Why will my Gameboy Advanced SP will not charge or turn on?

I got a GBA SP from my friends and I tried turning it on but it would not turn on. I then plugged it in to the charger. It flashed orange really quickly and then would stop charging. (Note: My OTHER friend said that the battery swells up on those things and it looks like that might be the case but I don't know how to fix that either.) If someone could help me figure that out I would be pretty happy!

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I've diagnosed the problem with mine, the wiring between the charging port and the battery is somehow broken.
