The manual states, "If the battery is left inserted and the camera is not used for a long time, the battery will over-discharge and shorten the battery's life."

'for a long time' is crucial -- of course what does that mean? I take it as to mean months without usage. I don't think one needs to remove the battery from their camera if they are using it every couple of weeks. Surely not weekly. That would probably just wear out the battery bay by removing it constantly otherwise.

I agree. I never remove my battery until time to recharge it. Of course I use my camera daily.

Are you sure it's not a battery issue, though? The battery takes several hours to charge.
It definitely takes many hours to charge mine; probably around 6-8 hours. (Pentax battery)
