I have only owned the camera for two years and have used it maybe 4 times. We moved and left the battery in and now the camera will not turn on. I bought a brand new battery thinking it was the problem, but it still will not turn on. Any suggestions.:?

New NiMH batteries sometimes will not work until discharged and re-charged a couple of times. I don't know what kind of charger you have, but I recently could not get my camera to turn on with a new set of NiMH's (after charging). I put them thru a manual disharge with a MAHA 204 charger, and they started working. If you don't have a charger with a discharge feature, you can put a 1/2 watt (or larger) 5 ohm resistor across the cell for a few hours or put it in a single cell flashlight to discharge it, then put it thru a charge cycle. Do that 2 or more times, and it will probably start working.
