D7000 Battery Charger Failed?

I bought the D7000 battery charger right when it came out in Nov 2010. I don't shoot a ton so I probably recharge batteries six or eight times/year.

My battery charger has apparently failed. I say that because when it is plugged in (which it always is), the amber light is on even when there is no battery in it. And when I put in a battery that needs to be charged, the amber light doesn't flash. I put in a battery which was about 2/3 charged (according to the indicator on the camera) for about two hours, and it still wasn't a full battery at the end of that time.

I just picked up a new charger and the amber light is off unless a battery is in it, and when I put in a battery, the amber light flashes until it is charged (and it does charge all the way.

My reason for writing is I'm wondering if others have heard of the charger failing. I've probably had eight DSLR cameras since 2002 and spent three years as a wedding photographer (during which time I charged about eight batteries for each wedding). All of those cameras were Canon and I've never had a charger fail before. This is my first Nikon. Is this common?
