I did not use my Nikon Coolpix S3 for quite some time. I had left the battery inside the camera. And did not charge the camera for while. Recently I tried switching it on and I found (i) the camera comes to life but the lens cover does not slide in (ii) many of the buttons are not working.(iii) the charging LED does not glow when I put the camera to charge. I checked the battery and it appeared alright to the naked eyes. Please help. Bidyut Roy
