Question about Canon PowerShot G9 Digital Camera
I recharged the battery-no result. I thought the battery died, so I bought a new one. Charged it fully, no result. Camera is less than a year old!
If it's under a year, send it in for warranty with proof of purchase. If the warranty has since expired, try this site: www.camerasandparts.com 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.

If the camera is less that 1yr I'd contact Canon to see about a warrantee repair.

Well I bit the bullet and went to my Perth camera dealer in town. Was the microswitch all right, but was totally unserviceable. It was activating but no switching of power. Cost was AUD$102 for the repair - all micro solder replacement its back in service again. Just to add a footnote for a second dumb right foot in a pile of stuff in a dark barn (circa 1880) - try not to trip over on a concrete floor - my G9 is costing AUD$264 for a new lens assembly ... ouch!!!

Hi Busymom, if the playback button will not turn the camera on either then its not the on off button. I suggest the microswitch in the base inside the battery/card door. Poke it with a toothpick gently. If the camera now springs back into life, that's the problem. Now you can either live with it or go for an expensive repair! Best wishes, Laurence
