I'm presuming that the camera uses a special battery that is user replaceable?

Does the charger have any lights that come on when it's supposed to be charging?

Do you have a multimeter to measure the voltage that is present on the charger output pins?

If it's still fairly new then a return to the store to let them troubleshoot (assuming they know anything) would be in order.

Just some thoughts to check things with.

It may be time for a new battery. LI type batteries don't last forever and eventually will not hold a charge.

Pretty cheap to replace both the battery and the charger if you choose to do so.
