Re: Camera won't turn on
If you are getting no response at all from the camera, it could be one of a few things.
First (and yes I have seen it done) The batteries maybe in backwards.
Second there is a micro fuse inside that could have shorted out and I have seen this in many digital cameras over the years.
The fuse looks like a tiny white strip somewhere near where the battery is connected to the camera. Of course it's not easy to get to and you have to rip the whole thing apart and check it with a multimeter.

Yes, it's possible. Rechargeable batteries don't last forever. Lithium batteries in particular can fail early if they are allowed to become totally discharged.
The best way to proceed is to buy a new battery, then try to charge it. If it charges and the camera works, problem solved.
If it doesn't charge, then you will need a new charger. The battery will not be wasted though, as it is always handy to have a spare.
If having bought both new battery and new charger you camera still won't work, then you will have to look into your warranty or return it to the shop- however that works in your country.
It is possible to check the voltage of the battery with a meter (you can buy a general purpose multi-meter cheaply) but this takes a modicum of skill and interpretation. Even a run down battery may show some voltage on a meter, as it doesn't draw much current.
hi, what type of batterys have you brought as most normal batterys you buy wont even switch the camera on you need hi power batterys such as lithium or even better go into a camera shop and they will have special high power bats, normal bats wont even switch mine on so give different batts a try
let me know how you get on or if you need fyrther assistance ok
SOLUTION: Fot the past two years, fully charged NiMH and new alkaline (generic and fresh Name Brand batteries) in my CX7530 always gave a red light and immediate power off -- symptoms of low batteries. Today I tried it again with the same problem. This time, I folded up a small piece of stiff paper to depress the small Lithium battery module detect switch in the battery compartment, and put my NiMH batteries back in -- it WORKED for the first time in two years! After removing the paper and reinserting the batteries, it still works. I suspect this somehow recalibrates the low battery detect circuit. I hope it helps you as well.
