I assume you've already gone thru the obvious check and proposed fixes covered in the user manual (battery replacement, contact cleaning, etc). I did all that to no avail after dropping it about 1m onto a concrete floor last nite - after which it refused to power up.

There was no obvious mechanical damage other than a ding on the
rear corner of the battery box door. After disassembly, seeking interior damage, I found a deformed piece of plastic near the door
latch strike that was preventing the door closure switch next to the "MENU" button from fully operating. Some careful tweaking and making a note to push the latch fully closed after use fixed it.

This switch must be operated (opened) in order for the camera to
run. You can verify this on a working A570 by pulling the door latch
partway open, while keeping the door closed by hand, and trying
to power up.

If you have Magic Lantern installed on your camera and it won't turn on, all I had to was re-format the SD card. Works perfectly now. You just need to get rid of ML.

I dropped my canon powershot SD 4500 IS and now it won't turn on! It's survived countless other falls just fine, and would turn on immediately then. All times, including this time, have been when...


Really!....you've dropped your camera "countless" other times and now you're concerned because this time, it won't turn on!!! You're not sure what else to do?!!! How about not dropping your camera. How about using the wrist strap. Your dropping luck has run out...your camera does not have nine lives.
