My camera won't turn on, how do I fix it?
I dropped my camera recently and I've tried various times to turn it on but it refuses to do so.
First check the battery compartment door. There is a micro switch that turns the camera off when you open it. If the battery cover does not press down on the switch the camera won't go on. Make sure that the battery compartment door covers the batteries so that the micro switch senses that the cover is closed.
Holding the camera upside down with the battery door open and the SD chip closest to you, the micro-switch is white. it is to the left of the SD card, immediately to the right of the black plastic protrusions which might act as a catch for the latching mechanism. We have 2 of these cameras. The one that is working has the white micro-switch which moves down when you push on it. The broken camera seems to be missing this white micro-switch, and it will not turn on.

I found a solution to this question. First make sure the battery's are charged. Second remove the SD card and replace it with a new one. Then replace the lens with another one(you don't have to). Now it should work
I had this problem all I you need to do check the bottem of the cam make sure battery is pushed in. But I'm referring to a safari hd action camera
A few different issues can be cause for this problem in a Canon camera. First, make sure that the battery is fully charged and inserted properly. Even if you've had the battery inserted in a charger, it's possible that the battery wasn't inserted properly or the charger was not plugged into an outlet properly, meaning the battery did not charge. Make sure the metal terminals on the battery are clean or there is no carbon on them. You can use a dry cloth to remove any grime from the contact points. Finally, if the battery compartment door is not securely closed, the camera will not turn on.
If it doesn’t work then go to the authorised service center.
Check the battery to see if it’s damaged or not.
If you need to send it to a pro, remember to take out the SD card in advance.
I have a canon powershot ELPH 180. After 2 years it started acting strangely. First, it wouldn't take movies unless I held in the movie button. Then it started scrolling through the picture roll when I started it up even though I did not have it set to do that. Then it would start up once, but then after I shut it down it wouldn't start again unless I removed and re-insterted the battery. I bought a new battery which reduced the frequency of the issues, but then it started not turning on again. What finally solved it was that I CRC'd every connection.
Get a can of CRC or similar fast evaporating electronics cleaner online or in the back of your local Walmart with the automotive miracle additives. Turn the camera upside down and spray the CRC into the crack around the On/Off switch and photo actuator buttons. Let it drain and dry for 15 minutes. Then open the battery compartment and remove the SD card and battery. Put the little CRC hose in both and spray a bit while holding it righ side up so those cavities drain. Then spray the metal parts around the battery door, and spray the terminals on the battery and SD card.
Let everything dry for 15 minutes and then put everything back in and start it up.
It was funny, because even after cleaning the camera connections I still had problems with the old battery. But after I CRC'd the connections on the old battery even that worked fine. So apparently these Powershots are very sensitive to even the smallest amount of corrosion on any of the connectors.
Now mine works fine again.
