Default Minolta Maxxum 4 not turning on..

Hi all, I have a problem!!
I was given a Canon powershot last Xmas and love it, so much that I haven't touched my Minolta maxxum4 since then. I of course forgot to take the batteries out, I kept meaning to, just got busy.
So Xmas is coming and I want some nice shots and decided to give the Minolta a clean and check it out. Well it doesn't turn on, I get the flashing battery sign in the display. I cleaned the battery contacts. I checked the 3v batteries and both have a full charge like new, and my dh checked the volts which are also at full +.

Could the batteries still not work because they've been sitting too long? I've tried turning off/on repeatedly like the manual suggests, but no luck. Does this mean my camera is dead now?? It worked fine last year, before it sat unused.

Anyone have any insight??
