can you look inside the battery compartment and see if anything is in the way?

Take a close look at your batteries. There are two small catches and one may be broken or missing. If this is the case see if you can get a replacement set from GoPro. These catches are removeable and can be swapped with a small socket-driver.

Right, check your battery that works and you will see a little ramp that allows the battery to lock in place on either side of the battery.
Now on the battery that does not work I suspect that one of these ramps are broken and preventing the battery from locking into place. I have added this photo. You see the ramp where my finger is placed, there is one on either side of the battery. This is where I suspect the damage is located.Battery Catch.jpg
