    Welcome to Apug!

    That cap seems corroded. Have you tried grinding the contacts to bare metal?

    With a fine file or fine sanding paper wrapped around a tooth stick.

    By the look of that cap the equivilant thread or bayonet in the camera body and maybe even the other battery-contact inside the body is corroded too. Have a look at these. A fine knive like those with the brake-off blade could help with the thread.
