comment My Canon PowerShot SX500 IS won't turn on
Was the "hold it down for a few seconds" hard reset something suggested in the manual, or did you just try it? There is almost always some way of resetting, so if that wasn't in the manual, look through it again - must be a button or combination of buttons that performs a reset. Might not help, but it's the only thing I can think of

I imagine this would vary widely across makes and models. If a camera has rechargables, you can simply take them out and replace with charged batteries, you don't have to use the USB cable to charge.

Have you tried a reset? Check your manual if not. Possibly double-clicking the on/off button, or holding it down for 5-10 seconds?
