I charged both of my batteries and they both appeared to charge ok. When I put one in my Phantom 3 and turned it on it came on and all four lights were green. After about 5 seconds lights went off. I tried my other battery and it done the same thing. Never could get them to stay on. What's up with this? Phantom and batteries not but about 8 months old. No problems before this. HELP!

Did you:
Press button, Release, then press again and hold until each LED lights sequentially?

When you turn them on, are you doing a quick push, and then push and hold for a couple of seconds? ..It sounds as if you may just be giving one push.

Edit. Got beaten to it!

Just wondering if you've owned it for 8 months how could have not known this? And you have flown it before?

I suggest you to fly in beginners mode first until you get enough confidence.
