First check the battery. Charge the battery to full condition or change with new battery and try to turn on your camera.
Or you can put off all batteries and memory card, wait for a moment, then put in again and turn on your camera.

Hope this help

My camera light comes on when i press the on/off button and the lense comes out all the way but then goes in abit, and beeps twice, i then click the power button again and the lense goes in, beeps again...

The problem you describe is power related, and is usually caused by one or both of the following:

1. Your batteries may need to be replaced. Batteries get old and lose their ability to accept and hold a charge, so they may be very low even with an overnight charge. Check the battery power with a voltmeter if possible, but batteries often need replacing if they are a year or more old.

2. Corrosion buildup on battery and camera contacts is a common problem, especially if a camera is idle for long periods. Remove the batteries and check all contacts for a white, green or blue buildup. Even if you don't see anything, wipe the battery contacts and the camera contacts firmly with a clean dry cloth. Heavy buildups, if present, may require cleaning with a fine wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper. After cleaning make sure that there is no buildup residue in the camera's battery compartment. Then install and charge the batteries.

Other possibilities, although rare, are problems with the charger or the camera's power circuitry. You can check the charger output with a voltmeter, but troubleshooting the camera's circuitry requires a professional camera shop.

Console wont come on red light goes green then yellow flashes then flashes red

its an error. hold down the power button till it beeps once. the hold it again till it beeps twice. The moment it beeps twice take your finger off and instantly hold it down again. your ps3 with give you 5 onscreen options, hit #3 and only number 3. that should fix the problem. You can also youtube "how to fix disk error on ps3" and people will should you how to do these stated steps.

Turns on four beeps and it shuts down

I was all over this site and the only solution was to send it into repair for the "4 beeps and shut off" problem. I found another site that talked about lense errors, and one of their suggestions was to take the camera, lense up, smack it into your other hand (not too hard) (screen down toward your receiving hand) while the lense was out. You have to be fast, because when you power on, the lense comes out, and you have about 2 seconds to do it. My first light smack, and the camera came alive again! They also talked about lightly tweaking the lense while it was out in case it fell off track or skipped a tooth, but that wasn't my problem apparently!

hold down the power button until it beeps twice. that will restart your settings for the display. once it beeps twice then turn the system1.gif on and change the default settings back to your hdmi settings. what happened was when you transferred the ps3 to composite the settings changed to accomodate that but when you switch back to hdmi it doesnt change back. the only solution is to hold down the power button untill it beeps twice. normaly 3 seconds.
