After about a week of not using the camera, I tried to turn it on, it would not turn on. Ok so I tried to charge the battery but instead of a solid red light coming on a blinking red light came on. After leaving the battery on the charger for about 4.5 hours the camera still will not turn on. What is wrong with this camera? It is brand new...I haven't even had it for a month yet.

I have had mine for over 3 years and this just started happening. I bought a new battery and it seemed to fix the problem for about a week but is doing it again. It seems like it won't fully charge now like it formerly did!
I'm guessing you tried to turn it on way too soon and fried the circuits. A camera with fresh water damage should be buried in a bowl of dry rice for a week before even attempting to turn it on. Salt water damage?....chances of a complete recovery are slim to none.
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.
This truly depends on the make and model of your camera. If it uses a rechargeable pack, make sure to fully charge the battery and try it. If this still doesn't work, try plugging it in the computer via USB. If it turns on, then your battery pack may be causing the problem. I would suggest you to bring it to your nearest service center for them to check it out, especially if you still have warranty and so they can replace the battery pack. Some cameras have a reset button at the very bottom (or look into your camera's manual if there is such a thing for your camera) which could be an option as well.
Does there is something happened when you turn on the camera? If you can heard sound made by the len or the camera try to open but turn off in a second?
If so, there is something wrong with the lens, and this how to fix camera lens error will be helpful.
Else, if the camera are without any reaction you can check it the joint of the camera to battery is well.
Some camera will not turn on (Turn on but not take pictures etc) when you plug it in USB, it will only communicate with the camera PC suite software to transfer pictures.
Regarding the battery, if your camera has mobile phones type lithium ion batteries then you can either charge these batteries outside if you have a charger for them or put the battery in camera and plug the camera with its charger that came with it. Its just like charging mobile phone.
If your camera uses AA size (pencil cell) batteries then you will need to either buy Duracell batteries (or any other good Alkaline battery, Duracell is good) and throw them when they stop working or
Buy rechargeable AA size Ni-MH or Li-Ion batteries with charger. Charge the battery with its charger for at least 12 hours before first use or follow the instruction written on battery pack.
I think you are either using normal carbon AA size batteries that are used in clocks or toys, these will not work in digital camera.
Hi there please follow the steps and let me know the result.
1. Ensure batteries are fully charged & clean the battery connector point in side the battery compartment.
2. Look carefully between the lens and the camera body for any sand, dirt or any damaged etc.
3. Try turning the camera with the lens facing down and shake to dislodge anything stuck
4. Try removing batteries and memory card, wait 5 minutes and refit the battery only.
5. Now turn on camera( with out card ) and see ,if working then fix the memory card & again turn on the camera. If working then fine .
Otherwise format the memory card and fix back in camera again & try. Make sure before format the memory card take a
back up all photos in your computer then format. If no luck then reset or restore the camera setting by pressing Menu key for 2 sec ..
in not done the press both Menu & self time key for 2 - 4 sec.
