Hi all ,

My first problem with my P3P since i bought it in May 2015 .

I have 5 batteries , including a brand new one .

I went out to test the latest firware today with all batteries fully charged from this morning

Slapped in the new battery to give it an easy first run . Since i kept the Bin on the card , it upgraded the battery . Went out , brought it back at 50% .
Slapped in another battery to test litchi , again updated the second battery . All went fine .
Slapped in third battery. Tried to update , did the DUH-DUH-DUH but failed with a non-stup DUH that went on for like 2-3 minutes . Tried to shut it down with no luck . Funny thing i noticed is the battery had 2 lights on at that time , the 2 middle ones . After trying a coule of time to turn it off , i finally removed it. Then , no lights at all , even when pushing the on/off button .
Slapped in a fourth battery , it updated itself . Went out for testing again . Wow a personnal best of 2.2 Km without a single drop in video . Had to turn around as the GEO told me i was close to an airport ( Which was true )
Slapped in last battery , appears it did not need an update.
Came home and tried to charge the third battery , no luck , nothing .

Any of you experienced some thing like this with one fo your battery ? If so , did you saved it  and how . Is there a way to reset a battery to factory default .

many thanks guys

Can you post a video of the LED's.
Install it again and power up and go to the battery page and get a screen shot and also the advanced battery page.

Hi Ken ,

Right now the battery doesn't turn on . It would turn on when i pulled it out , not even a status bar . And it won't charge , it has been on the DJI charger for 3 hours and nothing , no lights , no heat , no smell .
The LED's that were on at the time , before i pulled the battery out were LED 2 and 3 , the middle ones .

Would i see something in the logs ?

Thanks

In the battery advanced page is the battery log, but you need that battery to power up to see it's current.
But you can look in the log now in the app and see if there's any errors in the history.
if it's more than 6 months old then it is out of warranty.

Finally went to get a new battery . Had left the dead battery on the charger for a whole day , still no lights and no ON/OFF button response. When i slapped in the new battery for the update, i used a freshly formatted Mini Sd card with the BIN file . Update went smoothly .
I then slapped in the dead battery , just to see if it was really dead . To my surprise the bird powered up , still no lights on the battery . It then stated to update itself and the 2 middle lights flashed , then about 30 seconds later all 4 were flashing . It finally completed the upgrade . I turned it off , the on again . Works like nothing happened .



Should i still use that battery  ? The Go app sees no problem , within .01v between the cells . It also sees that it was recharged 24 times .

Very interesting indeed.  Seems the batter firmware needed updated as the last one was apparently 'corrupt'....excellent that you didn't lose a $100 battery!
