The issue could be that the battery has not been charged, the charger is not fully inserted, or could be faulty itself. Verify that the battery is properly charged. If the charger isn’t working, it would be best to find a replacement for it.
Battery is not properly installed

The battery could have gotten wet or filled with debris, causing the battery to die regardless of how many times it is charged. If the issues persist, the battery might need a replacement. Refer to our guide on how to install the battery here.
If none of the issues above apply, it could mean an issue with the motherboard. Refer to the motherboard replacement guide which can be found here.
