Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
The battery may have failed *and* shorted out also. That's rare, but it can happen. I suggest considering replacing the battery.
At least, remove the battery, then try plugging the camera in to the camera, and see if the camera will run that way, even if you don't have a replacement battery yet.
If you need help locating a replacement battery, let me know and I will research sources.
