Question about Cameras
First of all, make sure the battery terminals inside the camera are clean (you can clean them with a qtip and alcohol or a pencil eraser). There are a few things that can cause this, and this web blog details things to check and look for:
Other than those things, you could have oxidized on/off switch contacts, or something trickier. Get an estimate before having it repaired, as the cost of repair can often justify buying a new camera.
Good luck, thanks for using FixYa, and hope this helps you.
