I don't have external power supply
Actually, an external supply could help diagnosing the problem.

I use a Nokia plug and I plug and unplug but nothing, still change batteries.
If that Nokia plug fits well, you could wire it to an external battery box with the right polarity and use it as external power. But if you do use that phone charger, it may be easier to get a proper plug from a store.

Sometimes discharged battery's electrolyte oxidaze internal pads for batteries.
This may not be visible to the naked eye ...
This oxidation (the electrolyte), can also cause a short circuit between the pads and overload batteries.
Solution: Attention that the camera is upside down (with  battery hole bottom), and with a wooden stick, cotton and alcohol clean both the  pads and insulation between.If needed you can use small screwdriver for cleaning.Let the alcohol to evapurate  well, and after a while do test.Maybe this help ..
