Depends on the amount of use and the amount of turning it on and off. Typically, not very long. The best rechargable batteries I have found for longevity are the Rayovac Hybrid rechargeables. They last a long time and when you buy them, they are already charged and ready to go. I bought my mom a new camera for Christmas and bought her this with the charger.

There are (2) common (non-terminal) issues that cause this problem.
1) the contacts inside the camera have become oxidized...., using the eraser on the end of a pencil..., rub (clean) the contacts inside the cameras battery compartment.
2) Modern Li-Ion batteries often last only (3) years...,(if you have good ones)...., so what happens is that as the batteries reach the end of their life span they quite often will work one day and not the next (but show that they are fully charged). Thus if you only have the (1) battery, you will not know if it is the battery, the charger or the camera. Go to your local camera store (with your camera & battery) and see if they are willing to put a new battery in your camera..., if it powers up it's your battery or charger. ask if they will then try to charge your old battery on their charger for 1/2 an hour..., this is enough of a charge to find out if your camera will turn on using the old battery.
Now you must ask yourself, if I need to purchase a new battery of charger..., is it worth it.
Yes the can go bad.
I still have 9 year old Kodak lithium batteries in good condition, nut I know sometimes my rechargeable batteries last no longer then a year. It is a shame that some camera brands only give a 90 day warranty on the batteries.
To keep your rechargeable batteries in a good condition, give them a charge at least every 3 months. Or always a day before you need the camera. Never try to use speed chargers. I still have a charger capable of charging full within 15 minutes. The barrettes are hot, and when charged that way after 10 or 20 times they are dead.
Just use the charger that came with your camera.
But if you only can shoot a few shote with your battery, buy a new battery.
sometimes the charger can become loose in either the camera or the plug so try buying a new plug and if it still doesn't work then it is a problem with the camera and you will have to ask the people you bought it from
This camera takes AA batteries. I don't know if the batteries now in your camera are rechargeable or not. Apparently you didn't get a charger with it. You can't charge batteries in the camera, they need to go into a separate charger. You could simply put in a set of alkalines. DON'T use cheap zinc or
"long life" AAs, though. They are not up to the task, and can leak and
corrode your camera.
If you want to use rechargeables, then you can buy them anywhere. NiMH batteries with a capacity of 2700mAH are available, and these will last longer, per charge, than name brand alkalines, as well as being rechargeable. You can buy these with a charger fairly cheaply now (though they obviously cost more than disposables). You will probably want two sets, one to be on charge while you use the other.
First check the charger . If the charger is fine , then you need to check the charging jack on the Camera . Last thing will be replacing the battery . I would think at last that the battery is dead [ can't be recharged anymore ] .
Occasionally the batteries in the camera die- so no amount of charging will fix that, but does the camera work when you have it plugged in to charge? Most cameras will run from the charger , even if the battery is dead. If it runs from AC (wall plug), but not battery, it probably the battery, but occasionally it is the circuit in the camera that charges the battery. The last resort is an external battery charger (not all cameras have them), but if you can charge the battery elsewhere, then it is the circuit in the camera- you'll have to buy an external charger if one exists
