Question about Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera
The camera would not down load to my computer so I canceled the process and turned the camera off. I removed the battery and replaced it with a fresh one but the camera will not power up now
Did you remove the USB cable? As long as there is an USB cable in the camera, you can't power it up.
Then you still have to check if the battery is still in good order. Batteries do have a limited time of life. And you only can be sure it is charged, when it works in another (same model) camera.

Joe, this happened to me, just tonight... I got a new CF card and stuck it in, turned it on and one CF card flash. Completely dead from there. I found one of the CF card pins bent over, shorted out the socket and blew the mainboard fuse. I took the camera apart, found the fuse (labelled K) about under the set button area) I bridged the fuse with a bit of solder, straightened out the pin in the socket, put it all back together and it's working fine. The fuse is under the right side shield cover, it's labelled with a letter K. There is another fuse on the power inlet board (below the shutter button) and it's labelled 'P'...

Please discard that the USB port or the USB cable are defective. You can do it if you try to hook your camera in other personal computer using the same USB cable. If it works, then follow the next instructions.
Connect your camera to the PC thru the USB cable and turn it on.
If you are using Windows, go to the Control panel - System - Hardware - Devices - and check if there is any device that was not recognized by Windows. Such devices are marked with a yellow question mark.
If so, get into the device item and with right mouse click, select to update the device driver.
If there was not unrecognized device, then you can unistall your USB port driver and then run a change hardware status to recognize the USB port again, then run the update driver routine.

It could be a number of things. The first thing you shouild do is remove the back cover and check for loose screws. If you don't find any, the problem may be a damaged battery door switch, a damaged memory card slot door switch, or worse- it may be a defective power board.

A dead camera is impossible to tun diagnostic checks on without specialist tools, so yes, your camera will need to go to a Canon service centre for diagnosis and an estimate. If you decide not to go ahead with the work then you'll be charged for return shipping and a fee for the work carried out to make a diagnosis.
If the warranty expired fairly recently, then it may be worth contacting Canon before getting the estimate: it's not unknown for them to offer goodwill repairs for major faults which occur prematurely, but you need to be aware that your model was only designed with an approximate four year minimum lifespan.
