Question about Cameras
I re-charged the battery. Still won't turn on. So I bought another Samsung battery - still won't turn on. I tried plugging it into the computer, but it won't recognise the camera because it isn't on. When I was charging it, I noticed the camera was warm (not hot) so I think something was happening. But still - won't turn on. Any suggestions?
When the camera is becoming warm while charging the battery, the battery must be charged. So no need to check for dirty contacts. If you have a multimeter perhaps you can measure the voltage on the battery. While just measuring the voltage, the battery must give a little more then printed on the battery. So when on the battery is printed 3,7 V toy should measure 3.8 or 3.9.
Anything less means the battery is not good.
Now the causes of not switching on. Sometimes the on / off switch is defect. Sometimes the (mini) USB connector is defect and telling the camera, there is still a plug in the camera. It won't switch on. Sometimes the display button must be pushed several times, so the display shows something. And sometimes, the camera is defect.
Carefull investigate the connector and on / off switch, but be aware cameras sometimes become defect, without telling you what is wrong.
I wish you luck.

This isn't the best soulution but it worked for me. I cleaned off the contacts on the battery and when I placed it back in the camera I put a small piece of a thick rubber band under the door and closed it. This forced the battery farther onto the camera terminals and I was able to get a full charge on the battery.

SOURCE: How do you get the
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.
