| | Curve doesn't turn on? Battery Contacts?

So I received a 8300 from a friend. He said that it wouldn't turn on. So I had a look at it last night...
~Put in the battery and the red light goes on then off.
~I plug in the power to mini usb charger and the red light comes on, goes though its hour glass process/service provider logo then shuts off.
~I figured it was a battery problem maybe, so I played with it (pushing the battery down harder for a better contact and the red light goes on then powers up. I let go and it turns off.
~Added some electrical tape to make that solid contact and it worked for a good 1-2 hrs.
~I tired to put in my SIM card and now it doesn't work again.
Sooo im guessing if I replace the battery contacts it should be fine?
I also tried using the loader to wipe out the old OS and start new, but it usually shuts down. Now i'm stuck with the 507 error?
