Probably a dead battery. Have you let it run down (past 20%) more than once or twice?

Did the device get dropped or wet?

First, make sure the contacts are clean on the battery and the device and make sure the battery is inserted properly.

If that doesn't fix it, try a new battery and see if that works - an OEM BB battery for your specific device, not a cheap knock off.

Wipe with jl_cmdr (see the FAQ) and then reload the OS.

Did you try a new battery?
