Stop working after some uses

Summary: I bought this camera last year of August, but rarely use it. Up to now I used only three times, that is when I go with family for vacations. Last month the camera stopped working. Every time I turn on the camera, it turns on just a few seconds and then shutdown. I checked online but never see a solution for this. What should I do with it now but throwing to the gabbage?
Summary: There's an awkward metal lens cover that pops up and down, uses battery, and stops working after a few months. I dropped the camera and the lens broke, so... it's not tough enough, not even much tougher than a regular camera. I wish I had saved the warranty.
Summary: I purchased 3 Olympus cameras in 2012 - my point in shoot was the 5th in a series of cameras that I dropped or left in my pocket and cracked the screen, etc. I purchased an upper end SLR-like Olympus for higher quality shots - 3 months from the date of purchase, the shutter button quit working - it still takes fine video, but that's not the point of the camera.
Pros: Takes great pictures... once you've turned it on, switched from the P to auto and as long as your friend has kept the pose for 30 seconds, BAM you've got a good shot.
Cons: It's a piece of garabage! It breaks easily! Takes forever to turn on! It doesn't automatically start in 'auto' so you have to manually change it everytime you turn it on! It's the worst camera I've ever owned!
Summary: I expected better results for the price. This camera is practically useless. Many pictures came out blurry even though I was holding the camera super still. The flash is worthless. It flashes so bright that it drowns out the picture. I took a close-up picture of a part in a dim area to get a model/serial number. The flash drowned out the entire picture where I couldn't even see the object - just white light!
