2. Check your Wi-Fi connection if this is a related problem:
In a situation where your doorbell is having trouble connecting to Wi-Fi, this can also cause the Ring doorbell’s battery level to be inaccurate.

This can be done directly in the Ring app by going to the Ring app – Devices – Your device – Device status – Power status. You can tell the fault from the power status, as it is expected to show “Good” or “Very Good” if still working.
4. Check the device for damage:
Finally, you can check the device for damage as one of the reasons for the charging problem could be a damaged doorbell.
You can check the charger and USB for damage, as well as the transformer. Make sure the battery is in the correct position.
