Battery LED Flashing

I have a SMCD3GNV unit and noticed the Battery LED is flashing.

Is this something that needs immedite attention?

How is this fixed?

Please advise

Re: Battery LED Flashing

you should call Comcast and ask if they provide battery replacement. I asked when my system was installed new, and was told that they change batteries free of charge...please post the outcome of your call here...

According to the battery supplier Touchstone, the battery should last 6 to 10 years.

Mine just died after less than two. Comcast is happy to replace it  for a mere $40 and

a week's wait while they send it USPS - no expedited shipping even if you wanted to pay for it.

My "dead" battery came back to life and the LED stopped flashing after I removed the battery and reinserted it with a firm, quick, push into place.  Apparently there was some oxidation or corrosion preventing a good, clean connection.  Give it a try and see if you don't get a pleasent surprise.
