Most of the time it is the battery, or the battery contacts. Make sure, when you place the battery on the charger, the charger acts like the manual says. If the charger does not starts with a slow blinking light, something is wrong. If it does not give any light, check the power (cord and outlet) on the end of the charge, the light should burn continues.
When you are not sure the battery is good, try mother battery.
It also can be the contacts are not free or oxidised. Check the contacts on the battery and in the camera, if they are clean and shiny. Just a spec of dust, or a very small pice of paper on one of the contacts cab spoil all the fun. You could clean the contacts with a dry cloth, or a cotton swab. Never use anything sharp in or close to a camera.
After you replaced the battery, try again. If nothing (not even a new battery) works, contact a Nikon certified service centre. Or visit the dealer.
Completely dead? Have you checked the batteries? Did you try some fresh batteries? Did you check the contacts from the batteries and in the camera. They should be clean and shiny. eventually clean with a dry cloth, not with a sharp tool. Were you making lots of pictures in a short time? It could be the camera was over heating and (temporary) shut down. Leave it for a little while and try to use it again. I hope by the time you read this,the problem was solved.
A couple of things First if batteries were left in the camera the contact surface down inside the camera may be corroded and need cleaning check this with a flashlight. If the battery contact is dark black then it might require some aggressive cleaning. What I use is a piece of light sandpaper formed over a pencil and taped to it set it down inside and spin it lightly to remove as much of the black stuff as possible a Qtip and alcohol will clean out the dust and other partials. Clean off the battery door and clean off the batteries (because you had them in the camera) install the batteries again. If it comes on and works great if it come on but doesn't work correctly then you need to work the camera in.
Working the camera in by turning everything to manual mode including the lens set the ISO speed at 100 aperture 1 stop down from wide open. Set your shutter speed at 1/125 and release the shutter do this three time, set at 1/250 and do it again three times then set to 1/500 and do it three times and again until you reach the cameras fastest shutter speed then back down again. Listen to the sound of the shutter you should hear it increase and decrease in speed. In fact the more you use it the better it will sound.
If the camera has recently been dropped you may have lens damage that
is preventing it from powering up. If it's something simple, a power-down reset may help. Turn the camera off, remove the battery, let the camera set for at least 30 minutes, then replace the battery and power up. If it hasn't been dropped your
may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery
contacts inside the camera which can
prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera.
Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and
wipe the camera contacts firmly with
a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush,
steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of
the batteries and place them back in the camera and give them a full
charge (assuming that you are using rechargeable batteries). This
the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced or the
camera may have
a problem that requires professional repair.
The internal battery is bad. It has to be replaced. Contact your local Sony service center, but
if they ask too much, you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
and I will give you a good price.
I work in Sony service center.

It may be that the contacts on the lens is dirty, follow the directions, by using a clean pencil eraser (I would also suggest to use alcohol and clean the contacts after using the eraser). Also to remove the date button battery and the other batteries, then turn on the camera (with all batteries removed). Then put the batteries back in.
It occurred lately with reloadable NiMh-batteries.
When I put in some alkaline batteries I had no problem.
I cleaned the contact surfaces of the NiMh-batteries and the contact surfaces in the camera. Up till now I have had no problems.
