Open the battery/card compartment and check to make sure a battery is installed. If you do not have a battery installed insert one and check to see if the camera will power on. If it still will not check battery to make sure it is fully charged. After checking if is fully charged and reinserting battery, try powering on the camera again. If the camera still does not turn on you may have a faulty battery. You may need to purchase a new battery.
