Possible Solutions.
1. Charge the battery
2. If still not turning on, try using a little rubbing alcohol and wiping the battery terminal(s) on the battery and the battery terminals in the camera. Use a QTip and allow to completely dry before recharging the battery or inserting it into the camera.
2. Replace the battery with new one.
3. On/Off switch may be defective on camera. Charger may be defective. Wire connecting power from charger to wall socket may be improperly connected or loose.

I have a powershot G11. I charged my battery and when I put it back in the camera it won't power on

The G9 has a design defect with screws that loosen, fall out, and short out the camera. I don't think the G11 has this problem, but it is most likely the fuse on the DC/DC board that has 'blown' causing there to be no power.

I'm not sure how much the part costs, usually about $30-40. We repair the no power problem for the Canon G9 for $85 incl parts, installation and return shipping of the camera.

Cannot open the menu and other function buttons

Hi, I've seen that issue before with the G11, it's due to faulty wiring on the circuit board and can only be fixed by a Canon authorized repair shop as fixing that issue is very involved.
