This question already has an answer here:

I downloaded a bunch of wpts from my gps. I converted them to .SHP format with a CRS WGS 84 in QGIS, and started a new project. I then exported some satelite imagery from the internet as a tiff and imported it as a raster in my project as WGS 84. I have CRS 'on the fly, enabled, but I still cannot see both layers at once. I can zoom between layers but they wont overlay.

After working on this all day, I finally figured it out. I was importing the tiff with the wrong projection.
