Could be a couple different things. Was the camera dropped or exposed to liquid? If so it may be a problem that needs repair by replacing the damaged parts.

One thing for you to try is to find the small battery door switch beside the memory card slot, is it damaged or missing? Without this switch the camera will not turn on. Put in the battery and with the door open press down the switch gently with a pencil. Now press the power button... does it power?

If it's not that switch then it's most likely the fuse which has shorted out. If you can solder well then you can replace the fuse, they are pretty cheap to buy. Another option is to buy a defective camera online and make one good camera from the two.

If that's not an option you can have somebody repair it for you. If its out of warranty Canon will want $150+ to do it.

DONT throw it in the trash! It's still worth money even if you don't want to repair it, sell it online or sell it to us; we are a digital camera repair business (Google: Darntoothysam com) and would buy it for parts if we can't get the parts to fix it for you.

Hope this helps

Good luck from Darntoothysam com: Affordable digital camera repair

Camera will not turn on. Battery fully charged;

You can give it to an expert for repair, he can repair it for less as there must be just a fuse problem, which can be fixed for a very less amount.

I am trying to charge the camera battery through my pc

The camera does not charge the battery through the USB port. Connecting the camera to a computer drains the battery faster, as the camera has to use juice to communicate with the computer (even if only to say it has nothing to say). Please use the supplied battery charger or a replacement.
