XPR7550e, WPLN4243A, and PMNN4491B

I have a XPR7550e with a PMNN4491B battery and a WPLN4243A charger. Charger blinks red and never changes. I got a new battery and same thing. Any clues about a charger repair? I have 2 new WPLN4226A chargers that look like the bad charger. Are they a safe substitute?
