Does the battery by itself work i the camera?

There's an FAQ here on how to revive dead batteries. Basically, you need to try 6 times to charge to get enough charge in the battery to be able to fully charge. Check the FAQ for details.

 

I don't let the batteries go completely dead before charging and don't have any problems.

Thanks for that. We didn’t let the camera go fully dead either, but when it wouldn’t charge it did go fully dead

Do you have more than one camera? Swap batteries around and try charging both to see if you can figure out whether it's the camera, battery or charger. Be sure you're using the Arlo charger and cable.
