Same issue, as original question. the link posted was very helpful - if you shake the camera jsut right you can hear something loose inside - which is probably the screw they talk about on the website. I jsut noticed I'm also missing one of the screws on the outside next to the tripod mounting hole....looks like the screws like to work themselves loose just by handling the camera (mine is about 1.5 years old).

I had the same problem. I sent it to Canon and it came back today fixed and free of charge even though I've had it for almost two years. Then I tried using it again tonight and it doesn't work again. I charged the battery pack, still not working. I found out that this camera has a service notice for it on canon's site. My camera does have one of the serial #'s they describe. I guess they fixed it for free b/c it was a loose screw but now it's come loose again the same day. How frustrating! I have to have a camera for tomorrow so I'll go buy another camera. I'll still send this one back to Canon and see what they do this time.
Here's the link so you can check your serial #. Good luck!
Might want to take a look at this: http://canoncanada.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/11506/session/L3Nuby8xL3NpZC9FVFAyZDdCag== My SD950 just refused to power on during a trip out west. Apparently a screw might have come out that prevents the camera from turning on. The repair is free-of-charge, even fro out-of-warranty period. It is a beautiful camera: pictures are not too shabby, but the design is fantastic for a portable ...
If you bought the camera in January, it's still under warranty for a year. When you get home call 1-800-OK-CANON to arrange warranty repair. They're usually very good about it, and will try to make things right.
Camera will not power on. Canon posted a bulletin regarding a possible solution for some SD950's at the following website. Apparently this model has a screw that can come loose inside and the camera will not power. They just found this to be the case with my SD950, and they fixed it for free. It was outside of the warranty by a couple months. They even sent me a prepaid UPS shipping label to send them my camera for repair. See the link below for more on this possible solution:
