these suggestions are just to try and jumpstart the smart chip on the battery. the device has to know there's a battery and what level the battery is at before it can start charging it. the chip is what provides that info... but if it has no juice to operate, the battery is as good as non-existent as far as the device is concerned.

why is it still dead? because dead things usually dont come back to life after being killed. yes. you killed the battery. not figuratively.
