The charging light gives one quick blink and then stays off when I plug it into a power source. I tried the following without success so far:
Plugged directly into Nintendo wall AC adapter.
Replaced the battery.

The board might be dead if you already changed the battery, for some people they had to press the sync button again to wake up the pro controller.
Didn't work for me, the controller works only if it's plugged in a power source

my guess is that the chip on the board controlling the charging function is dead, even though you can still power it with the power source plug in.
