People have asked you about the battery multiple times since the very first response.
All the symptoms you are seeing are in line with what would be expected with a bad battery.

It is time for you to buy a multimeter. Even a very inexpensive one is a very useful tool to test many different types of things.
Here is one for just $1 USD : Ebay VoltMeter

This is one of my favorites: https://www.radioshack.com/products/radioshack-22-range-pocket-digital-multimeter
It is in a case and there is nothing to lose since it is all attached and goes in the case.

If you are in the US, you could get one today at places like, RadioShack, Home Depot, Lowes, AutoZone (or any other Automotive shop). Many are under $20.
Lots of nice inexpensive ones also available at HarborFreight starting at under $5 USD.

If you plan to stay in this hobby, you need a multimeter.
