Not knowing how much you use the camera makes this a harder question to answer. Make sure the battery is fitted correctly but it might be a worn out battery. Using it a lot will eventually wear the battery out and only using it occasionally can affect the battery as it isn't charged.
Are you charging the battery while it is still in the camera? A separate charger is more effective. It might be worth investing in a charger if you don't have one and/or another battery.

Testimonial: "I havent used it much, honestly prolly since the summer. Its never gave me any problems. My camera just came with a cord so i just plug it up. I was thinking it needs new battery and my husband thinks it needs new charging cord. bc when you plug it up to the computer it doesnt even register anything plugged into it"

Is there anything that sounds like a "beeping" noise when it extends? A lot of times the focus motor gears are knocked out of place. This causes a lens error, even if the lens extends fine. The camera has the "external" zoom lens, and an internal focus lens. This can be only fixed with disassembly of the lens, if indeed this is the problem you're talking about.

Hi, if you are using the KLIC-5000 battery try to clean the metal contacts on the battery. Try also to remove the battery of your camera dock your camera on the docking station then turn on the camera, if the camera will not turn on it means the charging mechanism of the dock is defective. Now if the camera turns on it means the battery is defective that is why you can charged it.

This normally indicates a battery problem. Remove the battery and wipe the contacts (battery and camera) firmly with a dry cloth to remove any corrosion that may have built up on them. Heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper. After cleaning, remove any debris that may have fallen into the battery compartment, then insert the battery and connect the camera to the charger. If the green light stays on, the problem is gone and you can charge the battery for several hours and then use the camera. If the red light comes on, it's likely time to replace the battery - especially if it's more than a year old.

HINT: Always remove the battery if you don't plan to use the camera for a week or more. This will prevent corrosion buildup and extend both battery life and camera life.

SOURCE: my samsung pl100 wont turn

OK this might sound harsh but i just did this. I pushed in, gently with some force, on the lens while pushing the power button. It made a gawd awful crunch sound, but it worked. Good luck.

There's a good chance you have failing electrolytic capacitors most likely in the power section.
Any caps in this or other sections that look bulged at the top, or bulged/leaking at the bottom need to be replaced.
If you repeatedly turn it off and on, eventually it'll probably turn on, but every time you turn it off, the TV will get harder and harder to start up until one day it just won't.

If you aren't tech savvy, don't worry, read the rest of this solution and watch the videos.

If you are handy with a soldering iron and can identify the power supply and inverter / FM section for the backlights, an inexpensive handful of capacitors will likely fix you right up.
Match the capacitance on the capacitors. Go over voltage if you can, and still have them fit.
IE - it's not a bad idea to replace a 10V cap with a 16V or 25V or even a 50V, but don't replace a 680uF cap with a 500uF or a 1000uF (unless you are positive it's only doing ripple filtering, and even then, you should go OVER, not under the uF rating).

Most of the caps that go are 10V 1000uF or 3300uF.

I found some great videos of the procedure (for many Samsungs with the same issue) on youtube.

As you can see, this issue spans plasma TVs, as well as large and small LCD and projection TVs and monitors.
The parts are cheap, and skill required is minimal.

Samsung L100 wont turn on

Samsung's have notorious problems with their lens-cap shutters malfunctioning. This seems to be the case with yours. It will have to be serviced, I'm afraid.

Green light comes on but camera dosent stay on

two possibilities  1)either the battery is internally got drained as it shows that it has charged but due to drained its exactly not getting completely charged.its a most possible needs the battery replacement. 2)if not the battery then the connectors of metal in the socket where the battery is inserted that connector is got faulty so it needs resoldered internally with the help of soldering iron.
