    Try a hard eraser if there's no actual corrosion. For better cleaning try emory paper/cloth or even a very fine nail file

    Maybe it won't turn on without the memory card. I had a problem with my Canon when the SD card door wasn't closed properly.

    It's unlikely that storing it for a few months caused the problem. It may not have turned on the next time you tried, whether it was the next hour or week.
