SOURCE: wont power-up
repair of this nature is possible, but ill advised. seals can be easily damaged, time would be prohibitive and likely need some special tools to manipulate screws and other fasteners. you will likely end up sending it in for more than pins after you invest a lot of time and buy tools.
shipping is minimum on a camera body. Canon has fixed price repairs that minimize your exposure to big bills for repairs. they will at that time go through the camera and update the firmware as well. worth the 250 or so they might charge.
unfortunately, you have two bodies that need repairs.
not powering up could mean an issue with the battery, or the camera door sensor, or the mother board.
check to see the camera battery and other camera body doors are fully closed. try another battery from a local shop. if that does not work, you will need to send it in for repairs.
sorry, and good luck

it only fixed to put rechargables in. tried to use rechargeable batteries.
Alkaline batteries stored at "room temperature" self discharge at a rate of less than two percent per year. So normally refrigerating or freezing them will only help maintain their charge by a tiny amount. Hardly worth the effort of chilling them. However, if alkaline batteries are stored at higher temperatures they will start to lose capacity much quicker. At 85 degrees F they only lose about 5% per year, but at 100 degrees they lose 25% per year. So if you live in a very hot climate or are storing your batteries in a very hot location, it may be worthwhile for you to store your alkaline batteries in a refrigerator instead.
NiMH and NiCd batteries self discharge at a MUCH faster rate than alkaline batteries. In fact, at "room temperature" (about 70 degrees F) NiMH and NiCD batteries will self discharge a few percent PER DAY. Storing them at lower temperatures will slow their self discharge rate dramatically. NiMH batteries stored at freezing will retain over 90% of their charge for full month. So it might make sense to store them in a freezer. If you do, it's best to bring them back to room temperature before using them. Even if you don't freeze your NiMH batteries after charging them, you should store them in a cool place to minimize their self discharge.
When u use cheaper batteries usually get that message, but when u use more expensive batteries It don't and can take 400+ pictures.
For an example when u use Rayovac Heavy Duty batteries (4 pack costs about .99) It can take maybe 20 pictures, but when u use Energizer batteries ($3-$4 for a 4 pack) 400+ pictures can be taken. I'm not sure why this is, but it is something.....
