Hey Lizzie,
 
It looks like you're not the only one having problems with this camera turning on.
 
How did you clean the battery contacts after your battery melted? Are the contacts damaged at all?
 
Are you getting any red lights or blinking lights along the base of the lens?
 
Things to try:
 
1.) Make sure you're using two of the same using alkaline batteries (not heavy buty) and they're inserted into the camera correctly. Even if you think you have 'em in there correctly, check again.
 
2.) Everything I've read says to use Energizer batteries, but it looks like [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-nduqfVYuxI|these people had luck] with Panasonic. Not that it should really matter.
 
3.) Make sure the batteries are fitting snuglytight between the contacts.
3.) Make sure the batteries are fitting snuglytight between the contacts.
 
Many people are having the same problem you are, so let us know what you try next! Good luck!
