    I had put the camera with it switched on in the bin to got through airport security. Now I can't get it to stay on or close. I have new batteries in it. It never got wet or dropped. I did notice that the internal battery was half charged the last time I used it. Is there a way to charge the internal battery?

This kind of problem is hard to understand just what the problem is. That is because many problems can cause such behavior.

Make sure that if this camera has a switch on the battery door or battery/memory card door, that it is not broken or has anything to do with the starting of the camera. One way to test this is to leave the door open, then try to start the camera. If nothing at all happens, then the switch should be okay.
I would like to know about the history of this camera. Has it ever been dropped, been exposed to water, or had an impact on the lens when it was extended. Any of these can lead to problems like what you have stated.
Dropping a camera can do internal damage, not only to the lens, but to the internal connections.
Water damage can cause unlimited kinds of errors and troubles which may be hard to define. An impact to the lens can damage the internal workings of the lens unit to the point that it can be jammed. The jamming will cause such actions as you mentioned. That is because the lens cannot move, cannot be detected as to position and may cause the camera to stop or shut down.

It means that a camera malfunction that you cannot reverse has occured.

You can try to press the reset button located inside the jack cover and then turn on the camera again.
