Unhappy Odyssey 03X not charging...

Hopefully I get a response here, I'm not exactly expecting it since the last post on here was in 2013... But I've got to give it a shot. I love this gun despite its quirkyness and I really want it to work.

Anyway, tried the charger and the screen reads 0.23 volts, I've left it to see if maybe it would kind of trickle charge it, to no availability. I've tried disconnecting everything in there, and reconnecting them, nothing.
I'm thinking maybe the battery is shot or (hopefully not) one of connections on the board. the more thought I put into it, the more I think it must be the battery / one of the connecting wires... everything looks alright, no visible damage. the gun is getting old now, but it barely even shot a case of paint before I stopped playing a few years ago, if that. maybe the battery went bad in that time, I don't know.

I have to assume there is nothing left of any sort of customer service for them, so any help or, pointing me towards parts (willing to buy a parts gun, even if it only charges properly) would be greatly appreciated!

might be the batt. is no good. how long has it been since last charge? last use? if a few years probably bad. the charger seems to be ok if you plug it in and it shows something. so, best bet would be to look for another batt. search eBay or even an rc car batt might work. just gatta do research. hope this helps.

a couple years I'd say. it hasn't actually been shot in at least 4 years (I'd turn it on a few years ago to play with the trigger, but that's it) charger seems okay, yes.. but wouldn't it say a higher voltage, then quickly run out of juice after I unplug it? the 0.23v thing is the only part that has me doubting it's a battery.

I found an auction on eBay with ten batteries for a rex.. different color battery and for a different gun but looks like it would fit, and I believe it was made by the same people under a different name, so I should try that? at least then if that fits but doesn't work I can know if it was the battery causing the problem or not.

thank you for your response, and help, by the way.
Any amount of input is appreciated at this point...

ok, lets try this, do you have access to a volt meter? if you do try check volts at plugin for charger. 7.0 to 7.4 ish. if that is good then try batt. I seen that you would have to buy bunch of batt, if you can buy 1 or 2 .

I don't know where mine is, but I'll either look for it or borrow one from someone and check. can't believe I haven't done that yet... actually pretty embarrassing.

so I haven't gotten hold of anything to test it, but the company on eBay selling batteries made a listing of just one for me. at about $12 I think I'm going to try it either way, but I'd like to have a second opinion. looks similar. same size, shape, and voltage. only thing different I can tell is color of shrink wrap, I can't see the connector close enough so that's what I have to wonder about. please take a look and let me know what you think.
type in ebay . com / itm?itemId=301094265949
(if you decide you want one, message them and they'll probably make a listing for you too, please don't snag the one they made for me)

thanks

also, does anyone have the slightest clue where I can find a charger? I have one that fits but I don't think it's the one that goes with it, and I don't know if that could be a problem in addition to a battery that is shot.
