the battery can only be reconditioned if it is not working properly due to a scale build up on the plates of the battery, if a cell is shorted out ,it will have no effect to "recondition it" . if a battery needs to be reconditioned to work properly it is probably close to the end of its life cycle and it will be a temperary fix

I suggest you query the following parties:

The bottom link is to a New Zealand company. The top link certainly offers repair.

Vector is a "Smart" charger. And won't charge a completely "dead" battery when old "not-smart" chargers would. How old is the battery?
You could take the battery somewhere and have it checked as to whether it's "good" or not before you blame the charger.

Just a guess here. Sounds like the battery might have been left uncharged for a while and could need to be replaced. Lead acid batteries need to be kept fully charged as much as possible to prevent them failing (the chemistry begins to change quite quickly and irreversibly if the voltage gets too low, and they will then not recharge).
Top-up charge every couple of months if not being used to prevent self discharge from causing this. Always recharge promptly after use.
If you have a voltmeter, check the battery voltage, should be above about 12.4 v to prevent deterioration. Voltage should only drop slightly when light is switched on if the battery is good. Charger might be self protecting if battery is faulty.
These batteries are reasonably priced and very common, be careful to connect the right way round if you are replacing or you can destroy the electronics!
You might be able to connect a new battery (observe polarity!) to test it works before you buy. Check that the batt voltage rises slightly when the charger is connected to make sure the problem is not caused by a charging fault.
