Does the Odyssey have low voltage protection? Meaning it won't charge until it reaches some minimal level? Try connecting another battery and the charger? Or possibly the charger wont charge until and minimal voltage is reached?
I left the master on a few months ago (Odyssey 680) and charged it the next day, but it wouldn't turn over more than 2-3 blades, so ordered a new Odyssey... put the old battery on the charger for the heck of it a couple weeks later, and that battery now seems fine... bah.

I had issues with my Odyssey batteries in the past and the
issue was the battery voltage seemed to drop after not flying
but once a month on average. The starter would barely turn the
motor and if it didn't start on the first try, I'd have to put
the charger on for a few hours.
I checked my system for possible current draw and couldn't
find any. I eventually found a loose weak connection at the
starter motor, but even having the battery sit with little
use, I still had an issue with some weakness. I finally bought
a battery tender which I leave hooked up all the time and I
hook it up after each flight. It always spins the motor with
lots of energy to spare.
The guys at Odyssey said that the battery should maintain
somewhere around 12-12.5 volts when just sitting as I recall.
I would call them and maybe they will help out with the cost
of a replacement if its fairly new.
Also, when the master has been left on by accident and the
battery goes dead, it can be recharged and brought back to
