Hi, thank you for contacting My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your camera question.

Expert:  Russell H. replied 4 days ago.

I am sorry to hear that! I advise these measures:

- let me know the model # of the battery that you bought as a replacement, please.

- let me know the voltage or V rating of the charger that you bought as a replacement, also.

- And, please try cleaning the terminals in the battery compartment, after removing the batteries, first by rubbing off with a fresh pencil eraser, then by wiping the terminals off with cotton swabs moistened in rubbing alcohol, then letting them dry off for 5+ minutes with the battery compartment door open (- and meanwhile, please examine the interior for any sign of any problem!), then try turning the camera On again.

Please let me know how that goes.

Thank you.
