Hi it was my Dad's camera and was given to me when he passed away. As he was ill for some time it could have been twelve or more months since it was either used or charged.
Hi I don't know I would suggest it has been more than twelve months since it has been used never mind charged.
Sorry about your Dad. Because this model has been in production sor so long (about 14 years) this battery may be far past its useful life. The battery is the most likely point of failure. A new on may completely solve the issue.
