Thank you for your question, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.
Please note, click on Reply to Expert to reply to me, a rating is only needed when we are finished.
Can you remove the battery and hold the power button for 35 seconds, then release.
This will drain all reside power.
Then put the battery back in and try to turn it on.
Let me know the results please

sorry no green light does not come on

Thanks Thomas
It is the internal mainboard that has faulted.
We have ruled out the other two causes which is a faulty battery or residue power.
I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the camera to have it replaced. It will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.
I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
