So, my previous battery apparently reached the end of its shelf life recently. I would leave it on the charger for a while, and when I turned it on, the lights would go dead.

So I called PCB, talked to a tech guy, and deduced it was the battery and not the charger/inverter.

So I ordered a replacement battery.

It has been on the charger for a few hours, and when I turn it on, the lights still go dead. A brand new battery, never been used.

The light on the inverter is fine (or whatever the box with the plug is called). It's green when unplugged from the unit, red when plugged in to charge. But it seems like the battery isn't holding a charge.

Is my inverter/charger the actual problem now? How can I test this to find out?

It sounds like an inverter problem, which will require it to be sent in. Unfortunately, there are some symptoms that can be caused by either component, and it is a matter of elimination, sometimes, to diagnose. However, I believe the age of the battery warranted our would soon warrant a replacement anyway.
