Have you checked out the battery? It is possible that you battery does not charge. does it blink a pattern or does it blink continous? Have you checked your power supply to make sure it is charging. Use a multimeter on your battery contacts to see what you get

its not the battery because i checked online and when i connected the camera to the outlet power supply it blinks repeatedly for a short while, and that means that there is an error on the camera. how would i get a multimeter and check the battery.

Make sure your software for camera driver is up to date, I've had this happen when there was a mismatch with camera/driver

I would suggest to use a AC charger and not the USB from a computer. If your battery is discharged to low the USB port will not supply enough amperage to charge the battery. I would definitely start with a new battery, and an external charger. That way you know for sure what works, especially since this is a "refurbished" camera. You could look at places like this for your parts. Good Luck

I also have that problem with the battery. I have another complaint. The button to turn on the camera is so small that I have a terrible time getting it on. I am 74 years old and when it goes on, I love the camera but it is so frustrating for instance, when I was at my grand daughters college graduation and she was coming down the path going to the stage and I could not get the camera to turn on. I was so upset as this only happens once in my grand daughters life. I originally had a cannon and it was great until someone stole it from me. If I cannot get this problem along with the battery problem fixed, it looks like I am going to ask my children to get me another cannon for my birthday.

First, what Sanyo is it? Second, you are saying it is not coming on, any led flashing? Does anything happen to the camera when you try to turn it on? Have you charged your battery? Do you have a multimeter to check your battery? What have you tried so far?
