Please also clean the battery contacts in the camera. Try this with a dry cloth or cotton swabs. When the oxide is difficult to remove, use a little electric contact oil, but make sure you remove it complete, because these oils work coisive in th long run.
Try removing the camera battery. Then hold the "start" button down for about 1 minute. (This may do a reset and restore defaults) Then replace battery, cross your fingers and try again. It worked for me!
Put the camera in the freezer for a couple of minutes. If you manage to remove the battery and memory card, wait for couple of hours so the condensation evaporates. After that you will need to clean the contacts for battery and memory card.
This cleaning process is very delicate and sensitive. Cleaning lens should be done by authorized or pro camera technician. I suggests you to bring it to the nearest cam service center because they have appropriate tools to open the camera and properly clean it. A single failure or error on cleaning it by yourself might give fatal result to your camera.
This is pretty common. Get some small pliers, which are known as "duckbill" needle-nose pliers. They're flat, needle-nose pliers which will allow you to stick the tips into the small space on top and bottom of the stuck battery, and gently wiggle it out. If it's really, really wedged in, you may pull off the end cap of the battery, if you're not careful. At that point you'd still need to remove the battery's remains, and get yourself a new one (battery, not camera). I've saved several customer's cameras this way. Good luck.
