The likely has a short that is causing that E16 Error Code. Since it likely needs a part replaced, you can try this site: www.camerasandparts.com They'll fix any Powershot problem, these are the only models they work on. They are about half the price of Canon for Service and they do excellent work. They exclusively do the Canon Powershot cameras only, they're the guys if you need help with a problem on one of these cameras.

SOURCE: Canon G9 reads E16. What should I do?

You can go to the website: www.camerasandparts.com and get their email address. They can help you for sure. They only service canon cameras and they are wonderful for help with the canons. Pretty much the place for help with a broken powershot and they charge about half of what canon does. The work with them is superb.

E16 error code


Following information is not mine but from another site. This is a cut and paste since i didn't want to give you the bad news. Now the news;

I e-mailed Canon tech support, and received a suggestion to remove, wait for 20 minutes, then reinstall the batteries. I confirmed that they were fully charged, and restarted the camera. The lens extended, but the LCD display is sometimes shot through with horizontal lines resembling static, which are recorded in photos taken afterwards (examples attached.). The camera now starts up randomly, and the lines come and go randomly. The only offer Canon has made after this was to offer an "upgrade" to a refurbished S2 IS for $299. That's about the price of a new one online! I have decided not to buy any Canon digital camera again. I would, however, like to try to get this one running with a degree of reliability. user_offline.gif quote.gif Canon S1 won turn on E16 error HELP Canon Digital Photography Forums
This is all the info i found. Hope this helps. also sorry about the camera.

Why does my Canon G12 Communication has an error message when uploading to my mac


Probably your memory card is full, you should erase some pictures from the camera and it will work. It happened to my Canon G9 . I erased some old pictures from my memory card and the message Communication Error disappeared.

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

Won't recognize memory card


When this memory card error occurs on the G9, it is most often from a faulty card reader in the camera. If you need help with it, try this place: www.camerasandparts.com They just specialize in the Canon Powershots and they know these models so well. Go to their site and send them an email, I'm sure they can tell you what's going on with it. Hope they can help you with the problem, good luck.

I turned my Cannon G9 camera on and 'lens error. restart camera' is the message I see. The lens will not retract and the camera does not function at all except for the message and the opening...


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ... Here are some troubleshooting steps that you can try that may (or may not) correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try. Some of the later steps do involve some risk to the camera, so carefully weigh your options before deciding to conduct them:

E16


That's probably some sort of error code your camera is displaying. I know the most common codes are E18 and E24 on canons, for the E16 try going to the following website and emailing them: www.camerasandparts.com They just work on the canons and I'm sure they've dealt with this problem before. If you end up needing to have it serviced, that site is wonderful and about half the cost of what canon charges, plus they do amazing work on these powershot cameras.

When I press the button to turn on my Canon G9 the lense extends and then immediately goes in and on the LCD it shows "E16" Any clue what that means?


You're going to have to get it serviced since it will likely need a part replaced. If you need service on one of these, I'd highly recommend: www.camerasandparts.com They exclusively work on the Canon Powershots only and they do amazing work. The best part with them is they are about half of what Canon charges and the service with them is excellent. They really know these cameras. Good luck with it

How do you restart the Canon G9 camera?


There is not way to reset it if you get “lens error”. The lens stuck, you need to send it for repair.
