Give it a good squirt of WD40 and operate the trigger a couple of dozen times after removing the battery.

I am not familiar with this model, but most chargers have a flashing light as the battery charges, and a solid light when it is charged. Do you have the manual? It should tell you what the lights mean.

They usually smart chargers so once fully charged they revert to a trickle charge to keep them full.

Safest is to read the manual if you have one or download one if you haven't.
You need to know the meaning of the flashing lights.

If it turns out it means the battery is faulty - I have known battery chargers to refuse to charge a battery that has been fully discharged and after I had taken the battery to pieces and got some charge into the cells by diverse means it went on for another year or two.

It is best to use and charge even if it has only a few minutes discharge. Top up charges don't heat the cells like a full charge does and it is the heat that shortens battery life.

You are facing a puzzle many owners of cordless tools face - often!

It could be either - unless you have a friend or neighbour or a nearby supplier that has the same model charger or battery to allow some swapping around.

The charger I have seen looks like an old ni-cad type charger rather than a modern lithium type. Ni-cad batteries self discharge and if allowed to become discharged through lack of use they soon become useless if not quickly recharged.
Generally ni-cad batteries should be checked and recharged if necessary each month. Young batteries shouldn't need charging much during storage but the older they become the more they will self discharge until they are useless.

Only you know the history of the battery you want to recharge. The one hour fast charger has a certain amount of intelligence and safety built in and if working correctly will reject batteries it thinks will be unsafe to charge.
If the battery will dismantle easily you could check each of the six cells with a voltmeter. If one or two are completely dead while the others have voltage it suggests the battery is past it...
