My camera stopped working - no on/off light - so I thought it was the battery and charged overnight. Now the light comes on wether on or off and the camera still does not work - no lighting in the back panel - no picture taken when button pushed. IS it the battery, the lythium battery or something else??? The camera is about two years old maybe three. 10 megapixels.

The innards of modern DSLRs are precise and fragile. You need to contact a reputable repair shop ASAP. In addition to fixing your camera, they will clean the interior properly, eliminating dust particles that find their way to the CCD. The cleaning is something you should have done from time to time anyway, so just bite the bullet and take it in!
Likely you need to replace the battery. They're good only for a set number of recharges, and then they just won't store the charge anymore. The other possibility is corrosion or dirt on the battery contacts (on the battery and inside the camera) -- wipe them with a Q tip dipped in rubbing alcohol, let them dry, then try it again.
Most likely the charging circuitry has failed. When you fully charge the new battery what does the battery meter read on the camera? Your two options no matter what the case are repair vs. replacement. If you need further assistance let me know. Thanks, Lee
a few weeks ago i dropped my camera in the sea and i thought, ****. i was in the same boat, so i opened the shutter myself and turned on the camera and it works and takes pictures but the shutter wont close again so if you can make sure you have no dirt in your lense and you can manually open the shutter yourself it may work and if it stops turning on all together keep charging it and once it goes green turn the switch off and on again until it always turns green then it should work again.
I had the same problem. After trying several different new batteries I bought high grade Lithium batteries. This worked! Before getting a new camera try spending $15 on quality batteries. It worked for me.
