    Hi,
    I have two batteries for p3a.I do not know which one came with the drone.Problem is this.

    Make sure the firmware is upto date on the batteries.

    If the has more than 80% charge it will not auto charge unless the battery is on.

    One of my batteries did the same. I now plug in before turning on the socket. Fault cleared and starts charging in auto. Not really an answer as to why, more of a solution.
