Charge it for a few hours even if it doesn't appear to respond, then try to turn it on...

Hibernation mode :

It is important NOT to alter the sequence :

1. Switch on battery - ignore what happens with lights etc.
2. LEAVE IT ALONE for at least 5 minutes.
3. Do NOT touch power button - plug into DJI Charger.
4. LEAVE IT ALONE .. it may be hours before it wakes up ... DON'T TOUCH IT !

You need a DJI charger for this - its only time a specific DJI charger is required in fact ... you cannot use any 3rd party charger ...

The secret is to NOT touch the power button after point 1) ...... if you do ... you need to put battery away for a while - then start again.

There are other ways to wake these batterys up - but DJI would kill me if I passed that on !!

I'm intrigued

I've had posts deleted when I've given solutions to problems that DJI didn't like or did not conform to their setups.

Say it isn't so...shocking!

Well thanks for trying...I guess if I ever run in to this problem I'll PM you and see if we can arrange a dead drop to get the info somewhere

Hi Nigel, I’m Kerry. I read where you said there are other ways to wake up hibernating  batteries. I tried your posted procedure but nothing, I have no lights green or any color even after waiting hours.
I have $300 of basically still new batteries and I thought I was taking good care of them. Set to discharge/3 days.
Only used them a dozen times nice weather only for one season and put on shelf.
I did not use them at all this summer but took them out
just recently to find neither will even turn on.
So not to get you killed by DJI, could I learn another procedure from you that mighr work? ...by email or can you point me to published info source on a procedure?              

Thanks Nigel

P.S. You have my word that I will not publish or reveal.

then try to check charger controller it use BQ30Z554-R1 and communitation MCU MSP340, when the battery in ship mode ( detail in BQ30Z554-R1 Manual) to wake up it need communication from MCU.
now i'll try to powering the ronin directly from power supply, see what will happend.

I am reluctant to detail how to open up and work on a battery that has been designed to prevent such action.

If I give out the details and a person has an accident or incident - I would feel very bad about it.

Basically any person who has a reasonable knowledge of LiPo's in general should be able to work it out for themselves how to do it.

I also have to respect that this forum is DJI owned and therefore not the place to detail such work.

You mentioned that it was "new"?  I would just take it back and not screw around with it.  Let DJI deal with their e-waste.

I now am experiencing same problem.  I put 3 P4P batteries in the charging hub and placed on storage mode. I came back a couple months later to find my batteries completely unresponsive. The charging hub did exactly what it's intended to prevent. It discharged the batteries. I've been going back and forth with technical support. They are animate that this being a warranty issue. However, I feel it's not. I used the hardware correctly and it was ruined. I hope they will come to the same conclusion as. I love their hardware and would hate to switch this late in the game (I have a bunch of stuff for my P4P and Mavic Pro) but I get the impression they are rushing development and issues are surfacing in the consumer's hands. They've put so much resources into development that they possibly cannot afford to make these things right despite are ultimately their responsibility. However as a consume I cannot afford to take on their R&D risk nor should anybody else. This is not the first time I have experienced such issues, I was mailed a defective refresh of my Mavic Pro. Unfortunately, my refresh policy expired by the time I used the refreshed unit. It took a little persuasion but they eventually mailed me a new unit (non refurbished unit. Refreshes are refurbished units and the tech that did mine had ripped the gimbal cable). I hope they come to the same conclusion as I and take care of those of us who ended up with defective batteries.

Oh gosh my post had many typos and it will not let me fix them Let's try this again lol

I love DJI hardware and would hate to switch this late in the game. I have somewhere around $4500 sunk into my P4P and Mavic Pro with extra batteries, charing hubs, crystal sky, cases, filters, etc. etc. et.

Unfortunately, I get the impression they are rushing development and issues are surfacing in the consumer's hands. They've put so much resources into development that they possibly cannot afford to make these things right despite are ultimately their responsibility. As a consume I cannot afford to take on their R&D risk nor would I want to. I use this hardware to for business and I need it to be reliable not to troubleshoot or pay for what isn't caught by their engineers.

Unfortunately, this is not the first time I have experienced such issues. I was mailed a defective refresh of my Mavic Pro. It took a little persuasion but they eventually mailed me a new unit. I hope they come to the same conclusion as I and take care of those of us who ended up with defective batteries. But this all wears on my relationship with DJI and I feel less and less motivitated to invest in their equipment.
