Are you sure the battery is fully charged? are you sure you did remove the USB cable?
When your camera is still connected to a charger or computer you can't switch it on.
And even fairly new batteries, can stop working.
Try to charge the battery several times, but if after a few attempts nothing changes, I think you need a new battery.
cameras are WEIRD!!!! I have watched brand new, regular size personal camera eat regular batteries in just a couple pictures, then work fine with lithium batteries. Also..cheap batteries are just getting cheaper, so as it may of worked fine 2 years ago, could just be not so good batteries. If your not using lithium batteries, id try that first, will run you 10 bucks for 4 AA's, but thats better than the flat rate fee a shop would charge you to look at it first.
A blinking green light means the charger is charging the battery. A steady green light (same LED) means that charging is complete. If the light never stops blinking and we assume that your charger is working correctly, you may have a defective battery. Rechargeable batteries do not last forever. After a few years, there ability to take and hold a charge declines. It may be time to buy a new battery.
Have you updated the firmware? According to Nikon, when the Rechargeable Li-ion Battery EN-EL10 is inserted in the camera and charged, charging sometimes did not stop after the designated amount of time had passed. Usually, you'll receive the message "Battery Exhausted" if this is the problem... but you could also have a completely dead camera as well.
See Nikon's website, download updated firmware to your camera and install a NEW battery. http://support.nikonusa.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/16873
It almost sounds like the battery won't hold a charge anymore which means you need a new battery. Since the camera isn't quite a year old yet I'd suggest contacting Nikon and seeing if they'll do anything for you before you buy a new battery.
Since this camera is fairly new, it may be worth your while to go to the http://www.nikon.com website and call the support repairs department. Even if the camera is not under warranty, you may be able to get repairs for little or nothing. This may depend on if it is a common problem. Before you call, make sure the battery is either new or charged fully. If the camera has been dropped, accidentally got water inside, or other damage in most cases will void all kinds of warranties. If the camera simply stopped working with full charge or new batteries, then you indeed should call Nikon.
Your camera may be faulty. Or you might not be "in focus". The D90 in any of the auto modes won't take a picture if the 'in-focus indicator' isn't on.
If that indicator is blinking, then it means that it is not able to focus on the subject. It's all in the user manual.
