I have a canon sd630 that appears to be totally dead. I charged the battery. The camera does not show any signs of life at all. The lens cover remains partially open with the lens fully retracted into the body.

I've had similar problems with various versions of this camera. Here's
the fix, if all else fails. These are step-by-step instructions to take
apart and fix the camera's lens error.
Some of The Canon Powershot A530 and A540 cameras are subject to an advisory recall. Seems that a small spring on the battery compartment door can short out the batteries. Suspect this of yours, in that you mention that your batteries aren't lasting long. If your camera is on the list, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following link for more info:
If you drop it this it is one of two:
1) A hardware component in your Camera is broken and need to be replaced.
2) A small power surge caused the camera Controller not to be recognized.
You should send it to maintenance as soon as possible to determine what exactly happened.
