FP2: flashing red LED, with and without battery – what does this mean?

I have tried to start my old, very old FP2. First with battery, which I charge. Then without battery and with power supply.

But with and without battery: the red LED flashes continuously.

Even this guide didn’t help me: ✏ How to charge a completely empty battery

What does that mean? Any defect in/on the phone?

Thank you!

It could be your battery is dead.
Try a kickstart to see if you can revive your battery.


I don’t know which solution led to my FP2 coming back to life :wink:

I tried it again. When I plugged in the power adapter, the LED stayed red and after several minutes the battery was actually charged again.
