Put it in the cradle, without breaking the circuit poke the reset hole.
let it charge for 4 hours without playing with it.
This will reload the charge circuit profile with factory settings, as
they tend to get corrupted.
The usable life of Li-ion batteries is 2-4 years, maybe they are weak
and need replacing. See www.pdaparts.com, they sell replacement
batteries and have easy instruction on how to replace them.
Hope this helps.
