Sometimes if rechargeable batteries have not been used for a bit they
will not charge like they should.  The best thing you can do at this
point is to charge it to full then fun the batteries flat.  Do this a
few times and I bet the charge cycle will improve.  Also freezing the
batteries then charging also has been known to help the situation.

You should be able to use a tool such as package buddy to download the
package off of your newt.  Another option would be to move it to a flash
card (most will allow this).  If it is locked then you just get
eeunprotect installed then you can move it as it will bypass this
protection and allow you to download or move the package.
