Battery charge light blinking

My battery charge light on my Pavilion has started constantly blinking.  Is this an indication of a battery problem?  How do I make it stop.  It is very annoying.

Hi Rerden,

 

Thank you for the information.

 

I would request you to perform the following troubleshooting steps:

 

1. Disconnect the AC power adapter cord, remove the battery, and hold the Power button for 30 seconds. This will discharge the notebooks system capacitors.

2. Connect the AC adapter to a working power outlet or surge protector and connect it to the notebook.

3. Press the Power button to turn on the notebook.

 

Check if the issue get resolved. Otherwise I would request you to perform the battery health check using following link....
