Put rechargeable battery in the wrong way and it is stuck!

I wonder how good your rechargeable batteries are-even these lose their ability to recharge fully after a while. Try some non rechargeable good quality batteries in it and see if it then works properly.
I would strongly suggest new, I mean NEW batteries, first.
You may be confident with your current batteries, but don't trust any rechargables you have, as they lose their 'power' (ability to supply enough current at the nominated voltage).
Also, don't trust any cheap batteries you have, definately no carbon type batteries.
Go buy some new Alkaline batteries (Energizer or Duracell, or some cheap Panasonic or Varta alkalines) and then we'll go from there.
This is an important step. Sorry if I'm stating the obvious, but a far far majority of digital camera faults and power related.
Let us know how this works out.

Try putting in regular batteries and see if it will turn on. The rechargeable batteries might be over-taxed and won't recharge. My Olympus camera works just as good on regular batteries as on the rechargeable ones. It is easier to come up with regular batteries than having to always run to the docking station to recharge the original batteries. I hope this works for you.
A camera rep told me that use about 2500mi (?) batteries instead of the 900 I was using otherwise the batteries will be depleted with just one picture. Digital cameras or any other digital piece of equipment needs the extra power. Make sure that your charger will charge the 2500 power ones fully.
