Another thing to try is to clean the battery terminals and any contacts. Use a cotton swab with a small amount of WD-40 or 70% isopropyl alcohol (But not enough to drip or go elsewhere inside your camera! That would be a very bad thing.) to rub the contacts. Use a flashlight to check that they are clean and not corroded. Clean the terminal ends of the batteries that you put in. I have restored a non-functioning digital camera this way before.

If that does not get you to where your camera turns on, it is likely time for repair or replacement.

Lens won't close and On/Off button doesn't work


Even though the battery appears to be charging it may be shot. Some batteries if they run down too far can not be recharged. You need to try a new battery in the camera.

Battery compartment won't open?


Push the cover toward the back of the camera and then toward the end, just as the arrow indicates, then the end of the cover nearest the end of the camera will swing open. Follow the illustration in the "Insert the Batteries" section of the manual (page 12 in my copy).

My Power Shot SX130 IS wont turn on... I dont know why, yesterday was working and all the sudden today I tried to Power On and doesn't do anything. I changed the batteries .... HELP!



Things to check first for a camera that won't turn on are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. Troubleshooting tips on other things that need to be checked may be seen here. These tips won't work for every case, but they're worth a try.

Does there is something happened when you turn on the camera? If you can heard sound made by the len or the camera try to open but turn off in a second? If so, there is something wrong with the lens, and this how to fix camera lens error will be helpful. Else, if the camera are without any reaction you can check it the joint of the camera to battery is well.
