It probably won't turn on if it thinks its battery door is open. Check to make sure that the tiny switch that conveys that information isn't stuck or broken.

Was battery fully charged? Is it the original battery? Do you have a second battery to try?

Sounds like camera needs to be sent for service then.

Re: 60D EOS Canon not turning on

There are two micro-switches that will cause the camera to shut down.  One is on the memory card door and the other is on the battery compartment door.  You'll notice a small tab on the door that has to engage the switch.  If either door isn't closed the camera wont power up.

 

It's possible the switch isn't fully engaged.  

 

Of course it could be something completely different.
