Yes. Like all rechargeable batteries they don't last forever and four years is longer than I'd expect.
Replace them with new batteries. You need a 3v lithium ion CR-V3 and if you're in the UK I highly recommend buying them from the Small Battery Company, but they are widely available. Avoid generic "no-name" brands as good quality examples are not very expensive.

Sounds like you will need to format the memory card. This will permanently erase all the data from the card and then you will be able to use it again. To format the card: Press the Menu button - right arrow to setup - right arrow to format option. You will see format yes or no. Choose Yes and press ok. This will clear the Picture error message and the card can be used again. The picture error message indicates that this image is now corrupted and unable to be viewed through the camera.
Format your camera's internal memory and also format any memory cards you insert.
Use a program called Recover4All to see exactly what is in your camera's internal memory.
Then insert a memory formatted memory card and take some pictures. see if they will upload.
It is a possiblity that the batteries were weak and caused the camera to shut off while saving the picture. Try using a card reader to load the picture into your rcomputer.
I have run into this before and sometimes there is nothing that can be done to save teh picture.
