Many chargers will not put power into a completely flat battery. If this is the case you will need to connect a charged battery with jump leads, to power up the charger circuit.

If it ain't broke, fix it till it is. If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem. Lack of funds is the mother of ingenuity

Or your charger/charging circuit might have a fault ,and nothing is reaching the battery. If you have a multi meter check the voltage at the battery with the charger on and off.
