This camera fell down and wont turn on when i tried to put it on,but it indicates charging whenever i put it on charge.Apart from the NP40 750mAH battery,i saw another battery inside the camera, round in shape,just like wrist watch battery,i measured it but it reads(0.342VDC,i dont really know the value of that battery,cos no value was written on the battery.I fix another battery reading 1.5VDC,all to no avail.
Please i need you to tell me the specification of that battery if u know and tell me what to do next.

It seems to me the most obvious thing to look at would be the power switch. I don't think impact would damage the battery unless it cracked or punctured it - and I assume it hasn't since you haven't mentioned that.
Have you checked the switch itself for any damage, and made sure it's making contact when it's switched, and traced the leads from the switch back to the board - or even all the way to the battery? I think you'll find your problem somewhere in there.
The smaller battery should be for storing long term memory - i.e. any configurable settings. Even if that was dead, the camera would still turn on, it just wouldn't remember any settings.
Bruce, you didn't provide a lot of information but I can tell you that the few times this has ever happened on my Nikon D-90, the battery did not charge, would not charge and I had to throw it away, or it was a charger problem.
I've had it happen when I tried to charge it on my corded Nikon Charger and I never got a charging complete indication after charging over night. When I put it in the camera, the camera indicated it was not charged even though the charger indicated it was charging. But, when I put it on a travel charger, it charged in about an hour and worked fine. The next time I put it on the Nikon charger, it worked fine.
I suggest you verify that the battery is good and charged or capable of charging. If it is, then check to make sure the battery contacts are clean both on the battery and in the camera.
If the contacts are clean and you're sure the battery is good and charged, I'd say the next step is to contact Canon. I've heard their customer service is very good.
That means the battery of your camera can't hold a charge. The light on your camera or battery indicating that it's charging flashes whenever it detects any power being wired into the device, not necessarily that the battery is holding power. Depending on what camera model and brand you have, you should contact their customer support for a new battery.
If the camera does respond when you hold down the shutter release, then the internal clock battery may have drained. As the manual says on page 17, charge your main battery, put it in the camera, and leave it be for up to three days.
try to buy similar battery then recharge it. but has you know its circuit board need to be cleaned especially if it is fell in salt water, it will cause problem sooner its components will get rusted hence it will gonna operate with a malfunction.
Main power led to on/off switch is crushed and not enough power gets through.
you have disassemble the camera.
I would think first before tring this.
Remove 3 screws on bottom, 1 in battery compartment, and 1 at very top of usb flap (look good).
Now slide the side piece starting at the usb flap then apply pressure to top and away from unit.
now look for 1 silver and three black screws (facing back and front, look good).
See the big red wire leading to main on off switch if it crushed thats the problem.
I replaced it with a longer piece of wire.
Remember to replace battery door first if it fell off during process.
*TEST NOTE: You can place batteries in and place a penny across the bottom to test before you put it back together.
