hey kevin,

in most of these cases where either the battery no longer with us or the power PCB bust. to find out which it is you will need to open the speaker using guide: Bose SoundLink Mini Battery Replacement

and then using a multimeter to see if the battery can hold charge if the battery is actually dead then you will have to get a new battery. otherwise see if there is anything unusual with the speaker using this guide:

I discovered after several attempts to charge it via the Multi-function button, I simply replaced the cable with a new cable (was my hubby's shaving cord) and VOILA!! The Bose mini 2 charged without even using the cradle.

100% charged --working fabulous!!!

Have you checked the connector port is clean and undamaged/loose?

Also check that the cable/plug is undamaged- not sure if this charger has an indicator light that it is receiving power?

Try a known working charger (the pin connector on these is fairly common).
