Kathy Rossiter if your new battery will not take a charge, you first want to check your charger. Use a multimeter and check the contacts for proper voltage. If the charger works as it should, ask the vendor to replace the battery. Just because it is new to you does not necessarily mean it is new. It may have been discharged below the threshold of taking a new charge. Sometimes those batteries can be "woken up" by using a 9Volt battery and connecting +-+ and - to - from the 9Volt battery to the camera battery for a few minutes.
