It a battery is drained to 0% for a long time it will eventually die after some time.

That's why you always should use swallow charge.

And if you want to store a battery for a long time, charge it up to 50% and put it in a dry and not to warm environment.

Sure you connected the charger right?

Li-ion battery packs are supposed to have circuitry that prevents the li-ion cells from completely discharging, referred to as "deep discharge". If the voltage reaches a certain threshold it can be permanently damaged and never be able to charge again. But under normal operation this shouldn't happen because the battery circuitry will shut down before that threshold. If you let a severely drained battery sit for a year or two, it can drain below the threshold. But I'm not sure what's wrong with your battery. If for some reason it's been drained beyond the limit and it now won't charge, that isn't a good sign. Like killer said, make sure everything it connected properly, that's about all you can do.
