Faulty Charger ¶ 

If the device fails to charge after being plugged into the power adaptor for adequate amount of time, it's possible that the device charger has failed.

Faulty Battery ¶ 

If the device fails to charge after being plugged into the power adaptor for adequate amount of time and you have tried a working or new device charger, it's possible the battery is faulty. This process will require you to solder the battery wiring to the motherboard. In order to do this, you will need to refer to a soldering guide at Soldering. Caution should be used when replacing the battery, as an old battery can swell. This swelling can make the device casing difficult to remove and increase the opportunities to puncture the battery. It is recommended that safety glasses be used when replacing a battery.
