I have had this camera for three years and maybe used it five times. The thing just won't turn on now. I have tried turning it on with it plugged in and no battery in it, doesn't work. Is that supposed to work?
Should I try buying a new battery since the one I have is the original, but it shows fully charged.
The camera was not dropped or exposed to anything, it is like new, which annoys me more. Kodak was $135 to fix it. Would it be cheaper to take it to a camera store in my town?

see the steps : God bless you If the camera won't connect with your computer, make sure you have the
latest version of the needed software drivers (in your digital camera
package or online from the manufacturer). Check your computer for
conflicts (two devices trying to use the same port); you may need
technical assistance for this one. In some cases you can get things
working again by connecting the digital camera, then turning off the
computer and turning it back on.
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.
Hi, This is lens mechanism problem and lens assembly will be replaced to fix the issue. Lens tries to correct its mechanical error three times then gives up and you see turn power off and on again display in lcd. If camera is under warranty, please call Sony to get it fixed or take camera to local camera repair shop if its out of warranty. Thanks.
Try Power Resetting the Camera. To Power Reset the Camera, First, please turn OFF the Camera. Then, remove the battery pack from the Camera. Then, press and hold the POWER button on the Camera for 30 seconds. Then, reinsert the battery pack and check whether the issue is resolved. If the issue still persists service of the Camera is recommended.
I had t he three beep problem and also the lens was open. I tried batteries - then i noticed the lens was slightly bent - i tried straightening and it snapped and went into place. then i tried turning it on and it was fine and when i turned it off the lens closed.
I would say that if you've had the camera for five years, it's possible that it could be wearing out. My first inclination would be to tell you to try lithium batteries but from the sounds of it, you already have. If that hasn't worked, then it may be time to try a new camera. There are a lot of really nice cameras out there for $200 or less. They'll have a lot of new features and the resolution will be clearer.
One suggestion you may want to try is going to www.canon.com there was an issue posted there with Power Shot A540's involving the battery holder that causes similar issues to what you are describing- if your camera has the serial # starting with the #'s posted online they will repair your camera regardless of the warranty status.
