BB 9800 top buttons flash only help

Hello. I recently got given a broken 9800. When charger or battery is inserted,the top keypad(red,bb,back,green) light up once and that's it. I opened the phone and discovered it had been worked on before, the onboard batttery by sd card slot is removed. Does anyone know if this is fixable/worth fixing?

Thanks people
