When I try to power the camera on, the lower green LCD in the view finder blinks for about 5 seconds the the camera remains off. I recharged the battery and it did not help.
What can I do?

Re: Won't Power Up
If the green LED blinks, the camera is either having trouble focusing, or there's a problem with the memory card. Since it turns itself off, I would assume that it is the memory card. (Also assuming that the battery is good) Try another card if you can, or try powering up the camera without the card in to see if it stays powered up. This is a great camera, and would be worth taking it to a camera shop if the battery and the memory card check out OK.
Let me know how it goes.

That problem is usually cause of bulged capacitors on the power supply board..
This the sample picture of your power supply board and I marked the possible problems on capacitors..
Things you will need. 1. A plastic flat end screw or any object with flat ends....to fry off the cover 2. Soldering iron. 3. Soldering lead 4. Soldering pump. 5. Flat and Philip Screw 6. Replacement capacitors (of same value with the blown one) that you can buy to any electronics store.
I cant detect my pics in my laptop from the sd cars. But I can see in my camera when I insert the same sd card. Is there any problem with sd card or any virus effected? How to upgrade the sd card. please help me out.
Look for DISP or DISPLAY button in the lower-right corner of the back of your camera. Press this once while the camera is turned on. The DISPLAY button manually turns the screen on and off. This is to save battery power for extended use. You would then use the optical viewfinder in its place.
With the camera on, have you tried pressing the DISP button once? It's the lower left button on the back of the camera. It manually turns the display on or off as desired to save batteries (you can then aim through the optical viewfinder).
This is a defective CCD that Canon is repairing free of charge. Go here for details: http://www.usa.canon.com:80/consumer/controller?act=PgComSmModDisplayAct&fcategoryid=223&modelid=8044&keycode=2112&id=29819
First disconnect power source (both battery and AC adaptor) then reconnect it. If that will not correct this situation, try the following reset procedure: press and hold simultaneously for more than 5 seconds both MENU and MODE buttons. This procedure will also restore all default settings in the camera.
