WG-III won't turn on or charge

My WG-III went dead during a photo shoot. I thought it was the battery, however it will not turn on when plugged in either. Nothing at all happens when it is plugged in, no indicator lights, no display, nothing. I have seen other questions on this same topic without answers that seemed to resolve the issue. Just to avoid the same questions: (1) yes, the battery is in correctly. (2) yes, I have tried various cables and none work. (3) yes it was correctly sealed during underwater shooting.

I have not used the camera many times and the photos I was taking when the camera died came out perfectly.

Any help would be appreciated!
