    I just received my camera back from yuneec for repairs, I go to charge the battery and the charger just blinks green and will not charge. I checked to ensure all connections are correct and the fuse does not appear to be blown. Any suggestions?
    Thanks.

    The fuse is fine. Inspected and tested.

    Did you find a solution to this problem? I am having the same issue and was wondering how or if you resolved this.

    I did not find a solution. I was told to check the fuse. The fuse is fine.
    I was told to purchase a new battery charger, but I don't really have the money to spend on it right now. I remain grounded.
    I wish they would just supply a good quality charger when you purchase the drone.

    I just went through a similar problem and what happened to me was the battery had dropped below the nominal voltage so the smart charger would not charge it. I went to my local hobby shop and bought a charger with more features and the guys there showed me how to "bump" the battery up to a level where the charger would recognize it and then I was able to charge the battery successfully. Not an ideal solution but the $60 I spent on the charger was cheaper than a new battery and I like being able to see the cell values on the digital display of the new charger.
