Battery went dead while taking photos. I charged the battery. Upon inserting, the camera flashed (weird) but wouldn't power up. Then, the battery charger showed that the battery needed charging, so I did it again. In a few minutes it appeared to be ready, so I repeated the process with the same result. I thought maybe I ruined the battery, so I bought a new one.
Same result. I would think it's a software problem, but there's nothing I can do to get this **bleep** thing to light up!
