You have no idea as to the danger that thing has become. It is the reason the airlines are considering banning them as carry-on items. Do not try to fix it, and do not throw it in the trash. Put it in a old METAL toolbox with a locking lid. Take it to your phone store. ( Most states require all battery sellers, must provide disposal. ) I know this is not the answer you wanted, but I learned the hard way.
