why is my mains charger flicking on and off?

hi i have a mid range mains charger by projecta . it was charging fine, it has accretive increments of red, amber and green . but today it has red, and amber -meaning charging - flicks on roughly every 4 seconds for roughly 2 seconds, with a little click. it is charging 4x deep cycle Blue tops - it is possible they are fully charged, since they get a solar top up every day. i switch off that solar charger to run the mains charger. batteries seem to b e running my circuits ok. any ideas? thnx

Have you checked that this isn't an automated top off mechanism? I have a cheapie charger that cycles on/off. If battery is ok, it cuts off. If charge needed, it stays on.
