Lenovo G50-45 laptop powers up only when plugged in, battery won't charge.

I have a Lenovo G50-45 laptop (AMD) which is around three years old. I used it yesterday evening and shut it down. Today when I turned it on the following happened:

The battery was not charging.
I tried charging with another Lenovo charger of the same spec but the battery was still not charging.
The battery ran out of charge and the system shut down
I pulled out the battery and tried all the useless charge-flushing things but nothing worked, as always.
The system powers on and works as usual with the battery pulled out and connected to AC mains.
The system does not work with the battery put in and connected to AC mains or not.
When I press the power button With the battery in, the LED blinks orange three times.

Could anyone throw some light on what the issue might be? Should I replace the battery?

Thanks

Yes you should, the battery could be faulty. Batteries usually last up to 300-500 full charge cycles. Lucky ones can reach up to 1000 cycles.

Since your laptop is already 3 yrs old, I think it has already passed its life.
