how many times has been charged?
if it is quite old i ve read somewhere that "zapping" can revive old batteries, for a limited period of time though..

Vito i had a look and found the following info:
" A Li-ion battery provides 300 to 500 discharge/charge cycles or two to three years of service from the time of manufacturing. The loss of battery capacity occurs gradually and often without the knowledge of the user. There are no remedies to restore Li-ion batteries when worn out."
sorry...

It happens vito. The only thing to do is replace the batt pack.

Batteries are one of those items that need to be replaced periodically. Yours is apparently at that point.
