    canon us will not accept packages from outside the US , so back to square one, i dont have original reciept, but do have a warranty card, clearly stamped for US only, lesson learned, dont buy outside your home country. or stick to a brand that will have a worldwide warranty

No problem. Just contact Canon Support US via email to discuss your camera's issue and its warranty (amazing that Canon Ireland didn't suggest this). You may have to pay shipping charges, but hopefully that shouldn't be too excessive. Here's the email address:

Canon G9 wont power up.

The reason it won't work is because when you went in to fix it, you shorted out the flash. That's what the flash was that you saw when you reconnected it to the main board. It's best not to open these and try to work on them yourself. There are steps to take when servicing electronics and it sounds like you forgot to drain the capacitor first. I'd suggest to go this site and see if they can help you They're very knowledgable with the Canon cameras and I'm sure they can get working just right again or maybe they can tell you the part you need to fix what you did when you were working on it.

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!

How long has this camera been out? I'm shopping

The Canon Rebel T2i was announced on Feb 08, 2010 and Canon just started shipping the DSLR. Your salesperson was thus correct.
The DSLR is also known as EOS 550D. It differs from the previously model by:
  • Higher resolution 18MP CMOS with gapless micro lenses
  • ISO 6400 no longer in 'expanded' range (12,800 max remains the same)
  • Redesigned buttons and new movie/live view button
  • Customizable auto ISO ranges
  • Improved 63 zone metering (iFCL)
  • 3:2 format screen with more pixels
  • Improved movie functionality
  • Slightly higher burst shooting rate (though buffer holds fewer shots)
  • HDMI control (CEC)
  • SDHX Compatible

    Cannon power shot G9 won't turn on

    If it's under a year, send it in for warranty with proof of purchase. If the warranty has since expired, try this site: They're amazing for help with these. The no power problem on the G7 and the G9 is most often from a common loose screw that falls out inside the camera and causes a short, resulting in no power on the device. The site I gave you does the internal correction to the screws so you don't have to worry about the problem from keep happening. They're $89 with all of the service for the camera included and the repair and correction and even cover shipping back. The best part, they do amazing work on these Canons, good luck with it.

    Canon G9 stopped working

    the DC/DC board or main board may short.
    the DC/DC board is not cheap if you can find one.
    maybe here is a cheaper way to solve this problem, but too long to post here, please check this link:

    Camera wont turn on

    Camera will not power on. Canon posted a bulletin regarding a possible solution for some SD950's at the following website. Apparently this model has a screw that can come loose inside and the camera will not power. They just found this to be the case with my SD950, and they fixed it for free. It was outside of the warranty by a couple months. They even sent me a prepaid UPS shipping label to send them my camera for repair. See the link below for more on this possible solution:

    While I can't be specific for your camera the "Palm" sign normally indicates that "Anti-shake stabilisation" is operational and although you can normally turn it off it is preferable not to as it improves the quality of your recording especially when using long zoom.
