sounds to me like all the liquid was not dry before putting in new battery and charging and that may have caused a short in the bb and maybe fried it.

how long did you let BB dry?

Ditto EZRunner, and to confirm. I had water damage once on my unit and after hours of drying out, I replaced the battery and it worked for several hours. However, by the next morning it was dead and completely unusable. I should have waited days!
