Briefly remove/replace the battery and then plug in the usb cable from a
computer - not the wall plug.  Removing the battery allows the safety
circuit to reset itself.

Wait at least 10-15 minutes to tricklecharge, then try booting again.
You may have to remove/replace the battery again.  Boot with the usb
cable plugged in.

The lable saying what version you have is under the battery.
