Question about Canon PowerShot G2 (Black) Digital Camera
Hello, I recently got a perfectly running second hand Canon G2 Powershot from a friend and it's been terrific all around. I love it. Today it was running perfectly, until I took a picture in low light, I then switched it to view mode and brought it up on the LCD screen to show someone the shot. The shot came up and then the camera turned off with the lens still out. There has been no power ever since. I have tried the two batteries (which were re-charged last night) and plugged in the power adaptor which did nothing. It hasn't fallen or bumped anything. I've had it with me all the time. Is there a way to force re-start it? Any suggestions to get it going? Muchly appreciated! I love this camera and I know it will work again, I just have to figure out how to do it.
I read of a simmilar problem - a "zoom brush", caused by a faulty part, number CL1-1006-000. Usualy it appears earlier in the cameras career though... Did you try leaving it battery-less for a bit longer than the short changes? Remove it from all possible power sources(There is a small battery inside the main battery compartment) for at least a few minutes. It should reset it in case its just a system crash. Just be aware that after the reset it will ask you to input date and time, and theres another known bug of most of the buttons freezing after inputing date/time. should be fixed by pressing the display button. Hope you manage to fix it somehow...
