That sounds like a classic battery failure in the Roomba discovery series. There are sensors inside the battery pack that go bad too. Either way...it's not very practical to repair the battery....the best shot you have would be to order a replacement battery. You just pop the old one out and then put the new one in.
They are available from iRobot for $69 at this link: http://store.irobot.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2799714&cp=2804606.3358509&ab=CMS_AccSuper_Roomba400_102308&parentPage=family
There are sources of less expensive (about $35) Genuine iRobot quality batteries also. You could try www.RoboticVacParts.com at this link: http://cgi.ebay.com/OEM-iRobot-APS-battery-Roomba-400-4XXX-Discovery_W0QQitemZ270412120603QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item3ef5d1821b&_trksid=p4634.c0.m14.l1262&_trkparms=|301%3A1|293%3A1|294%3A30

SOURCE: Roomba Docking Station
Probably not, unless you just have to have the docking station. My roomba always had trouble mating with my docking station so I never used it. I just plugged it directly in to will using the AC adapter.

You may not believe this, but the new 500 series lighthouse virtual walls have both infrared and radio frequency communication. How they work and associate with the Roomba is pretty complicated. The best posting I've ever seen about how they work is here:
Check out that link to understand how the communication works.
If your Roomba is contained by the virtual walls, then you can assume the IR sensor on your Roomba us good....you should test that though. Then you might have to replace the "home base" which could have a bad IR transponder . New ones can be found for reasonable price at www.RoboticVacParts.com or you could order straight from iRobot for twice the price.
If the Roomba is not contained by the virtual walls, then the IR sensor on the Roomba is likely bad and you'll need to change the bumper on your Roomba. Again ....parts are available through ebay, or www.RoboticVacParts.com. Follow this link if you need it.

SOURCE: My Roomba does not want to dock
Need more info.
Does the unit go into search mode? "SPOT & CLEAN" flashing? It actually tries to search?
Do you have another roomba to test your dock on to see if IT will dock? If it tries but just cant, then either the dock transmitter, or the roombas receiver is dead. (The round antennae thingys on the dock and the bumper) replace these would be the first point.
