The battery is not recognized, mostly likely because it is deeply drained.

Try this, connect a wall charger you know that works in the past, and leave it to charge for several (5-6) hours.
With the charger still connected, remove the battery a minute, reinsert and see if it boots up.

If not, continue to charge another long period of several hours and try the battery pull/reinsert again, repeating if needed. I've had one take a full day of charging like this before it booted up with a good battery.

And if the above fails, try a new battery.
