    How long has it been like that? I experienced the same thing on a P2V+ and just left it - next day all was fine and has been for long time now. Would be good to know why!

    Try powering it up and plugging in charger. That should cause it to start charging. It should start a force charge and then the lights should go to blinking on the next LED.

    Do not risk your Drone. I sugest you use the drone at a very low altitude once that battery is fully charged, see what hapen. Also check voltage of each cell During flight

    How long have you had the battery? Use DJI GO to check the battery's remaining lifetime.

    Red all the way around or just the back? Does the battery still have just the center LED's lit?

    Can you shut off the battery?

    Try holding the power button for 5 seconds And see what happens with the four green LED's.

    I wanted you to take the battery out of the P2 and push down the power button for 5 seconds to see if all four green LED's will lit and the red LED will start flashing.
