I purchased a used Nikon D40 that came with charger and battery.

Since the battery was somewhat low, I charged it. The light on the charger started to blink, then after two hours, went out completely.

I then charged a new Lenmar battery that I bought as a spare. I inserted it into the charger. The light start to blink, then after a period of time, the charger light remained steady amber which according to the manual, means it is fully charged.

Does the fact that the amber light on the charger extinguishes when I charge the Nikon original battery mean that there is something wrong with the battery?
