Hero 2 wont turn on?

I bought my hero 2 way back in the day.   Used it once and never took it out of the box again.   I wanted to fire it up and see if I can put it to good use.    I charged it for 24 hours.  The red light is solid.   Tried to turn it on and nothing.    Tried removing the battery and leaving it for a few hours.  Nothing.    Not sure what my next step is.  Can anyone help?  Thanks!

Might just be the battery is old and can't hold a charge. You can get a cheap replacement on Amazon or eBay. Also, you should run the update just to be sure the firmware is correct.
