This is a guess, but the maintenance battery might have failed. There are actually two batteries in your camera. That is why when it is working properly and you remove the battery, you do not loose the time and all the other settings you have made. Although the non-user changeable battery typically lasts for up to a decade, but they can fail sooner. The camera must be opened up to make the change. You need to take the camera to a repairman or call Nikon USA for an RMA so they can change it for you.

The fault could be either defective batteries or a defective camera. All you can do is to try a full initial battery charge (24 hours) and if that doesn't work return the camera to the retailer for a refund or exchange.

You probably bought a battery that's not original and is not decoded. Nikon uses coded reading of batteries, so you can't put any battery in it.
If it's an original battery with a certificate on it, you should contact your nearest Nikon store.

Your battery may be worn out and is unable to get re-charged. Buy a new battery for your camera, or try your battery in a matching camera to verify that it is depleted, if so try a new/other battery in your camera to verify that you need a new battery.

Charger flashing red indicates the battery is still not full and is in the process of recharging.
Red light steady indicates your battery is fully charged and ready to operate with your Coolpix 5000.
When red light is off it indicates there is no battery inserted or the charger is not pluged in.
