Running the battery down is not good. Lithium batteries can be damaged if you let them get below 20% several times.

First, how are you trying to charge it - wall charger or connected to a PC? Try a working wall charger and see if that does anything.

If not, get a new OEM battery and see if that fixes the problem. Make sure that it is one for the 9700 and not a cheap knock-off from places like eBay, etc.

What happened just before it died? Did you drop it, get it wet?
