Re: can't turn on
Just follow some tips below:
when u insert battery and turn on you told the battery icon will blink so try giving reset once ....
i think the firmware has got corrupted .... you must install the new firmware to it ... after trying giving the reset option if problem persists then check whether there is connectivity with the pc or not ....
contact the service show room and get install the new firmware for your camera then it will work .... and before have a check whether it is charging or not when the battery icon blink ... if there is no charging progress means then there may be problem in the charging port or may be the charging IC is damaged .... if it is charging then make sure that there is no problem with the charging port if not you must contact the service showroom and you must get replaced the port ...
any doubts reply me i am always here to assist you thank you bye

Try removing the batteries then either plugging your camera in with the
AC adapter or the docking station. Try cleaning the contacts from the battery and the battery compartment of the camera.If your camera works with either one
of these then you have a problem with either the batteries or the
battery contacts. If your camera doesn't work with the AC adapter then
you will have to send the camera in for repair.
Make sure the ac adaptor ius the right polarity for the camera, negative outside plug and positive centre,also make sure the voltage output of the charger is correct 5 volts dc.You do not need batteries as well as the charger.
TIPS: 1.)NEVER PUSH THE LENS IN AFTER CAMERA DIES, BUY A NEW BATTERY IMMEDIATLY AND TURN IT BACK ON, CLOSING THE LENS!
2.)NEVER USE AN AC ADAPTER, USE A RECHARGEABLE BATTERY OR A REGULAR BATTERY!
..to fix this...
Do as i say..
1.) Remove battery 2.) Remove front plate (screw driver may be needed) 3.) Check all gears, make sure they are correctly fitted in place) 4.) Move the gear manually to make the lens come out. 5.) keep it out, put the front plate back together. 6.) reinsert the battery, turn it on.
or... 1.) Remove the battery. 2.) Wait about 6-8 hours. 3.) Reinsert the battery.
or... 1.) Remove the battery. 2.) Try hooking it up through AC adapter, put correct voltage. 3.) Try turning it on. 4.) Remove AC adapter, reinsert battery. 5.) Turn it on.
If nothing happens just tell me..
Hey ghgyu, I would first make sure you have the batteries installed correctly. If you are using a camera dock or you have an AC adapter cord I would try removing the batteries and try turning the camera on while connected to the camera dock or plugged into an outlet with the AC adapter cord. If the camera works this way I would then try cleaning the battery contacts with a soft cloth or an eraser. If none of this works I would have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician. I hope this helps! Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead. Use Us.
I got this from the Sony website. I haven't tried it yet. I also have an email in to them.
Follow this procedure to troubleshoot if the power will not turn on. IMPORTANT: If model-specific information is required to complete any of the steps in this solution, refer to the operating instructions supplied with the product. Manuals are available online in the Manuals/Specs/Warranty section of the Sony® eSupport Web site.
Ensure you are using fresh or fully charged batteries.
IMPORTANT: Batteries discharge more quickly when used in cold weather conditions.
Attempt to turn on the camera.
If the issue is not resolved, try replacing or recharging the batteries.
On the camera, move the mode switch to the Playback/Edit mode and attempt to turn on the camera.
If the issue is not resolved, try connecting the AC power adapter (if applicable) to the camera and a working electrical outlet.
Attempt to turn on the camera.
Not all cameras are provided with an AC power adapter.
If the issue is still not resolved or the camera operates in one mode but not the other, then service will be required.
Ouch! You can't use an AC adapter with any battery-operated equipment you choose to just because the plug fits physically. The A70 requires 5-6 volts, and a Pavilion adapter typically puts out 18 volts. You most probably blew out your Canon's power supply within a few seconds, unless it's fused somehow.
