Canon SD200 Problem: Will Not Power On!

Hey guys I got a Canon SD200 for free from my dad's friends today with battery and charger but he said it was broken.

It comes with no receipt and the lens is partially sticking out. When I charge the battery and put it in, nothing happens!

What can I do?

a) Pay 75% the cost of a modern point & shoot camera to repair this obsolete one.

b) Wait for a sale and get a modern camera for a decent price. Throw away the SD200.

c) Suck it up and live with the fact that you don't have a working camera.
What if there were no hypothetical questions?

Do you think that this would relate to me?

If you decide to get rid of it, please let me know. I need a replacement LCD. :cheesygri

If your LCD is showing a distorted image, you might want to check the link given in the OP's second post.

Wonder if it's the e18 error. Too bad there's no power to see what message there is (if there's any)

After charging the battery over night, nothing happened (nopower) so it probably is the E18 error in conjunction with a dead battery.

Is there any stores where I could pick up a non OEM for cheap ? (Mississauga)

Are there any other explanations for the camera not powering on other then the dead battery ?
