I can't charge my console, the charging light won't come on unless I remove the battery, and will turn back off as soon as I put it back in.

Anyone know what could be causing this?
Any help is appreciated!

I've tried with multiple batteries, all of which do charge when put in a different console.

Sorry, shoud've mentionned that as well.

I had the same problem. I posted a thread here but can't find a link to it at the moment. Try putting a thinish piece of cardboard between the system and the battery.

no idea; but it worked with mine. Perhaps it aligns the contacts up slightly better?

Here is where I learned of the trick.
Thanks for the help!
Unfortunately, I'm referring to the charging light only. The console does function properly otherwise.
It appears inserting a battery stops the system from charging.

My only guess so far was that it could be a false positive from the overdischarge protection circuit?
