Why does the drill no longer work, but the led blinks 5 times?

Why does the drill no longer work, but the led blinks 5 times?

I used the drill for one full charge, then removed the battery and charged it.  After installing the battery, the drill no longer works.  The LED light on the front end blinks 5 times when depressing the trigger, but will not blink again until I remove the battery, reinstall and depress the trigger again.  I’ve tried 4 different Ryobi batteries all with the same result.

"Hi,

How old is the drill?

According to the manual there is a 3 year manufacturer’s warranty on the drill.

If yours is still within the warranty period, follow the directions in the warranty statement on how to make a claim for a manufacturer’s warranty repair or replacement."

It may be a battery circuit problem i.e you still can check its voltage is ok which means the volatge of the battery cells but still there is a circuit inside the battery which i think the reason of this, i have a similar problem as i made an external battery pack for my drill in case of emergency but when i tried it it made the drill work for 3 seconds and stopped and the led is blinking but when i put the original battery it works fine
