Well I should've worded it differently I don't really know, I'm just guessing since in my experience name brand electronics usually work even with dead batteries and it's cheaper made ones that don't if the battery doesn't work but if Nintendo cut corners to not let power into the gamepad if the battery is dead then yeah it's not necessarily dead so you better call Nintendo and see what support tells you.

If it's the battery it's a very simple process, you just need to change it. My battery seems to be working fine, I haven't felt a big drop in usable time in a long time so hopefully I'm good. Most of my Nintendo products do in fact have Nintendium but I have indeed gotten a few that seemed to have passed without being sprinkled with the magic Nintendium, hopefully that wasn't your case.
