    It's telling you the battery is knackered, which you verified is correct by the fact it only holds half an hour charge. Batteries can only be charged/discharged a number of times before they lose amp-hours and need replacing. If you overcharge batteries (eg. by forgetting to unplug at night) then this is another factor that severely reduces their life.

    Basically, it's not an error. You do actually need to buy a new battery for it.
