Can you advise on the model of Acer camera and if its completely dead or if it shows any sign of life?
If you cant recall any obvious damage to it (being dropped or submerged in water), its most likely the battery has been depleted. A replacement battery would be around £10 from somewhere such as here.
If you have a multi meter, you can test the voltage of the battery, touching on the + and - terminals, it should be around 4 volts.
If you confident its a new battery, it may just need charged.
A new charger can be found on ebay here for around £8 including delivery.
In most camera faults I see, you normally see a flashing light to the left of the view finder, or some life in the camera, its unusual for the camera to be completely dead and the fault not to lie with either the battery, or the charging of the battery.
Its also (though obvious) worth double checking you are inserting the battery in correctly.
If you find the power adaptor which plugs into the side of the camera, regardless of the state of the battery, the light to the left of the view finder should come on to show there is power (and its charging the battery). If it doesnt, this is a clear sign there is a significant fault with the camera and would be uneconomical to repair. That said I am hopeful a 30 minute charge of the battery will bring it back to life.
No problem Irene, I await to hear back from you.
I assume your talking about a travel adaptor so you can plug a European or US 2 pin plug into the wall?
