The fault is still in the camera
Are you able to get to the menu on the camera still?

I can still use the menu when it is on the charger
It points to the battery as faulting, its not able to give enough power to the camera. It can be the mainboard in the camera, but this is only known once the battery has been replaced.
you can get a replacement battery via my link below
Click me to open
If after putting in this new battery you still have the issue, then the camera will need to be replaced sorry. But generally it is a faulting battery that's the cause.
If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
