I connected the battery to a led for some minutes and tried to charge it with the usb cable, and it charged the battery perfecly. It just doesnt wants to turn itself on. I also tried to reset it and webcam mode, but still no response from the cam. I pluged the memory card in PC and the folders are also not there.
Any other suggestions how to fix it?
Did you try to power it with the 2-wire thin external USB power cable (NOT the 4 wire standard USB data cable)? Push the reset button with that cable plugged in as well. If that didn't make any difference, I'd see if the camera will flash in new firmware (see post #3 for link to firmware files), and if not, ask your vendor for a warranty replacement if it's a new camera.
