Orange charging, green charged, red - um dunno?

Might be a power management unit issue...
(Can be reset, but if all seems well again now I'd just leave it).

sometimes RTFM helps, especially for such basic questions... :cool:

I will check the manual tomorrow (I don't live with the old's and it's at there place) but thought someone might know in the mean time as im going to be a bit pushed for time when i go there tomorrow.....I did try searching online prior to posting but only came up with the orange & green...can't see any mention of red.
