Default [Q] New battery not charging

I bought a stock samsung battery for my galaxy s3. I am trying to charge it but it is not moving forward at all. I've powered off the phone, plugged in the battery and then plugged in a usb cord to charge it.

The results are the same no matter where I charge it.

I've tried two different AC adaptors and a usb cord to the computer.

When I plug in the power source, the phone vibrates once, shows the galaxy s3 logo, displays a battery charging status showing 0% charged. The battery is filling up green indicating that it's charging. It will perform the animation of filling the battery twice then the screen goes blank.

I've left it plugged in for a while now but it doesn't seem the be actually charging. I cannot turn the phone on with it plugged into a power source or not.

If I put the old battery back in, everything is fine.

I'm running the latest cyanogenmod m4 release.

The new battery you got is obviously a dud. Replace it
