G15 Suddenly Won't Power On


My lightly used G15, not even 4 months out of warranty, suddenly will not power on.

I have tried a freshly charged battery (I have 2 genuine Canon batteries), with and without a card and have inspected the battery contacts which look fine. I have tried holding the ON/OFF button for up to a minute as well.

The camera is lightly used (a backup to my main system) and is kept in a case in a smoke-free, dry environment.

I would hate to have to spend $200 (Canon's flat service fee) if it is something simple.

Does anyone know of any special key combinations to hold or something to power up with some kind of reset?
