Put rechargeable battery in the wrong way and it is stuck!
I have had the camera (Stylus 720)a few months and this is the second time that I have recharged the battery and placed it in the camera. I obviously have it in wrong b/c I cannot close the door nor can I get the battery out.

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.
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.
I'm having the exact same problem. I was in the middle of zooming on a shot and it froze, so I turned the camera off and on, and now I get the 5-chimes+Zoom Error screen. This is nuts, I've only had the thing for six months, and it was $250 (got the Stylus 730). I *think* I got a replacement plan so that's good. But still... I hope circuit city lets me get a different brand b/c I'm not happy with this now. The only problem I had before was the HORRID shutter delay. I want a model that doesn't have that problem .
When trouble shooting a digital camera, you only have two options:
Battery and Memory Card.
If you are using rechargeable batteries, it is possible that one battery is bad. It is also possible that the charger is bad.
So, buy 4 Alkaline AA batteries and try them.
This will either confirm that your present batteries and/or charger is defective. Or it will confirm that you don't have a battery problem
The only way to know, it to try it.
The same applies for the memory card.
Try another memory card and see if that helps.
Nothing is wrong with the camera or the batteries. Rechargeable batteries of all kinds will self-discharge over time.
Charge them fully (if they are NiMH completely charge and discharge them a few times), and you should see full battery capacity.
