I’ve switched outlets and even tried my friends charge cord. The led lights up but the system doesn’t hold a charge.

Hold down the sleep button until it shuts down (12-15 seconds) Walk away for a while. Leave it plugged in. Don’t unplug it and plug it back in as that will wake it up. Just leave it off and plugged in. Try powering it on after about 10-20 minutes.
