    Hold the off button in until it goes out. Do not let go till it goes out.

    Hi brendon, Welcome to the forum

    Any chance of a little more, maybe a lot more info on your issue?

    The instructions for the FC40 are not easy to read and follow, but it's important.

    Ok, I have dji fc-40 phantom drone. I have had for over a year, so I'm Preety familiar with it. My battery is fully charged, I plug it in and the led just flashes green on the drone. Won't turn on and just flashes green...

    When was the last time you did an Advanced IMU Calibration?

    There's a link in my signature with some advice on that.

    Yes it's on the ground when I plug battery in. I Have not done an advanced calibration, I plug battery in an goes right to blinking green. Won't do anything else, just flash green man

    Lets go to a conversation, I've sent already.

    Go to the envelope icon near the top right of your screen, next to your name.

    I'm having a similar issue...green lights only. I ordered a new led module. I don't get ANY colors but green. I've checked everything. My compass readings in assistant are out of spec a bit a bit (700+ in MOD reading), but it doesn't give me a self check status. I bought mine used, but learned a lot since I bought it.

    Are you getting any red or yellow flashes on power up?
