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.

Please help me in locating sensor in SX120 IS . I tried to find but no luck..

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 do not see either. So my camera just does not stay turned on. Have tried numberous batteries and nothing will make it stay on. The battery cover closes and it still says change batteries even when new batteries are in it. Help please.

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

THANKS!
