Solid red light on battery

I’m outside of the three years but I went to use my mower the other day and it worked for about 10 minutes and now there’s a solid red light on the battery. When I put it on the charger, the charger shows 100% and the battery continues to show a red light. I took it off the charger and it’s still a solid red light. Any tips or tricks or is the battery just done?

A couple of "tribal knowledge" kind of things to try.

Place the battery in the fridge for a couple hours and then place it on the charger to see if that might help.

Others have dropped their battery onto a hard surface from around 6" and that seems to reset something inside. Drop it on the end that doesn't have the light.

3rd way is to unplug the charger, place the battery on the charger, and plug the charger back in to see if that doesn't reset something. (The only "official" way.)
