Dyson V8 battery isn't charging.

Indicator flashes blue - like low battery power. When charger is on, indicator doesn't light at all.

Sounds like the charger. The charger output needs to be tested with a meter before you would suspect the battery.

Charger is ok. Battery was dissassembled and checked. It seems, that the trouble is in the battery board. Like charge does not go to the battery.

Charger plug seems to be wrinkled. My thoughts - that user somehow damaged the plug, and it werent connect right to dyson. Than he checked it with meter and decided to check battery too, but somehow closed the battery (if it's possible).

Just bite the bullet - replace the battery and charger imo.

I wouldn't be happy having a machine in my home that has had the battery pack disassembled.
If it was assembled it can be disassembled - if we can't repair it then it probably isn't worth repairing !
