I have had a look at the manual but it only refers to the charger care, as for the "bulb" I doubt that it is (I do not know this item) it is more apt to be an LED (a big one or many small ones) these do not run direct of a battery but work via an electronic circuit which converts a battery voltage to suit the LED. This device can then compensate for a battery that is running down keeping the light bright.
I suspect that this has been damaged by that water as LED's are "hard" to destroy in normal terms lasting for years.
You would be best sending it to Dewalt if that case is intact but let water in you may get it fixed at a reduced cost as it should not happen, if I am wrong on that bulb it would still be worth it for that reason alone.
Rechargeable batteries are almost never worth rebuilding and never last very long when they are. In some cases, Makita being one, if the circuit board in the battery detects something wrong with the battery, it 'bricks' the battery. This is not resettable and the battery will not charge on a Makita charger. I'd be looking to get my money back from the repairman since his rebuild didn't take.
Rechargeable batteries don't last forever. Lithium batteries in particular can fail early if they are allowed to become totally discharged.
It may be worth buying a new battery to see if that fixes the problem.
Have you charged your battery successfully before by "having the camera plugged in"? Most cameras that have removeable batteries do not charge them in the camera, but by placing the battery in a separate charger.
I had the same problem and I found out that is definitely the battery. I had used mine only a few counted times and after 1 year the battery would not charge. I would plug it and the charge light would turn on and stayed for about 4 minutes and then turned off. I called axion and talk to customer support. The tech said that the internal batteries only last for a year whether you use the DVD or not. They would replace the battery for $60 + shipping costs. As you can see... it is not worth it....sometimes you are lucky and get good stuff for cheap but sometimes... you just get what you pay for.... and this is one of the cases. Yes, I am also very disapponted. What a piece of junk!!!! I can still watch DVD with either the charger plugged in or with the car charger. But it lost its Portable side.....
Batteries do go bad. They sorta die on an age and number of charges basis. I have several sets of DeWalt 18 volt tools. Comes to a total of 8 batteries. I always write the date purchased on the battery. Well, since last December both of my 2006 batteries went bad. I expect the 2007 batteries will go bad this year sometime.
With the NiCad batteries, they are good for a certain number of charges. Which is one reason to run the battery down till it begins to affect performance of the tool. Don't "top off' the charge by putting a battery that is not worn down in a charger, cause you effectively use up one more charge.
I have never had batteries last much more than 2 and a half years.
Now, the Lithium batteries are supposed to have fixed all that --
Sounds like your cheap-o generic charger has overcharged or fried your battery. Don't put it back in your camera. Buy cheap, get cheaped. :( Go to; www.kodak.com You need a new battery; KLIC-7001 and a universal charger; Li-Lon Universal Battery Charger K7600-C, it's about $35, the Batt is about $30 but it is worth the money to have something that works and a camera that you can now use.
