I often bought new batteries for iBooks G4 from China and many of them were DOA. You should check with a known working one.

Your battery is probably shorting out. Download and run Coconut battery and see if we can spot where the problem is and let us know your results. My first thought is the battery connector and possible corrosion. Has it gotten wet?
