Checking Operational Charging:
Perform operational charging. If the battery status indicator does not turn on, remove the battery pack and let it return to room temperature. Reinstall the battery pack.
If the charge indicator still does not turn on, replace the battery pack. If the charge indicator still does not turn on, replace the System board. Then reinstall the battery pack. If the reinstalled battery pack is not charged, go to the next section.
Checking the Battery Pack:
Battery charging will not start until the Fuel-Gauge shows that less than 95% of the total power remains; with this condition the battery pack can charge to 100% of its capacity. This protects the battery pack from being overcharged or having a shortened life.
If the voltage is still less than +10.0 Vdc after recharging, replace the battery.
