Ruby, try pressing and holding on button or you will have to reset.

Cradle and contacts are fine. Cradle circuit is nothing but a reed relay and few wires, relay closes on proximity to robot's body, therefore no voltage on contacts before robot is close to cradle. There is a thermistor inside of battery, and mine was bad. I removed it and now I am charging the battery from my bench power supply at about 220 ma current, overnight, and it works. Probably the solution is to get a new replacement battery, but the one with the thermistor inside (OEM), easily recognized by the third wire, and all should be fine, assuming that nothing else is wrong with charging circuit or power adapter (12v/1A) Hope this will give you some ideas of where to poke. Once successful, please post your solution.
I had this problem with my Nikon CoolPix S500. The problem was that my step-daughter had dropped it while the lens was out, causing it to get wedged out of alignment. On close inspection, I could actually see that one edge of the lens was protruding just a little more than the opposite edge.
The fix was to gently but firmly press or tap on the edge that's protruding a little more, just to get it sufficiently unstuck for the low-torque built-in motor to retract it properly.
Once it's unstuck, you still need power it off and on a couple of times to reset and recalibrate the in and out positions. Good luck!
I figured out the fix: Take the batteries out, put them back in and close the battery cover. Next, turn on the camera and before it can finish the three beep sequence, open up the battery cover(disconnecting the battery power). Close the battery cover (reconnecting the batteries) and switch on the camera. It may take a couple of tries, but it seems to be a "poor man's reset"
It seems i have the same problem...although my batteries do charge, and i can take pictures. But when I play them back It does this beep beep beep and shuts off and the lens doesnt always close. It's really pissing me off
the 3 beeping sound means that the camera has low battery capacity. the lens is stuck out because there is incorrect battery connection. there is an option on the camera setting for the battery type. try this one: -turn the camera on -click on Menu button -select options using left/right, up/down button -select Set up 2 -Select Battery type -Select Alkaline for non-rechargable or Ni-MH for rechargable -click OK button
this setting should be done when using camera for the first time and whenever you are switching battery types, from rechargable to non-rechargable and vice versa.
