We have two of these cameras. If it has been dropped, it can affect the way the camera "reads" the case sliding. Please turn the camera over and check on the bottom, and see where the cover is sliding to. If it is off track, it will not read it properly.
Also, rechargable batteries don't really work in this model worth a hoot. It is a power user. We've found only ONE kind of batteries that really make this camera work smoothly - the energizer "e" batteries in the silver and BLUE packaging. I take a LOT of pictures, and have had these last up to a month. (I am always curious about battery life and date them with a sharpie when I put them in.) Even after they no longer power the camera, they have plenty of oomph left for powering other regular items. (Our hair trimmers have been running for two months on AA taken out of the camera.)
Also, please close the slider a couple times and reopen it, making sure it is going all the way over. It doesn't always lock into place, and the camera mis-reads it as still being closed. It is a pain in the rump, and something I hope subsequent models get a modification on!
Also, simple, but double-check your batteries, and be sure they are not inserted backwards. Oftentimes, this is the reason ours won't turn on - in haste, we've put one or both in the wrong direction! Ha!
Hope that is the only problem for you.
