Remove the SD card. Look on the side of the card for a tiny slide switch. Slide this switch to the other "unlocked" position. Reinsert the card and try it out.

Canon g9 just started getting card locked error. I checked, the card is not locked - also tried different cards. It works sometimes. Tried to reset the settings and received "busy" message.


Check the right strap lug and see if it is loose. It is a well know problem with the G9 that the screws that hold it onto the top cover come lose and fall into the camera, causing many different problems is they short out parts of the circuit

I got the Canon Power Shot G9 camera for almost 3years . It has been running well. But last month, somehow I could not operate it. It is not battery issue. At first I thought the battery was so old, so I...


The Canon G9 has a design defect, two screws fall out inside the camera and short out the fuse. If you've never had it fixed for no power before this is most likely what has happened to your camera.

Do a Google search for "canon g9 no power repair" and you will see a full repair service including return shipping of your camera for just $85.

Hope this helps!

My canon power shot A470 is writing card locked


Look at your memory card. SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

Canon G9 camera and G7 similar problem... checked out memory cards and they were reformatted. cards work fine in other digital carmeras I own. Can not get either camera to read a memory card


Usually this means there is a problem with the memory card part in the camera that reads the card. When this happens it will usually say either memory card error or card locked, even when the card is fine. Try emailing this site for help with this: www.camerasandparts.com All they help with are the Canon Powershot cameras and they're excellent for help with these models. Good luck with it. They'd be the place that could help with this.

Memory Card


They tricked you. The picture in the guide is of an SD card, but the card that came with the G9 is an MMC card. On both, there is a row of brass-colored contacts along one edge. This is what looks like ribbing in the guide. These contacts should go into the camera first. The memory cards will only seat if they are inserted correctly, so if it goes in far enough to close the cover, you have it in right.
