If you meant that the camera does not come ON even after the charging , you must remove the battery and check the voltage on the battery. If there is no charge then the battery is faulty, if not there is fault within the camera. Keep aside battery for a while before resetting. It is not easy to probe within the camera for a board failure but if there is no life even with a charged battery the camera processor is defective. If under waranty you must claim for free replacement.
Try to remove the rechargeable battery and use a battery of the same
type but an alkaline like the energizer. Sometime rechargeable battery
malfunctions that it seems fully charged but actually is not. If the
camera continue to power on when you replace the battery it simply means
that your problem is in the battery.

Error 99 is usually a lense error and gives the only real clue as to what is going on with your camera. You can try this simple fix which comes straight from Canon. Follow the steps to help isolate the issue. Note the fact that you are currently not getting the Error 99 is probably a good sign according to the troubleshoot.
To isolate the cause of the issue, we suggest that you do the following:
1. Turn off the camera. 2. Remove the lens, battery, and CF card. 3. Allow the camera to sit without power for approximately 20 minutes. 4. Insert a fully charged battery, and turn on the camera. 5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
Does the “ERR 99′ message appear? If it does, then the camera should be serviced. If it does not, then please proceed to the next set of steps:
1. Turn off the camera. 2. Insert the CF card. 3. Turn on the camera. 4. Format the CF card in the camera. 5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
Does the “ERR 99′ message appear? If so, then the CF card is the most likely source of the issue. Try using a different card.
If the message does not appear, please complete the following steps:
1. Turn off the camera. 2. Clean the lens contacts by gently rubbing them with a pencil eraser or soft cloth. Be careful that you do not let any debris fall into the camera body. 3. Reattach your lens. 4. Turn on the camera. 5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
If the “ERR 99′ message only appears when one particular lens is attached, then that lens should be examined by a service technician.
If you see the “ERR 99′ with a different Canon lens attached, then the camera should be serviced.
