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?

    Omg do you know how much money I would spend if that was a thing? Especially if you get to assemble the gundams somewhat like those old model toy kits. The answer is zero dollars. I would spend zero dollars. It would still be so good, though.

    i just saw a video yesterday that mentioned how it's a good thing 1-2-switch wasn't a pack in title because it would've made everyone lose faith in the switch immediately and they might have a point
