I know. It's funny! I feel like madame Cleo sometimes, trying to perceive what's broken with other people's busted stuff. ;-P

It turns out there's a word, "cybrarian", for people who look up information for other people using the web. Well, that's part of the job description.

I just learned about that word today, because, coincidentally, it's M-W's word of the day today.

Or maybe it's not a coincidence, rather just another example of the spooky serendipity that comes with being an Instructables question-answerer. I mean I was there, at M-W, to look up a completely different word.

My new electric drill refused to charge. A wire had fallen off one of the charging clips the battery slides into.

Always worth looking for the simple things.

have you checked out what the manual says?

from what I could find even though I don't have your exact model number is that apparently fast blinking red means the battery pack is no good and slow blinking red means it's charging and solid red means it's charged
