Camera wont turn on - Digital Cameras
You didn't provide much information for troubleshooting, but your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera\015\012which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the\015\012camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with\015\012a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush,\015\012steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen\015\012into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of\015\012the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears\015\012the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced, or the camera may have\015\012a problem that requires professional repair.
If your camera has Li-ion batteries, and you have let the camera sit for some time without using it, chances are that the battery voltage has lowered to the point where the internal circuitry has shut itself down. You cannot charge the battery back up in this case with the normal charger. Buy a new battery and be sure to charge it every month or so.
