Re: my canon g9 will not turn on...
Try recharging the battery fully over night and putting it back in the camera and pushing the on button. This worked for me. The battery that was in the camera when it stopped working had only taken a few pictures so it should have had a good charge. My back up battery had been recharged for a few days and left in the camera bag so it must have lost a bit of the charge as it would not power the camera up after it had failed. Give this a try and report back if you find a different solution. I am afraid this will happen again so I am still seeking answers.

A common problem on the G9 is they get a loose screw inside and often it renders the camera useless with no power after that common short. There's a site you can get these fixed very reasonably and they include the correction to those internal screws so it won't keep happening. The site is: www.camerasandparts.com The do superb work on the canons for about half of what canon wants to fix these cameras. Good luck with the problem on yours.
Lots of people go through this on the G9. Certain screws inside often come loose inside and short out the camera leaving it with no power. A great place to service these is: www.camerasandparts.com All they work on are the Canon Powershots and they do excellent work. It's $89 through them for the parts / labor to fix this, and they service up the camera at the same time when it's being repaired, plus they cover the shipping going back. On the G9's, they also do some correction inside the camera so that the screws don't come loose again inside and cause this problem. If you need to have it fixed, they're the place for this G9 problem.
The very common problem on the G9 (also the Canon G7) is they develop a no power problem from some screws getting lose inside of the camera. There's a site that can help and is extremely familiar with this problem. Try this site: www.camerasandparts.com All they work on are Canon Powershoits and the work they do is fabulous and all for about half the price of most places. The thing that's great with them is they include the service for the camera at the time of the no power repair and they do the correction for no power on all G9's to prevent the no power problem from reoccurring. Hope that helps, they're fantastic if you need help with one of these cameras. So you know, it's only $89 with them for everything. Hope that helps.
This is usually from a loose screw inside the camera, a screw inside the camera can come loose and cause a short which is very common on the G9. If you go to: www.camerasandparts.com all they deal with is service for the Canon Powershots. They're great if you need a hand with one of these and they automatically do the no power correction on the G7's and the G9's they service which is nice. They are about the least expensive out there at $89 and they include the service and the shipping back. The best part, they do excellent work which is a must for me. Hope that helps you some.
It's a common problem with the loose screws on the G7 and the G9 cameras. The camera needs to be serviced since it likely blew a fuse when it shorted. The site that's really good for help with these is: www.camerasandparts.com They just service the powershots and they are less than most places charge. They do wonderful work but the best part is they do the correction for these problem on all G9's they work on so the problem doesn't keep happening. That's where a lot of people go for help with this problem. Good luck with yours.
