Why is my Android battery icon going grey?

My HTC Desire S battery icon intermittently changes to grey with an exclamation mark through it. What the heck does that mean?!?!

Just bought a HTC HERO S, the phone is not charging when plugged in. It shows an orange and green light blinking. Again, the battery icon is gray with this mark (!), does show the battery level. in the first place I thought its a battery, but now I have place it with a new original battery, but still. Any one to help me? Will appreciate that

This normally means there's a fault with the battery. Take the battery out, reinsert it and do a full charge cycle (charge to full, use till empty). If the exclamation mark still appears you may want to ask for a replacement under the manufacturer's warranty.
