Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
Did the old battery leak? or is it just obviously not good, the camera not turning On for very long before turning Off again, or flash or major functions not working though the camera turns On? let me know, and I will advise you and provide information appropriately. Thanks.

That sounds like it might need a new battery, but the camera might be bad too.

First examine the old battery - it is likely to be a small flat square or rectangular battery under a hatch on the camera's back. Did it leak at all?

If not, then this is a replacement for it:

or this one:

the first one being about $7, the second about $12.

If you need further help, let me know. I will help further as needed.
