Is it Nano li-ion? have you got another spare battery to double- check?
I experienced the same problem with 18V Dewalt nano li-ion battery. Was fully charged, came to work- Dead!!! I was lucky I had spare one, so then i was ok, but anyways had to buy a new one. Check on these things:
1. Battery is faulty. If u have any chances to ask someone who has the same gun (voltage is very important!!! has to be the same!!!- 12V battery to 12V gun, 14.4 to 14.4, 18 to 18 etc). Put your battery into that other gun. If You find the same problem that means your battery is dead.
2.Gun with battery contacts. If you 100% sure, that batterIES (check 2 batteries, or more) are OK, check bottom contacts where u put battery in, use WD40, or similar to clean them.
3. Least common Dewalt thing (Most common in Panasonic drills) is trigger contacts.
Basically i do not know what model is your dewalt, i was only talking in general, but there are no miracles- stopped working suddenly, and what u describe new, for instance my new drill dw727kd is less than 1 year old, i was too stuppid to open that battery myself to void warranty :(
AAAAHHH!!!!!! One more thing - If you have not tried to open these screws- check your nearest Dewalt authorised repair center- new NANO batteries have 2year warranty!

You are sure the battery is charged OK? Bosch Li-Ion drills have a feature whereby they stop working when the battery is low but not discharged right out. This is to extend the battery life as it does not like being flattened altogether.

This happens quite suddenly, from one press of the trigger to the next. It can make you think the drill is faulty.

If the battery charge is OK, then maybe
- trigger faulty
- motor burnout
- broken contact on battery or in drill battery shoe

Charger blinks while charging, stops when batteries are fully charged.
New batteries may not be charged from factory. Let them charge overnite and see if it stops blinking.

You should try to charge the battery again. Or you can try to fix it or then its time to get a new battery.
