    The battery was at least 80% when I was updating

    Keep the battery in off state for few hours and check again. Hope all will get reset correctly if battery is ok

    It will eventually. Incorrect flags are set inside probably due to some glitches. Hope for the best.

    Anyway to discharge it? I don't recommend to use on P3 until set correctly

    I had once this kind of odd state. Last two LEDs were on. Kept it at a safe place for few hours and it returned to normal. It happened to me when I was trying multi charger board. I don't use it any more. Safety is more important than saving few hours.

    Try pressing and holding the button for more than 5 seconds or connecting the charger for 5 seconds then removing - these normally trigger a reset of the battery manager. It may not work but worth a try.

    Did anything work? Is your battery working again?

    Same happened to a brand new battery for me. I took the battery immediately back and they replaced it.

    Be careful with this battery.. As it was brand new i put it in to update and it stuck through the middle process. The battery was not responding and the gimbal was beeping like crazy.

    Any luck fixing this? One of mine just did the same thing. Two center green lights, won't shut down.

    Update- talked to DJI support. He suggested to plug it in and charge for a couple of hours and see if it clears. If it didn't, call them back for an RMA.

    Guess what!? I called them back (it didn't work). Waiting on email RMA info.
