Hey everyone, I just recently picked up a used Phantom 3 Standard, and despite all my efforts the battery refuses to charge. I plug it into the charger, and the first bar flashes for about 10 minutes (which makes me think that it is charging). After 10 minutes, the bars stop flashing and then it doesn't seem to be charging. I left it on the charger for a few hours after the green lights stopped and it didn't show any change in charge.

Any help is appreciated.

Sounds like a bad battery, old and sat to long without proper care and maintenance. You could do a search on this forum to learn about trying to “wake up “ a battery. Use the magnifying glass icon at the top of the page. There are many posts about it.

The fact that the first led flashes shows that it likely is not in hibernation mode. My only suggestion is to first power the battery on and then connect the charger and hope for the best.
