    I bought a crashed p3 pro from a older man and thought I was getting a good deal as there was three batteries but two of them will not charge. They light up one light and blink three times fast then repeat when plugged into the charger........any one have a fix??

    Is the one light the left one the one that farthest away from the turn on button? Also when the green light blinks 3 times does the red light on the turn on button stays on and when the green light stops does the red light turn off to?

    oh bummer I thought you had a fix for me since you had the symptoms down......oh well I think that is what you get when you store your batteries for a long time without charging them.......I think that is why mine are messed up....the guy I bought it from crashed them many moons ago and they were sitting in a box in his garage.....2 p3 pros and 1 p2 vision+ and four batteries......$350 thought it was a steal.......till 2 batteries didn't charge then 1 p3 didn't work at all the p2 works but no camera and the other p3 has a short somewhere and flew the first day but hasn't since then.........ugggghhhhh

    It is possible the batteries have been allowed to discharge to a critical level, they may be unserviceable. Leave on the charger for 10mins+. If charging does not commence you can forget it.

    I tried charging while it was on and after about 10 min it goes back to the green light blinking 3 times.

    I left it on for about 12 hr to see if it will come back and nothing. I think its like you said, its in a real low discharge that can't be recovered.
