You have a faulty capacitor it the circuit of your camera
It holds the needed voltage to operate correctly
The cost to repair it generally is more than the cost of a replacement camera sorry to say

1. Remove the batteries and clean the battery contacts inside the camera with a soft cloth. Remove any residue that the cleaning leaves in the camera, and then reinstall the batteries.
2. Place the camera flat on its back on a table, pointed at the ceiling. Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the power-on button.
3. Blow compressed air in the gaps around the lens barrels with the idea of blowing out any sand or grit that may be in there jamming the lens.
4. Repeatedly tap the padded/rubber usb cover on a hard surface with the intent of dislodging any particles that may be jamming the lens. Other variations include hitting a side of the camera against the palm of your hand.
Hope this helps. Shane
