Good day and Welcome to Justanswer,

Thank you for the model number.

Please allow few minutes while I check its schematics and then type the answer.

Expert:  KevinWhiteJA replied 12 days ago.

This indicates either the charger is faulty and/or battery will need replacement.

You may try this:

Please leave it unplugged for few minutes.

Then press and hold the ON button; whilst holding the ON button put the charger back on and let go the button after around 20 seconds.

See if it works, if the issue is still there, I am afraid the battery pack will need replacement.

Usually the battery lasts for around 3-4 years.

Alternatively, you may call VAX at 0330(###) ###-####to book repair.

If there is anything else I can help you with, please let me know.
