Question about Cameras
You won't be able to diagnose that without opening it and doing a visual inspection and then maybe follow with a continuity tester. it is likely a cold solder joint (bad connection) on the circuit board... or a broken wire going to the batteries... or just oxidation on the battery connections.

I have the same problem, but there is a internal battery. It is next to the other battery. It is a 2016 3.0v battery next to the hinge.

You have to change the 'battery type' in the settings menu to match the type of batteries you're using. I hadn't used the camera in months because of crappy battery life, when I finally read the manual and found that there was a setting for either NMH or Li etc.

had a similar issue with my Pentax, it would power on and power back off. Tried playing with it for a while and it never recovered. Chances are its time to replace it. These new electronics are jam packed with lots of mini moving parts and are prone to excessive wear over time. they're are no servicable parts inside them unfortunately. I would try ebay for a reasonable replacement camera.
