I just posted a problem and solution for this unit.
In short the connection goes bad between the upper battery contacts and the metal
spikes that go through the case and make contact with the main circuit board in the
front half of the unit.
I simply used a pocket flat screw driver to twist the battery spring so it would hopefully
"file" into the nail head.
If that doesn't fix it you may have to take the unit apart and bend the metal contact fingers up
so that they make better contact with the "nails" from the back half of the case.
I would also take a pocket knife and scrap the nails and the spring metal to improve the contact.

I just fixed mine 10 minutes ago....

Sounds like electrolytic capacitor dried up needs curing, which is power on capacitor and left it absorb some moisture in humidity on power. Some time a few minutes, hard cases may take a few days.

I can't turn the camera on anymore


I dont have a definite solution, but I would;

- clean the power contacts on the battery and the camera with a moist Q-tip

- leave the battery out for a day or so, maybe more if you have time. Make sure the battery is charged again (maybe just put it on for an hour or so) and re-try.
