canonsx280HS Camera has been functioning beautifully, but now suddenly stopped switching on. i have two batteries, both fully loaded and have cleaned them both and retried each of them, still no luck.Camera not dropped, wet, or anything that I am aware of. DSuggestions please?

Hi Peggy. Welcome to justanswer.

Insert the batteries, remove the sd card and hold down the POWER button for 10 seconds and then check if it powers on or not

Didn't work.
tried each battery, and longer than ten seconds.

How old is your camera? Most probably the power circuitry has gone down. The battery is not able to supply proper current and voltage to the camera to function. Either a transistor or capacitor in the power circuitry has gone bad.

just over two years old. is there any way to repair it then?

Yes it can be repaired. You will need to take it to a local repair store. The technician will test the components and it won`t cost you much.
