I have quite a few flight power lipos that have puffed up just from aging.
Thanks Tom. The cam has been used less than two months, so age is not to blame. The fall might have damaged the protection circuit, but I'm just speculating.
We'll see if replacing the battery revives the cam.
I also want to add, that dealing with Diana has been an absolute pleasure - she's been prompt, courteous, and accommodating of my request (I just ordered and got a great
deal on a second cam with a spare battery for my dead cam).
