My solo recently crashed into a tree. There was no external damage. When I checked to see if it still works I power in the battery the lights on the battery light up then turn off. I tried this with multiple batteries but same thing it won’t turn on.

I do encourage you to search a bit on the forums and do some reading, but I'll get you started.

Likely a bad motor pod

You'll find that "you" crashed your Solo into a tree, the solo didn't do it by itself and the tree didn't jump out in front of your solo. I suggest you dress provocatively and dance slowly for your solo.... that should turn it on.... or you could do like just_bruce said and check the motor pods....

If you were at the controls when it crashed, then the view of the FAA and all the pilots I know personally would be that, yes, you did crash the drone.

It's not that Irishman is being a smart ass - it's just his humorous style. He's a stalwart and one of the fountains of knowledge on here.

At the end of the post he's actually agreeing with Bruce and pointing you towards a faulty motor pod - worth checking if you have spares, or at least check for broken or disconnected wires. One may have got damaged when you crashed.

Hey folks, you know what, I do owe everyone an apology.
Bobodaboss4 didn't crash his drone and it was wrong of me to assume that he did, even if I was saying so in a joking matter. I realize that I was in the wrong, after I saw the photographic proof of what actually happened...

Yes.... his drone was attacked by a tree monster........ it happens, and I'm hoping the FAA does something about this soon. I've had countless tree's attack my drones...
