500D no power

My Canon 500D is working perfectly until I tried opening it this morning to take some pictures. To my surprise, it did not turn on. I tried replacing the battery, but got the same result.

Please help me fix the problem. Thanks in advance.

This might help... I found on inernet

"Check that the battery is inserted in the right direction and that it is making good contact. I found with an earlier model that the lid didn't push the battery far enough down. Inserting a piece of cardboard just under the lid pushed it down to make better contact."
