I have done the date removal but i have also used the camera successfully several times since doing so.

Any ideas?

UPDATE:

iv also tried putting the dateon firmware back on,

It does still work as a web cam

I can still use USB to acces files and folders
It sounds to me like maybe your battery will not take a charge properly. I'd check the voltage on the battery terminals after you attempt to charge it to see if it really IS charged. Either the battery or the charging circuit could be faulty.
