Considering that the camera was fine when you last used it and it's been quite a while, I would suggest that you try powering up the camera with the AC converter. All Cameras have the ability to run on a battery bypass through a power brick of some kind and then a cable attaching to the camera for power. That would eliminate a bad battery.
Look for a secondary battery that is usually a button battery used to maintain camera data when stored. It's possible that this button battery is dead and stopping other functions to operate.
If that doesn't help, leave the power plugged in and locate the "reset" button your camera uses and try resetting all your user adjustments to factory specs. NOTE that the camera needs to be in the "ON position when attempting a reset.
Your users manual should assist you in functioning with all of the (above) suggestions.
Again, with the background info you gave me, I'd try the most obviously solutions first.

If you read one of my previous answers on a dead Cam, I mentioned on board fuses. They are tiny and usually white with a letter on them like "A". Check it with a meter for open circuit, if it has no reading then ther lies the first problem. Second problem is what caused the first problem...could have been moisture. Make sure your battery charger can accept 230v even though it steps down to something like 6.9 or 7.8v
Chargers are quite cheap on ebay etc.

A law suit was filed against Samsung for the SC models including your D23. in accordance with the class action settlement, Samsung has agreed to repair or replace the effected models for zero cost including shipping and insurance. visit this website or call Samsung repair @ there 1-800 number. Samsung also agreed to refund your money if you paid to have the unit fixed yourself or if you purchaced another camcorder to replace the faulty samsung. I called and they e-mailed me a UPS label to print out and shipping costed nothing. takes about two weeks for the repair and then it will be delivered @ your door like new:)
