PRS-500 battery problem, but the battery's not the problem

Hello forum-goers. I'm hoping someone can shed some light on my issue here.

After I've had my reader for 1.5 - 2 years or so, the battery life really went downhill. Charging it became a weekly activity, and I was certainly not getting thousands of page turns. In fact, the battery would go dead in about a week even if I did not use it at all.

Then I sent it in for the epub upgrade. The battery acted the same when I got it back, so I put in a new battery that I got from smavbattery.com, and there is no change. It doesn't seem to be just a faulty battery indicator, because the device wouldn't boot after it depleted all the way. I'm just wondering if anyone has any idea what this could be. I also wonder if getting the epub upgrade means I can't also trade it in for $50 off a pocket edition.

Thanks.
