My camera won't switch on any longer. and I've attempted to charge it, to the point where i leave it charged for so many days .. but it still doesn't charge. When reading the handbook manual, the instructions are so brief that it doesn't show you if there's a "proper" way of charging the machine.

Almost certainly the battery. They don't last forever.
MY DigiLife DDV 7000 uses an NP-60 battery. I found some of these on Amazon by searching for "np-60", and paid about $1.50 each. You can also sometimes find batteries by searching on the Camera's model number.
My camera does not charge the battery from the USB lead. I have to use a separate charger.
It is actually for a different model, but works. Once you have installed it, your camera will show up as a source when you use a program that captures webcam pics or video. You will need to connect the camera to your computer with a suitable USB lead.
To turn the flash on and off in still picture mode, you press the right pointing arrow on the round selector switch array. There are two settings, off and auto, so you cannot force it to flash- it will only do it when the camera decides the light is low. The flash does not work when filming video.
Not sure of which model exactly your using, but you may check out the web address below.
It appears to be a Chines manfactured Brand, unfortunately alot of these units appear to suffer from a substandard charging system that leads towards a problem with the battery.
The good news is that many mobile phone batteries are often suitable replacements for these to swap out with. I'm picking its probably around a 4.8v or similar flat type battery and is charged either via computer USB connection or through independant charger. A local camera shop won't be a good bet, the shipping to china may out weigh the cost of replacement. I would suggest hunting for a custom battery manufacturer that can supply a replacement battery and hopefully a charger to suit! :o)
As for the on off switch, also a common flaw in the designs, any local video camera repair shop should be able to assist with that part of it. Hope this helps.
