Alternating Charging Light - Red - White

PostSun Oct 24, 2021 1:55 am

I just recently began using my new 6K Pro Camera. I initially charged the NP-F570 battery that came with the camera. The record light came on red and stayed red until a full charge. Then went off.

Today I attached the battery grip with two new NP-F570 batteries and charged. It started out a steady red and then turned to an alternating red and white. I read about this happening on another BM thread but it did not seem to resolve the issue or suggest what to do.

I then turned on the camera and all three battery icons show white and appear to be charged. Is this just a fluke of this configuration when charging, or is this a problem I should follow up on?

Please advise.
