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.

"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

THANKS!"

I was missing the white switch, so I used a small piece of aluminum foil and packed it in nicely. You can see how the switch should look here around 10:12 into the video. Hope it helps. Peace.

"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."
