Why won't my camera turn on?

I have had my Canon PowerShot G12 for a while now, but now it hasn't been turning on no matter what I try. I have the charger I received with the original purchase and have never had problems. Could there be something wrong with my camera?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

There are a few reasons a camera may not turn on.

  • The battery could be low on energy or old and corroded.
  • The battery terminal is dirty.
  • The circuit connector is broken.
  • The power button is broken.

Some solutions to this problem are:

  • Charging or replacing your battery.
