- Sony pcg-505fx won't run with battery

battery of the notebook died, which seems logical (lasted a couple of
years). I've ordered a new battery from eBay with Panasonic cells (the
high capacity one).
The notebook ran fine for about a few weeks, running on AC and the new
battery. The charging led kept blinking, however I didn't give it much
After a few weeks that notebook simply won't work with a battery. It
started off with that it won't boot with a battery, only with AC. After
a while it won't at all if the battery was plugged in.
Will appreciate any help.

It has been noted by others that non-Sony batteries exhibit this same
problem. Apparently the Sony batteries have some proprietary charging
circuitry that is missing in non-Sony batteries and these batteries
simply do not recharge properly.
