The VPC-S770R uses standard AA batteries. Chargers for rechargeable AA batteries should be available at just about any department, electronics, or office-supply store. Do NOT try to recharge non-disposable alkaline or lithium batteries. Also bear in mind that the camera itself is not a battery charger. If you want to use rechargeable batteries then they must be charged outside the camera using a separate battery charger.
Yes, rechargeable batteries can and will go bad. You can order a replacement battery from
Two possibilities here. The lens housing is damage, and when you try to zoom it is unable to do so. You would be more inclined to get a message about this as opposed to the camera powering down.

Although rechargeable batteries have 1.2 volts instead of 1.5, they can have more power with higher capacity. I tend to use 18mAh or higher batteries in my camera, especially for zooming, but make sure to use the guidelines for charging and recharging these so they will last a long time.

Yes, the battery that comes with the C-7000 can be recharged. This battery is the Olympus LI-12B Lithium Ion battery and it can be recharged using the LI-10C battery charger. Both the battery and charger are included with the camera.
