Question about Canon PowerShot G7 Digital Camera

Open Question

Canon G7 Microphone will not work..

I've had my canon G7 for a little over a year now and have barely used the video feature..everytime i have used it it works perfectly. However just the other day I made a video and the sound didn't come out right. It sounded very fuzzy as if I had my hand over the mic..i took a couple other videos and made sure my hand wasn't over the mic and the same thing happened. I uploaded the videos onto my PC and the sound is the same fuzzy sound. I even turned on the wind protection feature and that didn't help...I hope this can be fixed -- I didn't get warantee on my camera! =(

SOURCE: No sound on video

Hi If you keep your finger on the microphone it is possible therefore that there is problem with the sound or enter in a menu, setup and verify that they had given the volume on max power.Whether it is not from that Mean, That factory low.

SOURCE: video playing in fast forward with no sound

This is a really simple problem and easy to solve.  Unfortunately the videos you've recorded cannot be changed back because they have been recorded in Time Lapse mode.  
With the camera switched on in Video Mode turn the control dial on the back (this is the dial to the right of the LCD screen).  This will change the settings from TIME LAPSE to STANDARD.  There are actually 6 different modes but the best one for normal videos is STANDARD.  There is a HIGH RESOLUTION setting,  however these record fewer frames per second (fps) so whilst the quality is better per frame,  there are half the amount of fps so the the movie will look at bit jerky.
It's really easy to accidentally twist the dial when holding the camera,  so always check the icon in the top right of the LCD before recording to make sure its just a yellow camera in a yellow square.  
This should be problem solved for all future recording.

SOURCE: My canon powershot SD280 sound wont work..

hey boss- just figured this one out.

while the video is playing, you can increase the volume by pressing the button above the Func. Set center button and decrease the volume by pressing the button below the Func. Set button. Think we both accidentally turned the volume all the way down.

Too bad you can't tell this by going to the volume menu! Would have been nice to know I was still recording audio while shooting video. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: problem w/ canon g9 camera

I saw several comments about recovering video that has been shot in time lapse mode and just thought I would let you know you cannot. I called Canon to ask.

SOURCE: canon g7 dead wont turn

That's a loose screw issue inside the G7 and the G9 that is common. The best place I know to get help for that one would be camerasandparts.com They just specialize in the powershots and they are awesome if you need help with one of these. Best of luck, they have your exact G7 no power problem right there on their site. I hope that helps.

Check your settings in the menus. If you've muted the camera to remove the other sounds, it will mute the video soundtrack as well.

I have a powershot g7 for almost 4 years now and suddenly the images are blurry. Thanks to advice what could be the problem.


Might be the lens or maybe a circuit board in the camera. If you need to get it repaired you can have it done at: www.camerasandparts.com All they work on are Canons and they are not expensive at all. For $89 they service the G7, both the parts and repair are included, the service for the camera, the shipping back, and they also do the no power correction to prevent the common no power problem on the G7 model that a lot of people eventually go through. If you need to have it fixed, they're the place for these. They only work on Canons and they're excellent for service on these models. Good luck with the problem.

I took a picture with my Camera shut it off went to go use it again and it won't turn on. I've charged the battery and it still won't work. Any ideas what's going on. Thanks Jamie


Its not a problem with the battery, the G7 and the G9 have a problem where a loose screw inside the camera shorts it out and causes it to not power. The repair service is about $85 total for a new part, installation and return shipping of the camera!

Hi! i can't manage to download large video files from my g7 camera to my laptop.....the transfer just doesn't work.....the video detail on the pc tells me the video is 0 giga .... i don't get it...its not...


I searched the support site of Canon.com for your G7 camera, and it didn't list anything on 3 pages under the search terms 'large video files error.'

If this were happening to me, I would uninstall completely the software that came with the camera, and reinstall the latest drivers and software from the canon.com website.

Canon g7 stopped working, lens out but no power


Most likely a loose screw shorted out the power in the camera. For service on these, we recommend www.CamerasAndParts.com They are the best for service on the Canon Powershots and they are not expensive at all. I'll post a video below from a customer referral for this problem on the G7 to them. They are the place for help with this problem.

Cannot get back to Automatic mode on video


With camera dial on video, rotate the scroll wheel located around the direction button until Standard is selected. DO NOT push function set first like the manual says.

Wont turn on


It may be the SD memory card causing the problem. I just bought a G7. When I turned it on without an SD card, no problem. I put it my old cheap SD card and it wont turn on. I take out the memory card and battery, then insert the Canon SD card and battery and turn it on, no problem.
Hope this helps someone.
