The chances are that the battery has failed. The age of the device would indicate that the battery is probably NiCd - these batteries have a memory effect that means after a while the battery thinks that "fully Discharged" would be the state that is the most usual for the charger to be used most often. You will need to open the device to get the battery out to find the part number. You will then be able to order on from an online retailer.

My device won't charge


This situation sometimes occurs when the batteries get overcharged. Use the phone for a day and then attempt to charge. If it still won't charge, remove the battery for about a minute. Then re-install the battery and attempt to charge. If that doesn't clear the problem, you may need to get a new battery.
