." and "Won't charge."

    The sound works the solenoids fire, it just won’t allow the battery in the unit to charge. I checked charger and battery in another unit and they work fine. There’s something going on with the charging system.

    Looks to be a loose charger port. I think it’s working now... indicator light is working anyway.
