Does it charge normally? A multi-meter might be helpful to test the battery.

It seems to charge normally. The multi-meter gives me 8.3V.

In the absence of another battery or a smart charger to check the battery capacity, would you be able to find a compatible AC adaptor? If the camera switches on with this, you could rule out the defect is in the camera and try a new battery - of course, this also will not be a 100% solution, because it he camera's battery contacts are damaged it will not solve your problem with a new battery.
