Hello and welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums.

The battery may be so dead it can't charge and may go on to be unable to pass power through itself. Find a new one on e-Bay or similar but avoid the cheap Chinese firecrackers and buy a decent one from a trusted source.

Meanwhile, remove the battery and just use mains power.
