My camera will not turn on, I have checked the battery. I've tried charging it. There is no lights, showing that it's charging. It will not do anything. No, I have not dropped it or damaged it. I keep it in a case and put up.

How do you know the battery is actually "fine"? Did you put a meter on it or have you tried another battery? The battery can show to be charged but not working if it's gone bad.
Also, try removing the battery for at least 60 minutes, check and clean the contacts on the battery and in the camera, then install the battery and see if it will start. Sometimes removing the battery for some time will reset the camera.
If the rechargeable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.
Mine wont turn on either, the battery is fully charged and inserted properly. I can tell this as the pre-flash light comes on but nothing else, the only way to get the pre-flash light off again is to remove the battery.
I have the same camera. It sounds to me that there is a fault with the camera itself and not the battery. You might be better sending Canon an email and asking them. My battery lasts forever so I would think if you already purchased another battery you've eliminated that problem. It might be the contacts inside the camera that are not accepting the full charge. Does the camera battery on screen show that it's full after you've charged it? Maybe trying charging it overnight and then trying it out the next day.
If unused for any length of time, rechargeable batteries lose their ability to retain a charge. Try it with a brand new, fully-charged battery. FWIW, I recharge all my camera and flashgun batteries monthly.
Hello ..Yes please make sure your batteries are fully charged..If battery is charged and still shuts down..There is a good chance lens was hit or bumped.When lenses are bumped the camera will try to extend lens upon power up as part of cycle.If camera detect problem with lens not opening..Then it will shut down...

Well, with my Nikon, the light flashes to show the battery is charging. It stays on when it's charged. My battery and spare battery are 2 years old and working fine. I'd say wait till it stops flashing...hour or 2 in my case, though I never let them run down all the way.
