My PAL won't work anymore unless plugged in. It doesn't appear that the battery is charging. We leave it plugged in for a while, but then, when we try to use it without the power chord, it won't turn on.

Check the voltage from the charger, check the socket which it plugs into for fractures and dry joints on the circuit board. Those are the most likely failure points. Have you tried moving the plug around to see if it's a bad connection?
The battery probably isn't taking a charge anymore because it needs to be replaced. These batteries will sometimes last a few years but then a replacement is needed and they will likely run like new. You can check out http://www.batteryinternational.com/lantern-battery.html to find a replacement battery, or you can call 1-877-28-BATTERY if you are having difficulting finding the battery you need.
UNPLUG THE RADIO !!!!!!!!!
Try removing the battery cover and remove and disconnect the battery.
Reconnect the battery and replace the battery cover.
Now, plug the radio into the wall electrical outlet and wait, the blue light on the radio top should start flash and will flash for about 10 minutes and then stop flashing.
Leave the radio plugged in for about 16 to 24 hours to completely charge the battery. For the first three or four times, completely drain the battery and completely recharge for 16 to 24 hours, this will condition the battery .... mine works like a dream. GR
