I had the same problem, and finally I took it to a camera repair shop and they said it was time to get a new one.

Canon g7 dead wont turn on My Canon G7 wont turn on. I have tried new battery without succes. Please help nlthomsen@hotmail.com


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.

No it won't charge through the USB port. Just buy a new generic charger for the NB-4L battery. They're very inexpensive. Here's some from Amazon:

My Canon PowerShot SD300 will not turn on even with a fresh battery.


Your camera sounds like it will need to be serviced by Canon.

You also may have the option of upgrading through their loyalty program for deep discounts.

Give the tech support a call and find out. If you are out of your one year warranty period, you will qualify!

Canon Poershot sd300 digital elph. It just wont turn on period.


Try this: with the battery installed and battery door open, take a pencil, fine tip screwdriver, or anything long and skinny and push the tip of it into the little nub circled in the picture here. There's a spring inside that little nub... keep the spring depressed and try to turn on the camera. If it works, then either a small piece of plastic broke off the battery door or the nub got broken/pushed in too far for the battery door to trigger it. Try using a dab of hot glue to keep the nub pushed into the down position.

Most likely your flash bulb burned out or was damaged. If you feel comfortable opening your camera you can buy a flash module on the internet or ebay for around $20-$25 and install it yourself. If you do so, be VERY careful NOT TO TOUCH the capacitor as those things can store a massive amount of voltage even when the battery is removed and the camera has been off for some time.

If you don't feel comfortable opening your camera and trying to replace it yourself, my suggestion would be to get a new camera. Repairs by Canon usually run more than $100 and the SD300 is a bit old to be laying out that kind of dough, in my opinion.

Wont power on...


If you're certain the battery is fine, the next thing to try would be the following. Pay particular attention to the little switches on your doors:

And if those techniques don't work, next thing to try would be fixes for a lens error (you mention it powers on and off. This is sometimes symptoms of a lens error):

Use as mass storage device


Connecting a camera to computer via a USB to download is one thing- Connecting a camera to Computer to feed back the the card is another. The chances are the firmware on the camera will not accept anything that is not in EXIF format. Try it -simply connect camera in the normal way. This will if you have the normal A C D drives will come up us removable storage -'E' with the appropriate icon in 'My computer' Now pick a file[s] and using the normal Edit/ Select/ Copy[Or right click] routine then go to the removable media['E?' right click paste See what you get- you wont break anything
