The solution to your problem is simple, Kathrynbax.
The battery never comes in fully charged. It's always charged only so you may be able to check if your camera is working. I suggest, you take out your battery and put it to charge for exactly 90 minutes as the manual says. Then I'm sure you won't face any such problems.
Install new batteries.....really! They will just up and die when your camera's on and then there's nothing else you can do. If you have rechargeables....swap them out for any fresh batteries just to close your camera...then put your recharged rechargeables back in. Or put them back in and recharge on your camera dock.
I went to another problem, knowing my camera was stepped on, I messed around with moving the lens part around, barley moving it, and then I tried holding the on/off button and the button to take the pics with, and then put in new batteries and it turned on. I would suggest doing that.
August - this sounds like the same problem I had with my Finepix510. Turns out the new unopened package of batteries I put in weren't fresh enough and weren't working. When I got truly fresh batteries, everything started working just fine again.
