Camera wont turn on!!!!! Help!

Hi, I was transfering my gopro files to my cellphone and the camera suddenly turned off and wont turn on back again. Battery was fully charged, and I even tried chargind it more, but there is no sign of any activity (lights or anything).
I have a very importante trip Im going to this evening and I was counting on this camera!!!
I need help urgently!! Why did it break?
