I try to turn on my M425 and the little blue light flashes a few times and thats all. I have tried the charge the camera and it sometimes takes a few photos then the same problem occurs!
The only thing that seems to work is if I take the batteries out for a few seconds then relplace them. The batteries arent dead as they are charged! I can take a few photos but if I turn it off then it wont go back on again without repeating then above process!

When you say the battery has been stored for two years, I hope you removed it from the camera before storing it. Otherwise, the terminals may have corroded and damaged more than the battery. If nothing is corroded have the battery checked. Sitting unused for that length of time may have shortened the battery's lifetime considerably.
Hi there please follow the steps and let me know the result.
1. Ensure batteries are fully charged & clean the battery connector point in side the battery compartment.
2. Look carefully between the lens and the camera body for any sand, dirt or any damaged etc.
3. Try turning the camera with the lens facing down and shake to dislodge anything stuck
4. Try removing batteries and memory card, wait 5 minutes and refit the battery only.
5. Now turn on camera( with out card ) and see ,if working then fix the memory card & again turn on the camera. If working then fine .
Otherwise format the memory card and fix back in camera again & try. Make sure before format the memory card take a
back up all photos in your computer then format. If no luck then reset or restore the camera setting by pressing Menu key for 2 sec ..
in not done the press both Menu & self time key for 2 - 4 sec.
i hope it will gives you success.
Remove the camera case (about 10 screws) and expose the circuit board that is attached to the camera chassis. Look at top button board (shutter and video buttons). This is also the flash board. The capacitor is attached to the board. The flash board has a serial cable and two wires that connect to the main circuit board. Severing one of the wires will stop the flash from working. After re-assembling the camera, the camera will not take pictures with any of the flash settings. You will see a constant charging flash message every time the shutter button is pressed. Turn off the flash setting on the camera for your camera to operate.
Main power led to on/off switch is crushed and not enough power gets through.
you have disassemble the camera.
I would think first before tring this.
Remove 3 screws on bottom, 1 in battery compartment, and 1 at very top of usb flap (look good).
Now slide the side piece starting at the usb flap then apply pressure to top and away from unit.
now look for 1 silver and three black screws (facing back and front, look good).
See the big red wire leading to main on off switch if it crushed thats the problem.
I replaced it with a longer piece of wire.
Remember to replace battery door first if it fell off during process.
*TEST NOTE: You can place batteries in and place a penny across the bottom to test before you put it back together.
