    I think it is telling you that the Mb battery is bad

    I had a 28 that would be green and then flash red...it turned out to be the cord that plugged into the power supply...

    Try charging only the main or MB battery one at a time; it may not be switching the main/MB battery properly if both are very discharged. This can cause a voltage drop that will trick the protection circuit.

    On the 72 if I tried dual dead bat charge it never flashed the MP light but the screen would flicker on and off under heavy cpu usage. Before then I was using the battery charger and the yellow tip from the 29 or 51 to charge the media bay battery separate. The media bay would go 100% and the main would be 98-99%
