If the battery was bad it would still light up when the charger is attached and plugged in. I messed around with a few. Bruce is right. if light does not come on it is likely done.
First have you tried another charger to make sure the one you are using is not bad. They do go bad.
If you don't have another one you can check it with a volt meter set to low DC. Plug it in and put the probes on the contacts and see if you get any readings. It won't hurt if they are reversed . You are just trying to see if you got voltage. If the needle moves its probably good then.
If it is good there is another thing though if it were mine I would check. You have nothing to lose.
Dc40 are real easy to open. Once apart I would check the wires that come from the charging port connections to the mother board. Make sure they are attached and with no corrosion . Be extremely careful they are very fine and require steady hands when handling them. If they look good then chances are it is probably done.
There is a market for the charger and parts.
IT SEEMS THAT EVERYTIME A BREED OR LINE OF DOGS GET POPULAR IT EVENTUALLY LEADS TO ITS RUINATION BY UNINFORMED PEOPLE BREEDING WITHOUT DOING THEIR RESEARCH FIRST.
