Why wont it turn on and shows error message and wont charge battery?

I bought this camera on ebay and it worked great at first but the camera wont charge the battery, and when i connect it to power, instead of charging it just blinks repeatedly.

I would suggest to use a AC charger and not the USB from a computer. If your battery is discharged to low the USB port will not supply enough amperage to charge the battery. I would definitely start with a new battery, and an external charger. That way you know for sure what works, especially since this is a ""refurbished"" camera. You could look at places like this for your parts. Good Luck"
