Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

I will need to ask some questions about the camera, please:

How old is the camera? in months or years since you bought it.

Has the camera been dropped or otherwise subjected to mechanical shock(s) in its lifetime?
Has the camera been operated in or subjected to, temperatures below 32 degrees F (freezing point) or above about 100 degrees F ?
Has it ever been subjected to a humidity higher than 85 % or gotten wet ?
Has the camera been operated in a gritty or sandy environment, such as a beach, a seaside, a construction site, or the like?

Reply to me and I will offer advice.

(I regret that I am not able to offer Live Phone Call service at this time; However, your request is still open to other Experts in this category, and one of them may pick up on it at any time.)

I am glad to hear that you have taken good care of your camera... that always helps. Though built well, digital cameras are rather delicate in some ways, esp. when compared with old-time film cameras.

Now, how old is the battery or batteries, or battery pack?

new -out of package batteries, new out of package scan card

error tells me to turn off and then turn on camera - never had that message before - really misusing my camera - only local camera shop/sales & repair is no longer operating in my town

Did you have the same problem with the older batteries before these new batteries?

- if not, then try charging up the new batteries first, continuously on the charger, for at least 5 hours. Then see whether that (a treatment recommended for problems with new off-the-shelf batteries in many cases) makes the camera well-powered enough to work. If it works after that, you will probably not have to put the batteries on the charger for 5 hours continuously ever again - this applies to new off-the-shelf batteries only, not those that have been in-use for some time.

OK... your camera appears to have developed a defect with sheer age.

Try removing the batteries, and leaving the camera on a (dry, non-humid, non-dusty) shelf for overnight. Then put the batteries back in and try the camera again.

Then try cleaning the terminals in the battery compartment, after removing the batteries, first by rubbing off with a fresh pencil eraser, then by wiping the terminals off with cotton swabs moistened in rubbing alcohol, then letting them dry off for 5+ minutes with the battery compartment door open, then try turning the camera On again.

After those measures, if they fail, it is a decision between replacing the camera, and perhaps having it service-repaired. Let me know how it goes and what option you would want to pursue (if you do come to those choices.)
