Question about Kodak Cameras
I have done all the trouble shooting that I can. I have looked in the owners manual. Which was no help. I have searched online and that hasn't help.
I'm affrays your battery is gone. You could try to measure the voltage it is still giving with a multi meter, but I think it will be at least 1,7 volts less than what is printed on the battery. This means at least one cell in the battery is dead. I can't believe the contacts are dirty or oxidised, because the camera is too young. But if the contacts are not clean, try cleaning them with a dry cloth. If you should buy a new battery, make it a habit to charge it at least every couple of months, even if you only use it once a year. A battery is better off when charged and discharged now and then, then when you keep ik laying in a drawer.

I've had my camera for a long time so I don't think I'll get the option of taking it back and exchanging it but I keep having the same charging problem. I just tried the flash button trick... the green light is on, steady, and holding. I'm not going to touch it any more and I hope that if I leave it this way for a bit it'll charge up.
My advice is to NOT LET THE BATTERY RUN DOWN past half charge, otherwise it won't have enough power to stay on long enough to register the fact that its plugged in to the computer.

As the other person says Nimh rechargable batteries are the best....Also somewhere in the menu system you will find that you need to define which type of battery you are using, this may be the cause...Nikon UK have an excellent after care team if all else fails.

There are three battery type settings in the set up menu: Alkaline, COOLPiX(NiMH) and Lithium. Might be worth looking at. To be continued.

The battery is probably a Li-ion battery and if the voltage gets too low, trying to charge it will lock the battery out as this is a built in safety feature to prevent the battery from charging too fast and causing a fire. You may want to try this. Take the battery and put it in to freezer for about an hour (do not Freeze), and then put it back in your charger and try to charge it. If it does not come back to life then the battery is kaput, and you are going to have to get a new one. You may have to any way as the battery is old and has lost it's ability to be recharged fully.
