Lumia 2520 tablet not charging

I recently got a Nokia Lumia 2520 from a second-hand market (i know it's pretty old but it's what I needed, eheh) but now I got a big issue: The battery seems to not charge.

I tried with the tab turned on and off too but nothing seems to work, it works only with the power brick inserted and Windows telss me constantly "plugged in but not charging" while stuck at 0%. The battery seems to OK (not faulty) since it doesn't say "battery missing" or "non detected" but still there's no way to charge it.

I tried the trick of resetting battery drivers in Windows but it didn't work, I dunno if I did something wrong.

Someone has a solution, please?

Its an 8 year old device. The battery is probably toast.  

I just want to sit back and watch the world burn.

Even if the device has never been used? It's second hand but the device actually never left its box...

So the only solution is to replace it, I guess... It looks glued together truly strongly, I hope to not break it.

Thanks for the answer!

If you run batteries like these to very low levels it can cause issues. There is a chance the battery was down to 0% and might have been at that state for a while. Sometimes if you leave the device off and plugged in for a while sometimes that can fix the issue.

Kept it a whole day and a whole night plugged in, nothing happened sadly.

At this point I guess you are right and the battery is just dead and I need to replace it.

Thanks for the help, anyway!
