    Does not sound real good, and have not had that problem. (knock on wood) Have you used this same battery before ? Well, I am no expert but learning as it goes. You need to check inside the battery compartment and there should be a small shield covering the light. Should only see the part of the usb connection to the light. You might have to remove the top shell and look deeper to see if something came loose, or see sign of damaged wire.. hope that helps
