I have two batteries, charged them both, yet my camera still does not turn on. I mean, no green light or anything. Hopefully I am just stupid and it is something very easy to fix. But my knowledge of this camera is limited and I cannot find the manual for it. Any ideas?
This is generally caused by a blown fuse. These powershot models have an excellent power protection system and will blow a fuse before damaging any critical parts in the camera. At some point the camera experienced a power surge (static electricity, short, etc) and the fuse blew. Chances are good that the camera is still just fine, but will require a fuse replacement. The charge for this at my shop is $89 plus the fuse which is a few dollars. It can be replaced by someone technically inclined who has a pair of tweezers, the proper fuse, and a soldering iron.
