Even though your battery indicated it was charged it still could be faulty. The least expensive thing to try would be a new Canon battery, not a generic brand.. That's where I would start. You can also try turning it on without an SD card in it just in case your SD card is causing a problem. One last thought is can you turn the camera on using the Play button and not the On/Off button? Before you send it in for repairs which are very costly Canon is selling these new for $249 and elsewhere you can find them for less.
