Won't charge, even with new battery

I got a new battery from ifixit which I thought would do the trick, but the symptoms are still the same: when plugged in it gives the “battery” icon (unchanged for days at a time), and the screen basically stays on with a flicker to a dark battery every 20 seconds.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I have a similar issue. You might want to try plugging it into a USB port on a laptop or PC/Mac. The low voltage charge from USB2 ports can slow/trickle charge and wake up the battery.
