Check the water levels in the battery. Odds are it's dropped and you may have a collapsed cell. If so you'll need a new one.

No know it all. Just stating the fact that with a little punctuation and grammer you will get you idea across much easier. This does not just apply to this site but life in general.

As for being special, yes I am, Very f**k Special. See what punctuation can do.
