    I have the exact same problem. Mine worked for 2 months and all of a sudden on my European vacation quit. There is hundreds of people that have had the same problem, but canon will not do anything for these people. I always loved Canon products. Since then (2 years ago) I havent even looked at canon. If they make a lemon they should at least stand behind their name and warranty it. I could see if it was a few , but it seems there is hundreds os people with same problem.

Something is bent or jammed service will probably cost nearly as much as a replacement camera. Sorry. You can try to cycle the zoom button on the camera a few times before you again try to power off and retract the lens but I am not optimistic of any solution short of repair or replacement.

My canon g7 shut down power with objective out . i change the battery and dont respond .thanks


Its not a problem with the battery, the G7 and the G9 have a problem where a loose screw inside the camera shorts it out and causes it to not power. The repair service is about $85 total for a new part, installation and return shipping of the camera!

I think I've caused a short in my canon G7 & it will not turn on


Unfortunately, you have just found the one limitation of CMOS technology...they do not survive power spikes. Sorry mate, but it is probably stuffed good!

Try also taking out the hard drive and the dvd drive to make sure that they aren't shorting out the motherboard.

Also try another stick of memory besides the one that came with your laptop to be sure the memory isn't bad.

If after you do these steps you still can't get video then your motherboard is bad.

Canon g7 stopped working, lens out but no power


Most likely a loose screw shorted out the power in the camera. For service on these, we recommend www.CamerasAndParts.com They are the best for service on the Canon Powershots and they are not expensive at all. I'll post a video below from a customer referral for this problem on the G7 to them. They are the place for help with this problem.

Lens errors (E18 errors on Canons) 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's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

Cannon G7 need help


Hi
Had the same problem a few months ago.There was a high pitchedwhisltle and I think the screen said "lens fault.turn off camera" or something similar.Bought a G9 to replace as the 7 was out of guarantee but sent the 9 back to the e-bay reseller as it was obviously secondhand with grit around the lens ring and the viewfinder.Ebay never again!.So 3 months ago ago I tried the G7 again with a fresh charged battery before I consigned the camera to the loft.I noticed that each time i switched on the whistle and message was there but the lens extended slightly further each timeso I kept rebooting until the lens was fully extended.Turned the camera off and on again and everything was back to normal.It seems that this may be Canons protocol when a camera goes back.Its been absolutely fine until today.It wont boot up at all.I have tried 2 fresh charged batteries and its dead.Any ideas anyone?
