Question about Canon Cameras
I suspect that the batteries are not powerful enough to power it up ...(if you know that nothing happen with it ) just remove the batteries and try to use some real good AA batteries....or if you use rechargeable ones...just try regular ones just to see if they work ...(try good ones like Duracell ), cause there is a possibility that the charger or the batteries you use to be faulty ..
Even if the blue light is on ..it only indicates that has some power but nothing else..If it was a matter of faulty lcd at least you should be able to hear the lens working ...or so ...
Also check the mode...and be sure is not in a strange one ...let me know more about how it behaves...and what happen after changing the batteries..

First off, make sure your batteries are fully charged and that their contacts (as well as those inside the camera) are clean (use a qtip and at least 90% isopropyl alcohol).
Two things can stop a camera from powering up, and initializing- power and lens issues.
Here are two good web pages that explain what you can try to get the camera operating again:
If this doesn't help, the unit will have to be serviced. Get an estimate first, since it can run into some bucks.
Good luck, and hope this helps.
