    Battery error after firmware update, battery center 2 bars have been up for more that 12 hours and can't turn it off, anyone knows what it means when the center 2 bars are fully light?

    Try to press button for 5 seconds and leave it for an hour.

    Do you have a safe way to discharge say by 20%?

    Yes I tried, when I place it in the drone it said battery error and I could not turn it off! All the drone lights were constant red and it was making a constant screeching sound.

    Is it getting hot? Keep it at a safe place.

    I had once similar issue but got solved in an hour or so. Its a glitch created by some bad charger.

    It's not hot to the touch, but I'm keeping it in a safe place just in case

    Connect charger and then press for 5 seconds and leave it.

    Just to make sure that it is definitely more than 5 seconds!

    williamTan, are you in the UK?

    Nope it does not work, I hold it for more than 15 sec. Still the same. I'm in Malaysia.

    Hate to tell you, but I had a similar problem. Tried everything! Week later had to send it in to DJI. Took about a month and a half to get it back.

    That is spooky. The previous thread was only a couple of days ago! ....You're traveling through another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind
