camera turns on but not entirely

I have a Pentax optio WG-1. when I press the power button, the green light goes on, but I don't hear the little chime and the display window is not on. I charged the battery but still nothing happens. Any ideas of what I can try next?

Is it shown any error messages? It could be that the lens is jammed or that water got in and broke something. Or, the battery could be in need of replacement.
